Penguins In Need Of Spark
After tonight’s loss against the Montreal Canadiens, the Pittsburgh Penguins are still looking for a spark. They are back outside of the top eight and searching to pull together a few wins. With 30 games left, the Penguins are going to have to pull out one heck of a finish. Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby cannot do everything themselves and a supporting cast is desperately needed in Pittsburgh.
It seems like a lot of Penguins fans are looking for General Manager Ray Shero to make another blockbuster move right before the trade deadline, but I certainly hope that this doesn’t happen. Last year, the Penguins picked up Marian Hossa in exchange for some very promising players. Marian Hossa helped them make the Stanley Cup playoffs, which I felt was a very good move by Shero. However, I hope that Shero does not even think about a move that big this year. The Penguins show a lot of promise in their young core and don’t need to give up any more draft picks/young players. I don’t believe Shero will make a move like the one last year, but I get tired of hearing the talk of one.
On a positive note, Luca Caputi, who was just called up from Wilkes-Barre Scranton, scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game and his very first NHL shift. Congratulations to Caputi, God Bless you (sorry I couldn’t resist).
Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers for their 6th Super Bowl championship!
