With all due respect, what on God's green Earth did Ray Shero see in Tanner Glass?
Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said they could look to upgrade their defense but noted that they aren’t the only one. He Added they could add to their goalie “depth.” The Senators could use a top-six forward who can score. If the Wild decide to put Matt Cullen on the trade block, expect the Senators to show some interest. Corey Perry isn’t happening. Darren Dreger said on the NHL Network that the Red Wings, Kings, Bruins, Flyers and Maple Leafs could all be after Ducks winger Corey Perry. Predators GM David Poile on the trade market: “I have a team that’s not playing as well. I’m probably on the phone a little more than I regularly am.” Penguins GM Ray Shero is reaching out to teams and letting them now what he might be interested in. The Oilers could be one of those teams. A source said that the Penguins are one of the teams to ask about defensive defenseman Ladislav Smid. The Pens are open to upgrading their blue line with a big bodied defensive defenseman and a puck moving defenseman. The ...
The Pittsburgh Penguins are going to upgrade their roster before the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It’s what Ray Shero does. One expects there to be a winger added to the mix, potentially to play with Sidney Crosby – oh, those Jarome … Continue reading →
Penguins defenseman Simon Despres is available again. Three members of of the Blue Jackets organization were at the Penguins-Lightning game, GM Jarmo Kekalainen, assistant GM Chris MacFarland and senior advisor Craig Patrick. The Penguins are looking to add a defenseman that could play with Kris Letang, or for insurance if Letang is traded before his contract expires at the end of next season. GM Ray Shero said he hopes to sign Letang and Evgeni Malkin to contract extensions. Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson could fit along side Letang. Johnson has a cap of $4.35 million through 2017-18. The Penguins may also be intrigued with idea of adding winger Jarome Iginla. The Avalanche may be looking to trade a defenseman so they’d be able to keep Tyson Barrie up when Erik Johnson and Ryan Wilson return. Barrie and Stefan Elliott are the only two that don’t have to clear waivers. -KTD
The Pittsburgh Penguins have allowed 16 goals in their last 3 games against the Montreal Canadiens, Carolina Hurricanes, and Florida Panthers, respectively. The defense has been horrendous. It looks the same as it did against the Philadelphia Flyers in the playoffs last year. Do we trust in Disco Dan and Ray Shero, or are the consistent breakdowns in defense a philosophical problem with this management group? At least with Sydney Crosby healthy they can score goals to make up for the defensive deficiencies. Anyone notice Malkin didn't play against the Canadiens on Saturday? What will happen tonight?
I only see GM Ray Shero trading Despres for a James Neal type of deal not just a rental like an Iginla for example.
The most extreme Penguins fans blame coach Dan Bylsma anytime the Penguins lose. General manger Ray Shero has the look of somebody who knows any
Write it down. Ray Shero will trade Kris Letang this year.
What to Watch For: Pens vs. Hurricanes Team Scope: The matchup we’ve been waiting for is finally here. The Penguins will face old friend and teammate Jordan Staal and the Carolina Hurricanes for the first time this season on Thursday at PNC Arena. For lack of a better word, it’s going to be – well, weird – seeing Staal in red and white as he became an integral part of Penguins history after spending six NHL seasons in black and gold. Staal, now 24, was taken second overall in 2006 by Pittsburgh – the first draft selection by then newly-hired general manager Ray Shero – and broke into the league as an 18-year-old rookie. He went on to become part of the successful three-center model with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but more importantly he was a key member of the Penguins’ 2009 Stanley Cup championship team. But Staal wanted a chance to play with his brother Eric, so the Pens traded Jordan to Carolina at the 2012 NHL Draft for Brandon Sutter, Brian Dumoulin and the No. 8 overall pick (Der ...
Happy anniversary to the biggest trade in Ray Shero's tenure. Five years ago today the Pens acquired Marian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis from Atl
Kris Letang trade rumors: What I think of it is not much because I don't believe rumors nor do I like to post any of the sort to KrisLetang.org. It goes without saying that I would support Kris no matter what team he players for; the same I believe can be said of all his fans. My thoughts on these rumors is based on the Pens current defense and its depth. That depth is bolstered by Kris Letang (his speed on the ice; offensive awareness). I seriously doubt that Ray Shero would even consider trading their best defenseman, even for a forward position or another defenseman. Maybe I'm wrong or I'm just overly optimistic, but I see *and hope* Kris will be on the Penguins for the rest of this season and the next ones to follow. - Theresa
Mark Eaton is back with the Penguins. No! Why oh why? He is terrible. He's the Tyler Kennedy of defense. Come on Ray Shero!! Smdh
Ray Shero goes "Back to the Future" with signing Mark Eaton. Is Shero above or below 88 mph with this one?
Does Beau Bennett performance tonight make Ray Shero Not look for a trade?

