Never Play Tom Sestito Again

Sad.  Pathetic.  Disappointing.  Those are three words that sum up the first period of last night's 7-4 win over the Winnipeg Jets.  That the Jets even put up four goals is enough to shake the Penguins.  They did it to themselves by playing Tom Sestito.

Nick Bonino and Frank Corrado, a One-Sided Bromance

Yesterday at the trade deadline the Penguins swooped in with a pair of moves, one that netted 23 year old puck moving defenseman Frank Corrado from Toronto.  Turns out he's already been a fan of one of the Penguins.

Penguins Score a Pair of Defenders at the Buzzer

3pm had come and it looked like the Penguins had stood pat, a move that left some comfortable and others worried.  Then the rumors came out and the trades trickled in.  Jim Rutherford had pulled out a pair just as time expired.

F Eric Fehr, D Steve Oleksy, 2017 4th round pick to Toronto for D Frank Corrado

Looking to add some depth to a depleted defensive unit, Rutherford sent the already waivers cleared Fehr to Toronto, along with defensive defenseman Oleksy, to Toronto in exchange for 23 year old offensive defenseman Frank Corrado.  Seen as a reclamation project of sorts who can fill out the blue line in a puck moving manner, Corrado has seen 69 games of NHL action scoring 3 goals and assisting on 5 others.

Penguins Acquire, Lose Defencemen
