    Which teams will the Penguins be bunched with this season?

    Which teams will the Penguins be bunched with this season?

    Lots of news to cover this episode as Hunter first starts the show out with TNT and ESPN releasing the TV schedule earlier today. How many games will the Pens play on national TV? Who will be their opponents? He then goes into the schedule overall and why this has been a long time coming with regards to scheduling new teams. After that, the episode shifts to which 3 teams the Penguins will likely be jockeying with for positioning. Are the Flyers and Rangers in there after their offseasons? Does Hunter have the Caps missing? What about Carolina? All that, plus a lot more, on this episode of Locked On Penguins.

    Who's going to impress in development camp?

    Who's going to impress in development camp?

    It's the last week of the offseason...at least for this show! Hunter starts this episode off with a Tyler Bozak update as he has signed back with the St.Louis Blues. What does this mean moving forward? Is the 4C job now Brian Boyle's to lose? After that, he focuses on the development camp roster and who stands out on it as that camp this weekend. Who has the best chance of making the roster this season? Is Valtteri Puustinen the most underrated player in that group? Hunter also focuses on the TNT roster that came out today about their broadcast lineup and then ends the show on a funny tweet that he saw earlier on Tuesday.

    Those Tyler Bozak rumors are heating up

    Those Tyler Bozak rumors are heating up

    It's a late-night one, but sometimes those are the best! Hunter starts the show with some more Tyler Bozak news as Elliotte Friedman has now linked him to the Penguins. When is the decision coming? What could the contract look like? Will he play when the team is fully healthy? He then gets into his Team USA roster and yes, it includes Jake Guentzel. But where does he slot in? Is this the best team the country has had in years? What players are left off? Finally, Hunter ends the show with some 3rd jersey talk and when that announcement will be coming.

    Sign Tyler Bozak to replace Sid for a bit?

    Sign Tyler Bozak to replace Sid for a bit?

    There's never a boring day with this franchise. Hunter dives into the latest news as Sidney Crosby will miss all of training camp and likely the first week of the regular season as he underwent wrist surgery. Why did the team wait until now? Was there any good logic in doing so? Hunter then goes into how the tea will proceed from here and what the center depth will look like for camp and start the regular season. First-line Jeff Carter? Third-line center Evan Rodrigues? After that, he shares his thoughts on both PTO's as Boyle looks to have a great shot at making the team. Could he play his way into an every-night role? What's the ceiling for Bartkowski? Finally, the show ends with Hunter pleading for Ron Hextall to sign Tyler Bozak as extra center depth. He can still play & then some.

    Mark Friedman is gonna get his shot

    Mark Friedman is gonna get his shot

    In the final episode of the week, Hunter first touches on the Penguins latest move as Louis Domingue comes into the organization on a 2-way deal. Is there a path to him playing on the roster this season? Is he likely to be the starter at WBS over Lindberg? How has he played throughout his career. Hunter then brings up Mark Friedman as he may have the inside edge on that 6th defensive spot going into training camp. It may not be what's best for the team, but he's always been Hextall's guy and that could weigh a lot on Sullivan. Who has the better numbers between Ruhwedel and Friedman? Should there be some games split between them? The show then ends with some thoughts on the Islanders signings and how that pertains to the Penguins, plus the NHL releasing their COVID protocols for next season.

    How much would you pay for Tomas Hertl?

    How much would you pay for Tomas Hertl?

    Is that some trade rumors as I hear? There's been some Tomas Hertl trade chatter throughout the day on Tuesday and Hunter touches on it with how this would be a slam dunk acquisition for the Penguins. As always, the trick is...what would the Penguins have to give up, and could they make it work? He puts together some monstrous trade proposals for Hertl as they'd be worth it with how the team is gunning for another championship to end the Sid & Geno era. Before that though, Hunter gets into the Penguins Fan Survey results that came out today and how his votes compared to some of the others. He then dissects the biggest eye-opener which was how a lot of fans would prefer to keep Matheson's contract over Pettersson. Why is that? Does Matheson get a pass for some things because he's only been here for a year? Or do fans not like Pettersson due to him not being "flashy?" Finally, Hunter ends the show with some Bet Online stuff as the Penguins points odd were released for this season. Should you bet the over or under?
