Olympics End/NHL Returns

Hey pens fans,
With Olympics drawing to a close the NHL is returning. The trade freeze is about end and I expect a lot of moves thorughout the league in the ffirst day. This is the stretch before the trade deadline and it seems as though it may be a big year for end of season moves. I expect the pens to be in this until the wire, even though we have no playoff hopes. Some name I have heard being thrown around in possible pens trades are Gonchar, LeClair, Recchi and Malone. Now, we just have to wait and see what will happen.

Silence

Hey pens fans,
All has been fairly silent in te world of our Pens with the trade freeze ono for the Olympics. There have been many rumors about deals in the works for after the Olympic break. So far, none of these have involved any Penguin players. This is not to say noting is going on. I am fairly sure something may be in the works or at least that is what I have been hearing, but as off now I have nothing concrete with any specific players mentioned. If anything breaks I will post it, otherwise enjoy watching the Olympics. Good Luck to the Pens in the Olympics Gonchar (Russia) and Surovy (Slovakia).

The Saga Continues...

Hey pens fans,
Well, by now I am sure everyone hasheard about the gambling scandal involving Rick Tocchet. There is so much speculation floating around out there, that it is hard tell tell fact from fiction. All that I can definitely say is hard fact is that two other people have been named in the official police documents. One is a state trooper in New Jersey and the other a New Jersey Resident. That is also where the charges are being filed. There are many rumors about what players and others in the hokey world our involved. I am not going to speculate on names, but these rumors have everything from former Flyers, to players wives, to coaches, to GMs, to a few Penguins even being speculated about. Until there is hard evidence, such as criminal charges brought against these people, I will not say names. I am sure most of you have found those names in other articles online by now. This is a black eye for the entire world of hockey.

Hey pens fans,
Former Penguins' Player and current Phoenix Coyotes' Assistant Coach Rick Tocchet may be in a bit of hot water. According to many sources, he is accused of running a Nationwide Gambling Ring that NHL players and others within the league may have been betting in. More as I hear it...

Pens Fall to Senators Again/rumors

Hey pens fans,
The pens played the Ottawa Senators tonight in Ottawa. The final score was 5-2 Senators. Bogunieki and Malone had the Pens goals tonight. The Pens play their next game at the Mellon Arena on Wednesday against the Boston Bruins.
On to the rumors...
I have said this before, but I am hearing from a lot of places that there is a lot of interest in Ric Jackman and he may be moved soon. I am also hearing that there is also interest in Gonchar, I can hope, but thought i am hearing it all over the place, I fear it may be more wishful thinking. The Jackman rumors are from good sources however.
