  • Ray Shero is officially out as the Penguins' GM, which means Ray Shero is officially on the list of GM candidates for the Caps. [WaPoESPN ($), Fansided]
    • Should the man who pulled the strings for the Pens all these years be the next guy to do that in Washington? Some say yes... [Talk the Red]
    • ...others, not so much. Yeah, that draft record is really not pretty. [RMNBStars and Sticks]
    • Can you imagine Shero and George McPhee switching places? No, I cannot. [CSNW]
