Which Pittsburgh Penguins players can and must improve next season? And we examined president of hockey operations Kyle Dubas’s past draft strategies and found a good possibility we’ll see a few Penguins trades. The Philadelphia Flyers are still on the NHL trade market, and no one is safe. The Montreal Canadiens might be on the phone with the Flyers. A former teammate says Jack Eichel stuck to his guns, and we found out why a Juuse Saros trade did not happen.
It was a pretty good day for the Hockey Now network. We were all over a few stories and were really at the fore of those stories. Oh by the way, we’ve expanded to 20 markets, and the NFL is next.
Thanks, Pittsburgh. I hope that we’ve delivered the coverage worthy of your support and will continue to do so. Our growth has been meteoric. In May 2022, 250,000 readers came to our Steelers site. Last month, 1.2 million showed up, and they might hit two million this month. Alan Saunders and Nick Farabaugh are doing great work. Combined with PHN and Pittsburgh Baseball Now, we’ll be doing nearly a few million readers per month (and eventually more). Your support is pushing us forward. Us vs. the world — just the way we like it!
