A look at the future of Simon Despres with @MadChad412 and @H_P_Hockey

The Pittsburgh Penguins can't seem to catch a break when it comes to injuries. I guess we all we were all kidding ourselves if we thought that the Pens' players that were representing their countries in Sochi, for the Olympics, were all going to make it through without an injury. Defenceman Paul Martin injured his wrist and will now be out 4-6 weeks. That, along with the fact that...

Penguins Update: Simon Sez…Despres Needs to Play

There’s no denying it. The Pittsburgh Penguins enjoy a wealth of riches when it comes to defensemen.
