Not The End Of The Road 6/5

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
For me personally, it was a great season. I ended up making it to 69 of the 76 regular season games to bring live coverage of the action, including the some of the Penguins longer road trips to Adirondack, Albany, Manchester, Norfolk, Portland, Providence, Springfield and Worcester. That, in addition to covering the team for their stint in the 2013 Calder Cup Playoffs, made me a much better writer and I have learned way too much this season to explain one post.

That being said, the season is never really over for me. While the Penguins have been eliminated for contention of the Calder Cup, there is still much to be said about the team that played this season. You might have noticed (and hopefully read!) throughout the season some of my features on some of the players. I plan to have a profile feature for more players up on the site over the summer.

There is also the always important FAQ's about who is signed through next year, which upcoming free agents are "restricted" or "unrestricted", understanding the difference between the two and the dates for deadlines on qualifying offers, contract buyouts and the start of free agency. That post will be coming tomorrow and will be often re-posted in some sort of manner to touch on things as it starts to get closer to some of the above mentioned dates.

So stay tuned! The season might be over, but there will be plenty to write about as we wait for the next time some Penguins prospects hit the ice. Don't worry, you only have to wait three months. The Penguins are having a rookie tournament in London, Ontario that runs September 5th-8th.
