Each Penguins Defenseman Can Improve This Season
Depth on the Penguins’ blue-line has not been a problem in recent years, and will not be for the foreseeable future.
While the Penguins have overhauled a sizeable portion of their forwards, the defense has remained relatively the same. Despite two-thirds of their defensemen returning, each player will have a few questions to answer this season.
Even if the Penguins’ veteran defensemen cannot prove doubters wrong, it looks to be a promising season on the blue-line regardless. If injuries plague the Penguins again, their young defensemen will be called upon to prove they can play at the NHL level – which, they can.
