Lacing Up: Thin on the Third Line?

By Joshua Neal; Sep 12, 09:36 AM

The Penguins have been a hockey club that prided themselves not only on high-level skill and scoring ability, but the checking lines to back it up – occasionally even chipping in a big goal or two (see: 2009 Stanley Cup Finals). But as the years have passed and the big-name players have earned themselves long-term, big-money contracts, some of those role players and out-of-place third liners find themselves in new cities. What’s left behind? Matt Paul and I will discuss the dearth that has replaced a wealth on the Penguins’ third line in this week’s edition of Lacing Up.

What are the Penguins Thinking With Zolnierczyk?

By Nick Vucic; Aug 26, 10:37 AM

At the beginning of this offseason, the Penguins traded defenseman Alex Grant in exchange for Harry Zolnierczyk, a 25-year-old formerly of the Anaheim Ducks by way of the Philadelphia Flyers. Although Zolnierczyk was a Restricted Free-Agent, the Penguins re-signed him to a one-year, two-way deal worth $550,000, making Penguins fans scratch their head and wonder, “what in the world is Shero thinking?”
