Kingerski: Let’s REALLY Talk about Penguins Season and Future | PHN+



Pittsburgh Penguins trade talk, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin

The last few offseasons have not been banner years for the Pittsburgh Penguins, literally or figuratively. After months of living in a COVID modified life, fans are both frustrated and optimistic as we all anxiously await what comes next.

On the verge of announcing the 2020-21 NHL season, the season’s framework will be unlike any other before. There will be only 56 games, or perhaps less. Fans are unlikely to be allowed until February or March at the earliest. And players will be encouraged to cloister for their own safety.

As we’ve seen with MLB and the NFL, cancellations, delays, and small outbreaks are more than possible. They’re quite probable.

But that’s the NHL. How well will the Penguins stack up in their new division, what is realistic now and where do the Penguins go from here with a flat salary cap, gridlocked NHL trade market, and a 33-year-old Sidney Crosby?

It’s time we chat.
