Rebuilding Jarred Tinordi by @disgruntledbill

1:23:00 PM 0
Tinordi wears 24....which is strange. 

This past summer the Penguins signed defenseman Jarred Tinordi to a two way contract worth $500,000 at the NHL level. Jared Tinordi is one of those names of players that sticks in the head for some reason, but why? Sure, Tinordi was Captain of the London Knights when they won the 2012 Ontario Hockey League title, but again who cares about major junior?

Chemistry: Not Just for High Schoolers by @MedinaMarie_PI

12:00:00 PM 2

Could overall lack of team chemistry be a discerning factor on the Penguins bench?

It is no secret that the Pittsburgh Penguins are suffering right now. Be it from starting the season with a daunting and abhorrent schedule, the fatigue of playing in back-to-back championships, and lack luster off season roster moves. Ineffective play and scoring droughts by key stars have also lead to the Penguins under performing in mid-November.

As much as media and fans alike would like to pin point their performance (or lack thereof) on one key factor, it just isn't possible. All of the components listed above have come together to effect one another, and effect each player, differently. Sum it all up and you have one sloppy and disjointed show.

What's Next for Jarry? by @disgruntledbill

9:02:00 AM 0
Tristian Jarry is up....for now 

Jim Rutherford said the plan all along was to call up DeSmith for one game against the Jets on October 29th.  This allowed Jarry to play the 27th against Hershey and the 28th in Bridgeport. Jarry was then later recalled before Pittsburgh went on their western Canada road trip. Jarry got the start against Calgary, while Murray started against the Oilers and the Canucks.

The Penguins likely are in the market for a more veteran NHL backup. Looking forward through November’s games , it doesn’t appear that there are many starts that will be heading Jarry’s way. Especially if you believe the company line that Jarry needs to play, not ride the bench the rest of the month.
