Was 2014 Ray Shero's Greatest Trade Deadline? by @PandaPSU

(Photo courtesy of PittsburghMagazine.com)Ray Shero is widely regarded as one of the NHL's greatest GMs. He was very successful in Nashville, leading the club to their first playoff appearance and setting the table for their 2005-06 season where they broke the 100 point mark.

Penguins Update: Where Have You Gone Harry Z?

When Penguins GM Ray Shero acquired Harry Zolnierczyk from Anaheim last summer for minor-league defenseman Alex Grant, I thought it was a terrific move. Given the departures of Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy, I figured “Dirty Harry” could fill an energy role on the third or fourth line, with the potential to put up Kennedy-type numbers. And he has. At Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. In...

Flyers honor Fred Shero with eight-foot statue

The Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday unveiled an eight-foot statue of Fred Shero outside XFINITY Live!

Examinging the Penguins' Trade Deadline by @griffTHW

Given Ray Shero's propensity for pulling off blockbuster deals, Penguins' fans woke Wednesday morning in anticipation of what (or who) would turn up under the trade deadline tree.  And, why not?  The G.M. has always displayed a knack for stealing the headlines, whether it resulted from the surprising acquisition of Marian Hossa in 2008 or a heist that snatched...

James Neal-Matt Niskanen trade could go down as Ray Shero's best

Pens GM Ray Shero talks trade-making turkey with Matheson

I'm sure that "more to come" applies to the first of what is likely a slate of "Hockey World" columns and/or blog entries by the Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson. He leads things off with a surprisingly frank conversation held with Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero, who is admittedly looking for a winger to play alongside Sidney Crosby (as per usual): ...

Penguins Update: Shero Paves the Way for a Stanley Cup

Say this about Penguins GM Ray Shero. He sure doesn’t wait for an invitation to join the party. In a pair of bold moves that preempted the NHL’s April 3 trade deadline by over a week, Shero acquired two missing pieces in the Pens’ Stanley Cup puzzle. On Sunday he swapped defensive prospect Joe Morrow and a 5th round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft to Dallas for veteran forward...
