Penguins’ McCann Can Bring Unique Skills to His First Playoff Run

There are just two weeks left in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2018-19 regular season schedule, but their plans for the postseason are anything but set in stone. As of Mar. 23, a mere 10 points separate the Metropolitan Division-leading Washington Capitals from the first team outside the playoff picture, the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Penguins are stuck in the middle of the Eastern Conference standings battle.

Penguins’ McCann Fitting in Perfectly

On Feb. 23, 2018, the Pittsburgh Penguins traded for Derick Brassard and believed they had finally found the long-term solution for their third-line center . With superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin centering the top-two lines, Brassard initially made the Penguins the deepest team down the middle in the NHL. Derick Brassard never found his mojo with the Penguins and was traded to the Florida Panthers after less than a season. (Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports) However, it...

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann review – a moral failure

Netflix’s long-awaited documentary on the McCann case offered no new facts, no new insight – it didn’t even have a point of viewRumours of difficulties with Netflix’s documentary about the Madeleine McCann case have abounded almost from the moment it was commissioned. The McCanns themselves refused to take part and asked everyone around them not to either. At one point, it was said that it was going to be cut from an eight-part series to an hour-long one-off. Then it was going to be pulled altog...

Penguins Trade for Gudbranson Is a Head Scratching Move

I mentioned a few days ago that the worst move the Pittsburgh Penguins could make at the 2019 Trade Deadline would be dealing for Alex Chiasson of the Edmonton Oilers. It appears Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford saw that and decided to blindside everybody with a jaw-dropping trade. The Penguins sent Tanner Pearson to the Vancouver Canucks for defenseman Erik Gudbranson just as the deadline struck. Getting rid of Pearson in itself isn’t bad — he had been reduced to a fourth-line role and w...

Penguins 2018-19 Trades – How’d They Do?

As has been the case over the last few seasons, the Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t wait until the 11th hour to start making moves. General manager Jim Rutherford was active on the market all season long, making several small moves before a blockbuster deal in early February. The Penguins are still fighting for a playoff berth so it remains to be seen how these trades will pan out over the entire season. For now though, it seems like Rutherford has done a great job of bolstering the NHL roster ahead ...

This deal comes just a few hours ahead of the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline.

Penguins Must Be Buyers at Trade Deadline

As the Feb. 25 NHL Trade Deadline quickly approaches, general managers will need to consult their staff to see whether they want to be buyers or sellers. The Pittsburgh Penguins are hanging on for dear life to the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and if they want to be serious contenders to win their third Stanley Cup in the last four seasons, they need to be buyers. Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford has never been shy to make deals at the deadline, and he will need to be a bu...

Penguins Look to Fresh Faces to Spark Scoring & Chemistry

For the last few seasons, the months of February and March have acted like a revolving door for the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. Between injuries and trades, the stretch run portion of the season always brings new faces, new numbers and new looks to the Penguins’ dynamic. Up to this point, the 2018-19 season hasn’t been much to write home about. The Penguins are barely holding on to the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 63 points, and the evidence as to why is apparent ...

Penguins Get Depth & Flexibility in Bjugstad, Blueger & McCann

As strange as it may sound, the Pittsburgh Penguins have had a problem at the center position the past two seasons. Despite being blessed with two of the most dominant center icemen of their generation in Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the lack of production from the rest of the centers has been a thorn in the Penguins’ collective side. It was one the main reasons they were bounced out of the playoffs last season by a deeper Washington Capitals team and also why they started slowly this ...
