Phil does forecheck but he shies away from

Contact in the corner, sometimes to his detriment. I think a better coach could get that out of him though, he definitely has the speed to arrive first most of the time

Brag post time. Lots of people saw pictures of Malkin practicing and Fleury in his new pads but I just saw them in person during a closed practice.     I was down at the arena to get my security

Yes I agree that Crosby kids gotta go. Can I interest you in a phaneuf?

What can you tell me about Sergei Plotnikov?


Will he get significant minutes...Upside points wise?


is he a lock for the team?

Best case is 2nd line, doesn't seem likely given the winger depth. Probably 3rd or 4th depending on how the combos shake out.


I haven't paid a ton of attention to camp though. Everyone has been talking since he signed that he's a lock to make the team, but I haven't see him play.

USA Hockey wanted to remind me this morning to watch the Penguins take on the Lightning to celebrate Kraft Hockeyville in Johnstown PA.

I haven't seen a minute of the preseason. So can't really judge. Hope he's awesome.


In other news, I just had a first date with a girl who randomly ended up having a bigger Pens jersey collection than I have... So... I may be in love.

Word is he'll get a 9 game stint, then probably sent back. Unless he continues to impress, of course, but this team historically likes to give chances to veterans and wait on youth. Just ask Pouliot.

I wish I knew what was going on with Dupuis. At first, he had a minor injury that was no big deal. Then we hear he might miss the first game. Now we're talking up to 5 weeks? Wtf. Poor guy can't catch a break.
