The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed two goaltenders that could contribute at the professional level in a few years. The team’s 2013 second-round pick Tristan Jarry and 2012 third-round pick Matt Murray were both signed to three-year entry-level contracts. They will not be effective until they turn professional. Jarry, 18, will most likely return to the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL this season with a heavier workload. The 19-year old Murray spent the past three seasons with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL. Both goaltenders will be participating in the Penguins’ rookie tournament, which starts tomorrow.
In addition to these moves, the Penguins also announced the hiring of Mike Buckley as the team’s new goalie development coach. Buckley, 36, will replace the recently promoted Mike Bales. Last season, he was the goaltending coach for the University of New Hampshire. From 2010-2012, he worked as a goalie consultant for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

More important, he understands what they might mean for his future with the Penguins.

The interview ran last night on CBC's The National.
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
It hurt so much that Sidney Crosby couldn’t bear to watch the Stanley Cup finals until the very last game.
The four-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Bruins ranks right up there among the lowest points in Crosby’s career.
