The weekend that was and a Malkin update...
The Pens have also cut down the roster to 27 with the first question answered of where Christensen would start the season and it will be with the Baby Pens. He has a less then stellar preseason going basically unnoticed in most of the games that he was a part of. The only questions left are about Staal, Welch, Talbot, and possibly Letang on who if any will make the team. Welch and Letang have the hardest task ahead of them because of the Pens 6 Defenseman on 1-way contracts. Staal might have an easier time making team if it is for just 9 games until Malkin hopefully returns.
Also what seems to be the only real story about the Pens for the past 8 months is Malkin. The second opinion on his shoulder was good news since it was revealed that he does not need surgery that would have put him out for at least 4 months. While the Pens did not have any time table on his return, he still could be back within the first few weeks of the season.
