Who is the Penguins best PK'er (Offense and Defense)

12 players on the Penguins roster average at least 1 minute on the PK per game. I'm curious who other fans think the best PK'er on the team is, regardless of forward or defense.

Dupuis is their best with Cook a close second.

The best PK is to not take a penalty to begin with! That worked well during the win streak!

On a game-to-game basis, it's probably Dupuis. But if we were up a goal with 5 minutes left in a game 7, I might have Adams out there before anyone else. That guy would dive in front of a train if it meant preventing a shot on net.

Crosby. I understand he isn't out there a whole lot but when the puck is on his stick look out. He'll rag it up into their zone then throw the puck back to the D and blow 25 seconds off the clock. Plus he's good on the defensive faceoffs.

Of the listed candidates, I'd say Duper though.

Voted for Martin.

Adams/Cooke/Dupuis are pretty close.

This year it's Dupers. Cooke any other year. Until last game, he was just okay on the PK. Then the game he took over he showed why he was #1 for so long.

I'd say overall:
1) Dupers/Cooke
2) Sutter
3) ______________
4) Adams (dropped off considerably)
5) ____________
6)_____________
1049201401) Glass

Dupuis, I think Martin's the most consistent PK dman though Orpik might be the best when he's on his game.

nailed it.

On D, its Martin.

I'm excited for Jokinen just because he can win faceoffs.

Has he historically played PK as well?

He's been one of Carolina's PK guys every year. They've never really had a good PK as a team in that time so I don't know if he's actually any good at it, but he does it I'm just looking at his ToI and the team's PK%

mathematically, I believe it's Mark Eaton. If you look at PK numbers with Mark Eaton vs PK numbers sans Mark Eaton, it's like bottom-5 PK vs top-5 PK. Therefore I voted Mark Eaton.

Note: I hate Mark Eaton.

If you look at wins and losses, Mark Eaton is by far our best player. We are like 12-1 with Eaton in the line-up. Dude's a beast.

seriously, he's a pretty solid PK guy. He also just so happened to show up when we switched our PK strategy back to one that doesn't suck.

Cereally, Joe Victory needs to start getting PK time. Glass blows and brings nothing to the team otherwise. Joe Victory brings more speed, grit, tenacity, face-offs, but he doesn't penalty-kil....yet. He has to start. If he's not a full-time PKer next season I'm going to freak the F. O.

agreed. No clue why he wasn't eased into PK duty from the start of the year. Especially when we are putting units out there without an actual center. Sutter and Sid are our only PK centers. It really doesn't make sense to me.

Orpik is the Pens best penalty killer every time he sends himself to the box.

Interesting Sutter didn't get a single vote.

Curious as to what you guys think of him now that we've had a number of games under our belt.

I like him a lot. I just think Cooke and Dupuis are really good penalty killers.

with faceoffs factored in, Sutter really probably is our most valuable penalty killer.