Tangradi tearing it up in Winnipeg. Fire Ray Shero.
He always uses phrases like "As Ray Shero told me.." When in actually he was 1 of 30 people Shero spoke to at a presser
You know just eating lunch with Dan Blysma and Ray Shero at Fridays 😳

"Co-owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle had a message for (Ray) Shero."
Shero needs to trade all of the Pens bad players like: Engelland, Kennedy, and some draft picks for Jarome Iginla. Come on Ray ***
Still waiting for the Ray Shero presser whining about Gudbranson
but what if Ray Shero has naked pics of TK? Mind. Blown.
Two years ago today, Ray Shero committed highway robbery on the Dallas Stars and gave us and Matt Niskanen. Thank you, Ray.
Tyler Kennedy has naked pictures of Ray Shero, I'm convinced.
I Geno is hurt and out for some time I would like to think ray Shero would make a move...
Only people more upset Jeffrey scored that than Panthers are Dan Bylsma and Ray Shero.
I bet Ray Shero still wakes up laughing about the Neal/Niskanen trade.
Actually happy when Fleury is starting a game. I hate this world that Ray Shero has forced me into.
this blackout hasnt been that bad since i saw Dan Bylsma, Ray Shero and today
I guess Ray Shero won't be trading for Cal Clutterbuck.
2 years ago today Ray Shero pulled off a pretty awesome trade Sending Goligoski to the Stars for Neal and Niskanen in return. What a steal..

