Five reasons the Pittsburgh Penguins aren’t a mortal lock to win the Stanley Cup championship, courtesy of Puck Daddy.

*Good piece from Elliotte Friedman about the mess that’s going on up in Calgary where Jay Feaster hasn’t impressed anyone.
 
***
*A few stats concerning the Edmonton Oilers in spread sheet form that would be very helpful if there was a Bruins version.
 
***
*Jarome Iginla is ready to fill whatever role the Pittsburgh Penguins assign him as he’s assisting on their drive to the Stanley Cup.
 
***
*Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman tells Pierre LeBrun that Marty St. Louis is not going to be traded, and that takes another impactful name off the trade block.

***
*Roberto Luongo trade chatter with the Maple Leafs should kick up in the next few days, and there’s really no good reason for it not too.

*For something completely different: somebody on Grantland trying to explain the 1990’s. We should start with Color Me Badd and IOU sweatshirts and then work our way back from there.
