Before we take a dive into the links I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Robbie and I will be joining the Pensburgh team this season as a contributor. I'll be in charge of the Pens Points a few days a week and post the occasional column to go along with that. Being a lifelong Pens fans myself, I'm excited to have this opportunity to engage with other fans and bring our readers insightful and interesting content on our beloved Penguins. I look forward to talking Pens with all of you here in the comments or on Twitter where you can find me at @rjnaugle2. I want to thank Mike and Jimmy for having me on board and I look forward to being a part of the team. Let's Go Pens!!!
