Insider Only The Latest Penguins Buzz

Expect a lot of different line combinations the next couple weeks. Therrien may even look into splitting up Staal and Malkin if he doesn’t find the right combination for Crosby.
Pascal Dupuis could be on the verge of falling to the fourth line, according to a source.
Some insiders I’ve talked to seem a bit worried about Miroslav Satan and don’t see him being much more than a 17-20 goal scorer. The biggest concern has been the lack of velocity on his shot according to a source. It is still early
Last week a source told me a Penguins scout has been urging Ray Shero

to take a chance on Leafs forward Mark Bell who was put on waivers today. Some in the Penguins organization think he would be a great addition. I will likely receive word later in the evening whether the Penguins will make a play for Bell.
Daryl Sydor killed any trade value he had after the Stanley Cup finals.
Rich Curran the agent for Brendan Shanahan will begin shopping his client to potential suitors later in the week if the Rangers decide to move in another direction. The Rangers are expected to give Shanahan an official decision by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. Despite Pittsburgh being in the market for a right handed shot upfront, I am still getting the impression that Pittsburgh doesn’t feel Shanahan is a good fit.