To all you philthadelphia flyer fans you might have beat Pittsburgh last night but you blow *** this year 8-9-1 record this year impressive!
“Flyers' recipe for beating Pens is as old as grade-school recess: Add turmoil, stir as needed. Ray Shero's dad invented it.”
I am starting to think that Ray Shero is not related to Fred? This Pens team would have tapped out in 2 seconds against the Broad St Bullies
Friedman had originally thought that the Rangers and Avalanche were discussing a Michael Del Zotto and Derek Stepan for O’Reilly and another defenseman, but was later told that Stepan was never discussed. Friedman wouldn’t be surprised if the Avalanche called the Panthers. It doesn’t look like the Red Wings would be interested in Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney. The Oilers may be wondering what to do with Ryan Smyth. It could be just a blip, but he has one year left on his deal and it’s 35+ contract. Penguins GM Ray Shero was scouting the Wild-Avs game last week, and Friedman notes that Matt Cullen has “Penguin written all over him.” The CBA was expected to be complete last Saturday, but they are still working on it. -Jonathan
CBC reports GM Ray Shero was scouting Matt Cullen at the Wild-Avs game last week
Pens Ray Shero looking at a trade with the Wild for 1 of 2 players ,Devin Setoguchi and or Pierre Marc Bouchard. I like the play of Setoguchi better and thought he would have fit well with the Pens a few years ago when they were looking at him as a trade for Alex Goligoski.
Rumor: Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero has been scouting Minnesota Wild as of late and is believed to be interested in Devin Setoguchi and P.M.Bouchard.
GM Ray Shero is in Minnesota scouting tonight's game. Pens looking for top-6 winger Setoguchi maybe??
Clutterbuck off mid-way through the first, and didn't look hurt. Ray Shero's in the building, did we trade Cal?
So James Neal got 3 points tonight, 2G and 1A. Leads the league in PP goals. Scored 40 last year. Ray Shero is lucky he is not in jail for stealing. He got James Neal and Matt Niskanen for Alex Goligoski. A few nights ago Alex Goligoski was a healthy scratch for Dallas.
I know Tangradi never lived up to his end of the bargain, but we still should have gotten more in return! Com'on Ray Shero...
F Eric Tangradi traded to Winnipeg for a 7th Rd Pick
Pit forward Eric Tangradi has been traded to the jets for a 7th round pick
I hope Ray Shero and Mario Lemieux are watching and taking notice what a different team they are when Kris Letang is not in the lineup. He (and Gino) need signed to long term extensions as soon as they are eligible. Their d-men are too slow moving the puck without him.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and GM Ray Shero announced today that they have recalled defenseman Joseph Morrow from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Morrow was the Pens 2011 first round draft pick (23rd overall) and due to the team’s recent injury woes on defense, he will most likely make his NHL debut tonight aga...
Hearing GM Ray Shero showing interest in Michael Ryder of the
Just a thought from today's hockey game. If Sidney Crosby got half the calls Wayne Gretzky used to get the penguins would be on the power play 30 minutes every game. I don't even want all ridiculous calls Gretz used to get when someone breathed on him, but when Sid is on a breakaway and gets hooked from behind, I think 2 minutes should be automatic. Note to Ray Shero and Day Bylsma.. You have the toughest badass on the planet playing part time in Wilkes Barre in the person of Steve Macintyre. Why is he not up with the big club to settle down the goonery that Crosby and Malkin have to put up with one a game to game basis. Its not enough that the referees refuse to call the constant interference and roughing, but they more often than not end up calling something when Geno or Sid try to provide their own protection.
Hey Pens score with a minute left, no shutout.yea. Is Tyler Kennedy really a top six forward and steve sullivan wasnt??? Who has a hat trick this season? Malkin, Crosby, Neal? Sullivan has one, Ray Shero is a horrible judge of talent. Won the cup with Craig Patricks players...Just like Mike Tomlin won super bowl with Bill Cowhers players
“He’s strong and he has to be one of the best skaters in the league,” “And he takes his defensive game seriously. He’s a guy, you watch him below the hashmarks, he’s a *** And that’s good for us.” - Ray Shero on Kris Letang Norris Trophy run
