Pittsburgh Penguins

Pens Update….

It was reported today from Rob Rossi, Pen’s Beat Writer that Sidney Crosby was cleared for contact, which means he can officially start practicing and most importantly, getting hit.      That part of it will be critical moving forward.     

Also, it was reported that Chris Kunitz was resigned for 2 more years for about 3.8 million.     The Crosby news in my mind is the bigger of the 2 because this is the next possible step for him to start.     The Pen’s need him back out on the ice, but more importantly, for his own sake, he needs to get back out on the ice to move forward.     Skating around in practice with the white helmet is not doing him or his team any good at all.    Yes, he needs to be in playing shape, but that is not a concern for him.     He is meticulous with his workouts and his body.   

On to more news, Malkin will be on the shelf for at least another game with “soreness” to the lower body.    I love the NHL and their medical reporting.    Anyways, that’s it for now.
