Pittsburgh Penguins 2022-23 Season Preview

Entering this past offseason, it appeared that the Penguins’ front office run by Ron Hextall and Brian Burke had an impossible task of keeping all of their pending free agents.

A dependance on veterans clearly failed, and could have been what caused Barry Trotz’s surprise firing. But GM Lou Lamoriello doubledContinue reading “New York Islanders 2022-23 Season Preview”
