The Pittsburgh Penguins in 2 Sentences Or Less: Part 2, by @_MAF29

A follow-up on my previous piece (by the same name), I will be giving a season's worth summary of each player, in two sentences or less. Here we go!

Sidney Crosby: Started slow, sure. But he's definitely heating up, and he looks a lot more comfortable.

Evgeni Malkin: Still am score.

Kris Letang: Been missing time with injuries upon injuries. Gotta feel for the guy.

Olli Maatta: Quietly solid. Started off with some rust, but shook it off quickly.

Scott Wilson: Notched his first NHL point and NHL fight whilst defending Geno. Good man.

Conor Sheary: Scored his first NHL goal off a Crosby feed against the elite Tuukka Rask. Good man, part two.

Marc-Andre Fleury: Has missed some time with a concussion. But before the concussion, he was the Penguins' rock.

Matt Murray: This kid softens the blow left by Fleury's absence. The future of Pittsburgh's goaltending is currently 2-1-0 as he notched his first career win against the rival Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ben Lovejoy: Started off strong...isn't doing too well lately.

Brian Dumoulin: Perhaps Pittsburgh's best defender throughout the season, even though he's been doing it quietly. All the while paired with Ben Lovejoy.

Daniel Sprong: Sent back to Charlottetown, but scored 2 goals in his first game back in a 4-1 Charlottetown Islanders win, including the game winner.

Pascal Dupuis: Retired or not, he's a legend. #ThankYouDuper

Nick Bonino: He's been snakebitten in terms of goals. Still performing solidly.

Phil Kessel: After a long drought, the Phil notched two goals against Columbus. Still trying to find his groove with Pittsburgh.

Jeff Zatkoff: Definition of inconsistency.

Kevin Porter: He's...there.

Trevor Daley: The return of the Rob Scuderi trade. Already exceeding expectations - good on him.

Beau Bennett: Out with injury due to a TJ Oshie hit. When not serving pizza, he's been scoring some nice goals and setting up some nice plays!

Sergei Plotnikov: The amount of times I've said "PLOTNIKOV ALMOST!!!" is unacceptable. Still searching for his first NHL goal.

Patric Hornqvist: Also snakebitten on goals. He isn't exactly playing the best he could, however.

Chris Kunitz: Not appearing too often on the scoresheet, but he's definitely picking up his play.

Matt Cullen: Performing as expected, solid fourth liner and penalty killer.

Eric Fehr: Solid penalty killer, almost always has a short handed chance. His versatility is important.

David Perron: Been alright, throughout the lineup. The Perron-Geno-Phil line has since been broken up, however.

David Warsofsky: I mean...he's been okay. Not the best, not by any stretch.

Adam Clendening: Do you think he draws tallies on the wall every time he gets scratched? I bet it's a very detailed wall.

Ian Cole: His contract isn't bad (at all), but he's not playing as well as he was last year (he was evens scratched once by Sully). Hopefully he picks the play up.

Thanks for reading!

  1. The pens need to trade Crosby and make a similar trade like was done for Hershall Walker that won Dallas 3 Super Bowls......
