PENS

The Pens are looking to add Crosby and Malkin to the PK mix. I always think this is a great idea, in theory. [PPG]

Couple last spots on the forward roster remain to be claimed and will Daniel Sprong get one of them? He and Beau made this preseason bearable at least. [Trib]

Top-line winger could be a revolving door. Fine, at least Eric Tangradi and Zach Boychuk aren't walking through that door. [PPG]

Sportsnet team preview of the day is your Pittsburgh Penguins. Each aspect of the team is graded, and the grades are, um, not realistic but at least our defensemen are handsome so I guess an A makes sense. [Sportsnet]

The new episode of the Penguins Garage League Podcast is here and we can finally talk about some actual games even though no one has seen them. [SoundCloud]

NHL

Here are the Super 16: How challenging first quarters could affect teams with high expectations, plus the preseason rankings. [NHL.com]

Chicago Blackhawks are still trying to move left wing Bryan Bickell and his $4 million cap hit. [CBS Sports]

Will the Rangers be able to re-sign Keith Yandle, and more questions in the NHL.com weekly mailbag. [NHL]

Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts columns asks why there's a sudden delay in expansion talks. It all seemed to be going on so swimmingly, and then ... nothing. [Sportsnet]

Nobody is safe in Carolina, from Cam Ward and Eric Staal to Jeff Skinner and Jordan Staal. Let's say they want to move #11 - is he still a $6M for 7 years player? That's what Shero was offering him too. [Charlotte Observer]

EUROPE

Oohh loogit here Slava Voynov's not driving a Traktor any more. The dearly departed ex-King has picked SKA St. Pete for his next destination. This article doesn't say it but he'll also be a cap-exempt player. What a fine concept. [THN]

*Starred read of the day - ranking all European hockey leagues by strength and relative competitiveness. A fantastic article indeed. Peruse it over the weekend. [Habs Eyes on the Prize]
