PHN on the Radio: Gajtka Talks Pens Moves, East Changes on ESPN Pittsburgh



Where do the Penguins stand in the recalibrated Eastern Conference? That’s one of the questions I tried to answer while on with guest host Wes Uhler on ESPN Pittsburgh on Friday afternoon.

What if John Tavares and Erik Karlsson both end up on East contenders? Could the Penguins still consider themselves top contenders? Wes and I also discussed the implications of the Jack Johnson signing, why Anthony Duclair ended up in Columbus, where Matt Cullen might fit in, which rookie has the best chance of excelling in 2018-19.

Just skip ahead to the 13-minute mark of the audio player below for my interview, or listen to fellow former Youngstown Phantoms voice Wes tear it up in the place of regular host Adam Crowley:
