The Pittsburgh Penguins roster is all but set next year as they have filled some big holes in free agency. They upgraded their defense, their bottom six, and their goaltending.
With restricted free agents Brandon Sutter and Nick Spaling left to sign, the Penguins could have very little room to make a signing to get their 13th forward. Who could that be? Let’s take a look.
In the past four days, the Penguins have lost 10 players who saw NHL game action last season to free agency.
That doesn't include right wing James Neal, who was traded last week.
General manager Jim Rutherford said he doesn't mind.
Rutherford made it clear when he replaced Ray Shero changes were coming.
“I think we've done a lot of good things during these past few...
Almost anyone who followed the Penguins this past season would agree that they need better players on their bottom two lines. The regular season struggles of third line center Brandon Sutter could be largely attributed to the carousel of wingers that played alongside him. Who would better fit the description of a player that could help […]

Perhaps one of the biggest bloopers in the history of the Pittsburgh sports station, Root Sports, they showed Brandon Sutter on air naked in the locker room. Kris Letang was eating pizza in front of him. We have a feeling this will be talked about for a long time.Go ahead, read the rest »
Poor Brandon Sutter. The Pittsburgh forward has been compared to his father, Brent, throughout his young NHL career. Will Brandon be as good as Brent? Which will have more points in the NHL when all is said and done? Brent hoisted the Cup twice, will Brandon? You get the idea.
Unfortunately for Brandon, these comparisons never stop - even when he was named the Player of the...
Brandon Sutter realizes his role as a checking-line center won't be changing with his new team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. He does have reason to believe it's a job that might have become a little easier.
After spending the past four seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes having to defend against Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, Sutter now counts both as teammates.
