Chris & Dan: Trade Rumors; Cullen, Pageau, & More14/12/2017 Duration: 01h29s
Last time we talked, the Pens came off convincing wins against Buffalo. Since, they’ve been anything but impressive, losing 3 of the last 4 games. In this week’s episode, we discuss what’s potentially ailing the team, and we frame the discussion around Jim Rutherford’s recent comments on possibly needing to make a trade to shake things up. We get into potential trade targets, talk about what would be worth/not worth dealing to improve the roster, and more. We also dig into the upcoming road trip, which starts with a marquee matchup in Las Vegas. With that, we discuss the return of Matt Murray, and evaluate Tristan Jarry’s performance in Murray’s absence. All that, and more, coming your way!
Chris & Dan: Tristan Jarry, Ian Cole, Greg McKegg, & Justin Schultz07/12/2017 Duration: 47min
Apparently it’s our personnel bonanza episode of the 2017-18 season, because this week there are a lot of roster ins and outs to discuss. Ian Cole is back in the lineup, but what’s going on with the trade talk? Tristan Jarry has been pretty damn good. Good enough to make you feel comfortable about him as a backup long term? Greg McKegg was placed on waivers. Does this affect anything at all? And Justin Schultz is likely out with a knee injury… What does this say about the Penguins’ defensive depth? All that, and more, coming your way!
Chris & Dan: Trade Rumors, Injuries, & Streaky Hockey30/11/2017 Duration: 58min
It’s been two weeks since we last got together to talk Pens, and a ton has changed since then. All of a sudden trade rumors are swirling, and Ian Cole reportedly is on the block. Matt Murray got injured against the Flyers, and now we’ve got an uncomfortable goaltending situation again. Also, the quarter-turn of the season has come and gone, so it only makes sense to break down our impressions of the roster thus far, who is performing well (and who isn’t), and who needs to step up moving forward. All that, and more, coming your way!
