Upgraded Pens

The Pittsburgh Penguins made significant moves this summer. It all started with the appointment of Kyle Dubas as the President of Hockey Operations. Then, he went on to make major acquisitions for his roster: Reilly Smith, Ryan Graves, and Erik Karlsson.

It will definitely be an upgrade from what we witnessed last season when they failed to reach the playoffs.

Now, with their aging core, the Pens are aiming to win one last Stanley Cup before Crosby, Malkin, and Letang retire.


Another Move Incoming?



It seems that Dubas isn't finished upgrading his team.

One of the last remaining interesting free agents in the market has spoken out, revealing that he had talks with the Penguins; none other than Tomas Tatar.

"It was, but I don't want to elaborate on it further. I'll keep it to myself. I've mentioned a couple of times with whom I was talking, and it always went the other way."


Tatar has been solid over the last three seasons, scoring 45 goals and accumulating 108 points with the Canadiens and the Devils.

He would be a valuable addition to the Pens, especially in the second power play unit. His leadership and experience could greatly contribute to Pittsburgh's pursuit of their ambitious goals.
