Latest update from Pittsburgh reveals Kyle Dubas' controlling tendencies

Published September 22, 2023 at 10:18 PM

Kyle Dubas has been well-known as a control freak for a number of years now, and in his first season in charge of the Penguins, he's showing us just how controlling he is.

A goaltender mandate


According to a recent report, management has already put a mandate in place that the Penguins goaltenders will all be made to wear white pads throughout the 2023-24 season.

Here's Tristan Jarry in his new pads. All of the Penguins goalies are wearing white this year, per instructions from management.

Usually, goaltenders are given freedom to bring their own gear and design it the way they like, as long as they're in team colours, but it appears that freedom won't be given for the Penguins.

A playoff team?

The Penguins missed the playoffs for the first time in years in 2022-23, but after acquiring Erik Karlsson, Reilly Smith and some solid names this summer, it appears they're ready to bounce back in a big way this season.

They're still an ageing team, but with Crosby, Malkin, Guentzel, Karlsson and Letang leading the way, their Stanley Cup window is still open, and with Dubas at the helm, things could turn around in a big way.
