Rumors - It's that time

Hey pens fans,

Mark Recchi will most likely return to the Pens this coming season. I cannot see him leaving, though he has drawn outside interest.

Gary Roberts has drawn heavy interest from Toronto and he will either be a Leaf or with the Pens and I am not sure how this will go.

Tom Poti is drawing lots of interest from all around and the Pens threw their name in the hat, but I do not think this will happen.

Robert Lang rejoining the Pens is a good possibility and it would not suprise me if he cocme back, though I am not sure why we need him with our curret roster.

Peter Sykora has also be mentioned as a possibility for the Pens, but I don't buy it. I have also heard it too many places to ignore it.

Craig Rivet is also bein looked at by the Pens, but I have no idea on the chances.

Rumors - Roberts, Recchi, Lang?

Hey pens fans,

Here are a few fast rumors.

Gary Roberts may be a Pen next season, but it is more likely he will be in Toronto.

Mark Recchi is going to be a Pen. He is not signed, but I am almost certain he will be.

Robert Lang - yeah, that name is a blast from the Pen's past - He may be coming back to the Pens, but it is not the stronggest rumor I have heard, but it has be talked about.

General Pens News

Hey pens fans,
The Arena meeting took place but little seems to have resulted. I think it was good to involve the public even though seemed to be more concerned about what will happen to the mellon arena site after the arena comes down, which is not he most pressing concern.

The Gary Roberts situation can now throw Ottawa into the mix with the Pens and Toronto for him.

There are no other majors notes at the moment.

Arena News

Hey pens fans,
There is a meeting at the Igloo Club in the Mellon Arena to discuss the new arena plans. Recently, the team announcecd that the opening of the new arena may be delayed until 2010. I will have more on the meeting, as I find out more.

01 June 2007

Captain Crosby

Hey pens fans,
Sidney Crosby has been named captain of the Pens. He is the youngest Captain in NHL history if I am not mistaken. This announcemnet solidifies what we alread knew. Crosby is a leader both on the ice and in the lockerroom. It is a quite a statement to his character to be given this honor at his youthful age. For anyone who didn't know, it is now clear who the leader of this team is.
