Penguins' top goaltending prospects will move to back seat soon

When the Penguins prospects' optional practice ended Monday, coach John Hynes still hadn't decided who will be in goal for their tournament finale today at Budweiser Gardens. But regardless of whether he chooses Matt Murray or Tristan Jarry - or decides to have them split the game - this much is certain: Whoever plays likely will be getting his final opportunity to impress coaches and management in a game situation this fall.

Rangers center J.T. Miller looks on against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second period of Game 3 of a second-round layoff hockey series at Madison Square Garden on Monday, May 5, 2014.

NHL or Sweden for Oskar Sundqvist this year?

"He's been impressive," said John Hynes, who is coach of the Penguins ' minor league team in Wilkes-Barre and who is running their bench in this tournament. Sundqvist's size -- he is 6 feet 3, 209 pounds -- is an obvious asset; his wingspan is especially valuable when killing penalties and playing in his defensive zone.

NHL Is A Better League With A Healthy Sidney Crosby

"Sid the Kid" came into the league as the "Next One" and an heir apparent to Wayne Gretzky in 2005; he has not only lived up to the hype, but in many ways exceeded it. The only thing that has kept Crosby down is his unfortunate run of injuries, something that is hopefully behind him.

Crosby: Pens must 'find a way to get over that hump'

While just about every team gives lip service to their quest for Stanley Cups, there are generally only a select few who can look at a season as "championship or bust." The Pittsburgh Penguins have been in that group for some time, so maybe it makes sense that they canned Dan Bylsma and Ray Shero after a second-round exit.

Marc Andre Fleury vs. his backups

In summary, for seven best years of his career, Fleury has been backed-up by a goalie of some note for just one season, otherwise it's been a career backup who played his way out of the league and a trio of AHL-calibre goalies. With the exception of Vokoun, it's a group that any bona fide NHL No.
