- ¬†I'm hearing GM Ray Shero has taken some heat inside the organization for not calling the Penguins playoff run"unacceptable"¬†during his season ending press conference on June 12th. ¬†I was told team President David Morehouse was furious Shero called the Penguins being swept by the Bruins "disappointing" and not "unacceptable". Shero has not come off as being angered about the Penguins being swept but some very high ranking people in the organization were and still are.
- The talk of Kris Letang being upset and feeling disrespected by the Penguins is very real.
