Questioning The Culture Change In Pittsburgh

from Rob Rossi of he Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, No team in this city is better at controlling its message than the Penguins, so I have to believe the messages management has been sending behind the scenes are the ones they want out there.

Pens Fans, Save Your Hate For Hartnell by @ChicksDigHockey

I’m not some hipster hockey fan. I'm not that cool. If Twitter were high school (and I’m not saying it isn’t) I would be sitting at the nerd table. I am a loyal Penguins fan.

Making the Piece Fit Back in the Puzzle by @BrianK_PI

By all accounts, Rob Scuderi wasn't what Ray Shero was hoping for last season when he signed him to a 4 year, $13.5 million contract. It's arguable that the Scuderi contract was the one mistake that pushed Shero over the edge and out of a job. It wasn't realistic to expect the same player who left Pittsburgh for Los Angeles just four years prior, but even reasonable expectations...
