PHN Q&A: Penguins Changes, Anger and Trades



The Pittsburgh Penguins will anxiously watch the results from New York on Wednesday, where a single Islanders point will eliminate the Penguins from playoff contention for the first time since 2005-06. After the Penguins blew their shot to take command of the Eastern Conference wild card, fans’ blood boiled while the players spoke softly with the remorse and despair of a team about to miss the playoffs.

In the video, we spoke of potential Penguins trades, changes, and the harsh realities to come.

It would be the first time in the careers of Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin they miss the playoffs. The Penguins’ core, also including Sidney Crosby, should be asked a very specific question about their future.

From PPG Paints Arena, I took dozens of reader questions submitted from Twitter. As expected, many of the questions dealt with the future of GM Ron Hextall and potential off-season changes.

We took questions about Penguins trades, including Jake Guentzel and Bryan Rust. Also, what should the Penguins do with Jeff Carter?

It’s a Penguins Q&A that takes no prisoners because we also get to the direct question surrounding the Pittsburgh Penguins.