So I noticed something today about the Pittsburgh Penguins. Something that reminded me of the past, a Craig Patrick Penguins team( taking nothing away from Ray Shero). I was watching pre-game and realized they had 2 starting caliber goaltenders, that reminded me of Barrasso and Wreggit. Then I thought, back then, we had the best player in the league as center (Lemieux), now we have Crosby in that same position, the best player in the league at this time. center then was Frances, we have Malkin as Stevens was a power forward that blew up scoring on left wing when he came to Pittsburgh, so did James Neal after he came here last year on left wing. Back then we had a force on the blueline Ulf Samuellson,now we have a force on blueline Deryk Engelland. Back then they won the Pens 2nd cup, will this be the year Sidney wins his 2nd? Go Pens
Ray Shero has been busy a day after his Penguins’ first loss. Shero, the Penguins general manager, made two trades Thursday. Defenseman Carl Sneep was
The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired forward Chad Kolarik from the New York Rangers in exchange for Benn Ferriero, and have traded defenseman Carl Sneep to the Dallas Stars for a conditional draft pick, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
If Dan Bylsma really was behind that fight, then I'll contend he's the Tom Hagen to Ray Shero's Michael.
...it did today they'll be set for a strong run. Sutter instead of Jordan Staal appears to be another sharp move by Ray Shero.
"Let's hold Beau Bennett down in the minors until he's 30 and lost his peak potential" - Ray Shero (Sort of. Okay it was me, but that's how it seems)
Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa notes that if the NHL season gets underway, to not expect Sergei Gonchar to finish the season with the Senators. The Pittsburgh Penguins may target Gonchar, who is in the last year of his deal that will pay him $5.5 million. League sources are saying the Penguins are looking to bring him back. Penguins GM Ray Shero didn’t want to lose Gonchar before, but wouldn’t go to 3 years like the Senators did. The Sens won’t want to just give him away. Their blueline will already be without Jared Cowen, who had season ending hip surgery. -Jonathan
It's not every day the Pittsburgh Penguins produce a video tribute to a college hockey coach. But then again, not every college coach is as awesome as Joe Marsh! Take a look at "A Lasting Legacy," produced by the Penguins, Ray Shero '84, Peter McGeough '88 and Scott Lasky '05:
Somewhere, Dan Bylsma and Ray Shero are laughing their *** off...
Welcome to your new life as a Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins' fan: Baby Pens lose 2-1 to Binghamton while Senators' Goalie Robin Lehner stands on his head (35 of 36 saves) Joe Morrow had more shots than Big Dawg, which is vexing, but at least Dawg fought someone. Simon Despres finished +1, which you obviously like. The team dressed 7 Defensemen, and really I would have done the same thing, because all seven are borderline-NHL guys (like the Monster, Joey Mormina and Brian Strait) or sure-fire prospects (Despres, Morrow, Dumoulin Rouge, etc). Ray Shero is running the *** Arms Race with the Pens' depth chart on Defense - at some point, Pittsburgh will ice six home-grown D-Men. My prediction: Tang, Brooks, Despres, Morrow, Dumoulin, and Engel/LJ/Strait/Bortuzzo. We are loaded on D.
Shero on Lamoriello U.S. Hall call: Penguins GM Ray Shero talks about Lou Lamoriello in hono... Pittsburgh Penguins
And then maybe they'll do such a good job together and Geno will miss him so much he'll convince Ray Shero to make Gonchar a good deal/
this time next year, that's gonna look like a Ray Shero trade. Toronto is going to look VERY dumb
After having great seats, three ejections, almost two more, two 3-run homeruns by Garrett Jones, Hanley and A.J. getting into it, Hanley homering, being within 10 feet of Ray Shero and Ralph Kiner, and some guy busting the balls of the first base umpire all game in public, I would have to say this was the best game I've ever been to.
Ray Shero came through my checkout line at Giant Eagle today, I was geeking out
Ralph Kiner and Ray Shero sightings in the same game?!
Ray Shero just passed me in the stadium.
If the penguins go for PK Subban, I will personally call ray Shero..

