The PensBurgh Podcast is here for all podcast lovers who are interested in more takes revolving around the Penguins and the NHL Trade Deadline.

Hooks and I do not hold back when discussing the trade that saw Tanner Pearson get shipped out for defenseman Erik Gudbranson. The good, bad, and ugly aspects of the trade are talked about as we now look ahead with this last stretch of games remaining.

Topics such as the impact that advanced stats, the future of the Pens’ defensive corps, and a reflection and outlook on Jim Rutherford’s tenure as general manager are also discussed.
