Was this win a miracle for Penguins? No, but they could use a few

The Penguins summoned Joseph Blandisi from their farm team in Wilkes-Barre Thursday, and it was a perfectly logical move.

With Evgeni Malkin ailing and unavailable, they wanted a capable forward who could be plugged into their lineup on short notice.

But 32 games into this season, it's clear that the Penguins need a more dramatic personnel move than simply bringing in a marginal NHLer from the minors, or trading for a spare part from some other club.

Forget a goal-scoring winger, or a physical defenseman.

It's time for Jim Rutherford to acquire the rights to a faith healer.
