Sid a Penguin for Life!

It is official, Sid is going to be a Penguin for life. Not that I doubted that for a second, but for those of you who where worried, that is no longer a problem. The greatest player is here to stay and it is nice to hear it. Sid signed a 12 year contract worth $104.4 million dollars. No surprise to me and I wasn't even worried about the trade rumors, how can you get rid of Sid? The answer is you can't and you are freaking crazy if you considered trading him for someone else, good thing your not the GM and Shero is. Though I think most Penguin fans never had that thought cross their minds. Well watch out rest of NHL, we have Sid and Geno the two headed monster. Here we come Stanley Cup!  


Pens making some roster moves!

The Pens have made some changes in their line-up as expected. Jordan Staal was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes for the No. 8 overall pick, center Brandon Sutter, and Dman Brain Dumoulin. Sad to see him go,  but hopefully it will be for the better. I will always have respect for him and like him as a player. He has a bright future ahead of him.

The Pens re-signed forward Steve MacIntyre to a two year contract that is worth $625,000. 

Signed forward Warren Peters to a one year contract that is worth $100,000.

Forward Trevor Smith was signed to a one year contract worth $575,000.

Pens signed goaltender Jeff Zatkoff to a two year contract and forward Riley Holzapfel worth $525,000.

Philippe Dupuis to a one year contract worth $600,000 and Tanner Glass worth $1.1 million for two years.

Welcome to the Pittsburgh Penguins family. You better prove yourself if you want the love and respect of the Pens fans for ever.

Geno's Big Night!

Geno won the Ted Lindsay Trophy, the Art Ross Trophy, and the Hart Trophy (MVP). He stole the show and it was well deserved. After coming back from a huge knee injury and against all odds dominating the competition. He kept the Pens up and going with Sid being out, he really earned this. It was nice to see the rest of the NHL recognize him for the great player he is, as the fans in Pittsburgh already knew he was.
