Pens Points: 2015 Group Best Pens PP Unit Ever?

Good morning one and all,

As Hooks covered yesterday, Oskar Sundqvist did suffer a thigh laceration injury, but Jim Rutherford said he did not have surgery and has instead rehabbed the injury conservatively. The team still expects him to be ready for training camp in September. [Trib]

Rob Vollman with an Insider piece which is paid content and I know most of you won't be able to read in full, but the thought itself is great fodder for discussion: could the 2015 Crosby - Malkin - Kessel - Letang PP unit rival the 1995 Lemieux - Francis - Jagr - Zubov one. [ESPN Insider]

UFA Tyler Kennedy is skating together with a group of Penguins at the new UPMS Lemieux practice complex and hoping to catch on with a team. TK on Pens Monopoly = Baltic Avenue. Just sayin'. [Trib - Mackey]

My kids are hounding me about Super Chexx bubble hockey. I have no plans to spend $3K for it to collect dust in my basement (which already features pool, foosball and air hockey tables). Well apparently Sid has one, and is pretty decent at it. [Trib - Mackey]

From around the NHL, the word is that the Kings and the Lightning aren't close to negotiating extensions with Anze Kopitar and Steven Stamkos, respectively. Both are set to become UFAs after 2015-16 season. What could be holding up the Stamkos deal, though? [Tampa Tribune]

Paul Martin is a Shark, and will bring a much needed security and calm presence to the Sharks blueline. Paired with offensive dynamo Brent Burns, Martin should support him well, just like he did with Kris Letang. [Fear The Fin]

Unless the anticipated "new evidence" is introduced and is indeed a game-changer, expect the judge to dismiss the Boogard family wrongful death lawsuit against the NHL. [TSN]

More legal proceedings, this time in Buffalo, where the DA is expected to send the Kane case to a grand jury, which will prolong the decision on whether to charge him. [Chicago Tribune]

If you had all the pieces and had to start building an ideal NHL player, what would that player look like? [Habs Eye On The Prize]

Write a piece critical of Jim Benning and you are going to get comments that have the words "Brandon Sutter", "top PP unit" and "40 goals" in the same sentence. [Nucks Misconduct]
