Tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins suit up for their first preseason game against conference rivals and my sleeper team for the 2015-16 season, the Columbus Blue Jackets. Both teams, once they assemble their regular season rosters, will boast young talent, a young, promising defensive core, and solid netminding.
As for tonight, we will only see (or should I say hear about) only a few of those players who will don the sweaters in the regular season.
Before I go any further, I have launched my podcast, "The Pensimist Podcast." Click here to hear the first episode.
But this is not a preview post for the aforementioned game; this is a summation of the last several months for the Penguins.
Like all of you, I'm thrilled that in two weeks, the regular season will commence and we will finally see some hockey. It's been a long time since May and I'm amped up! Let's go Pens!