Pens count on Sutter to fill Jordan Staal's role
In the immortal words of Fire Ray Shero.
That doesn't mean anything going forward, but Ray Shero historically doesn't give long term deals to players over 30, much less 35.

I vote for Ray Shero always in hunt . Makes great trades . The Stall trade was fantastic. Compare to Nash trade

Anyone want to tell me why Ray Shero isnt in the hall of fame? His jacket alone deserves induction.

After an offseason of ups and downs, are Ray Shero's Pittsburgh Penguins primed for another Cup run?
People need to let Ray Shero do his thing! He drafts Dmen he gets you Simon Despres and Joe Morrow. Forwards? Angelo Esposito. Nuff said!
Terry Bross, agent for Shane Doan, said by email Saturday that the Penguins remain "in the mix" for the unrestricted free agent. The Penguins made a contract offer to Doan earlier this month, and Bross said he has kept in touch with general manager Ray Shero.

trade one of the 4 1st rounders to Ray Shero for Paul Martin :-)
For those hating on Ray Shero, Mike Green just signed with the Caps for more money than any Pens players except Crosby & Malkin make.
Does anyone know why Pens' GM Ray Shero decided not 2 resign Arron Asham & let NYRags sign him & then signed Tanner Glass?
Ray Shero is a master of the throw-in player, might be a mistake to completely disregard Brian Dumoulin and his chances of making the team.
I think TK could show his true potential in Giant Eagle, but unfortunately none of the Managers there were interested
Too bad I couldn't give TK a chance to break out with Carolina... okay, can't say that with a straight face
i agree stshero so needs a winger dupes tk and Cooke can not cut it
Thanks for making me feel like a jerk tonight Evil Ray. No followback? What gives?
I enjoy reading people’s first sweater. My 1st name sweater I ever got was Ray Bourque.
any pens news ray Shero has been awful quiet
have managed to put together they wouldn't have much cap space remaining lol. Ray Shero is great!
Had a quick conversation with Pens GM Ray Shero about something unrelated to free agency, but of course it comes back to free agency...

Ray Shero better sign Shane Doan and spit in the face of Alexander Semin
Picking Over the (Winger) Bones: Is Ray Shero hovering high above the remains of the collective carcass that was...
I had a dream last night, in it assured me that TK will be traded and Ray Ray (we're tight like that) wasn't done yet!
Oh, of course. I didn't want him. But Ray Shero not even talking to us about him is disgusting, esp. after the Vokoun trade.
Well, the Minnesota Wild win the Parise and Suter sweepstakes. Matching 13 year deals just announced. What will Ray Shero do now?
Alex Semin is gonna sign with the Penguins? Ray Shero won a cup, hes not a moron, but I guess the DC media knows more than he does
Today in irrational Ray Shero hatred, had a Penguins fan compare Simon Despres to Chad Hermansen.
Can you just come back to Pittsburgh, please? I'll wash Ray Shero's car for your salary. And his dishes.
If his buddy Ray Shero took a chance on him he would become the second coming of Christ.
To be quite honest, Ray Shero with a ton of cap space for the first time in a LONG time scares me more than Parise or Suter.
Ray Shero could have done a much better job luring Ray Allen to the Penguins.
Signing Alexander Semin long-term would elevate GM Ray Shero's chopping block status from DEFCON 5 to DEFCON 1 before the ink dried.
Had someone on the blog cite Mark Recchi as proof Ray Shero can't manage personnel. People like this are why I say
Does anyone have any inside track on what Mr. Ray Shero is going to do? Haven't heard a *** word.
can you ask Pierre if he foresees Ray Shero trying to deal for Nash/Ryan or his plans will be more for depth players.
I love MG's patience at times but I wish Ray Shero would give Gillis a 'bold move' pep talk
Ray Shero making some more great moves to get a solid defense and a winman.
we need to go after some free agents lets get it done shero theres a nice one in nashvill SK
Exactly. Im not really sure what Ray Shero is doing. One of those prospects is moving out in a trade.
I really hope this Ray Shero would sign Alex Semin. Can't watch the parade go by!

Hi, I'm Ray Shero and I have a ton of money to spend. Free shots for everyone at penguin home games!
true but this is one of the reasons Ray Shero has been acquiring so many good defensive prospects over the years... So he could
Wow. The sun came up today. I thought Ray Shero was going to screw that up too.
Zach Parise or Ryan Suter aren't coming to Pittsburgh. They both signed a deal with Minnesota. We basically lost Staal for nothing. We didn't get Parise as the replacement. This is terrible. The Pens gotta do something about this, and they gotta do it fast. Time to make a trade for Bobby Ryan! C'mon Ray Shero (Pens' GM), DO SOMETHING!
ex- out maneuver entire . Wild GM Chuck Fletcher was an asst. to Ray Shero & Mike Yeo was an asst. coach in Pittsburgh.
oh sorry I forgot you knew last week when you were discussing contract offers with Dan Bylsma and Ray Shero
Suter and Parise to Wild? If this is the case, Ray Shero looks like a freaking TOOL right about now.

Ray Shero is a F'n GENIUS! There is a lot more to this Sid 12 year deal than most people understand. Also what a Captian to not even want a pay raise. Even after winning a Stanley Cup and Gold Medal. Not to mention a scoring title several MVP nominations a Rocket Richard trophy and countless epic moments. So pumped for the season, LET'S GO PENS!
