… Thanks for the memories, Craig..

Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting the penguins will announce at a 12:30 pm news conference that general manager Craig Patrick will not return.

A replacement general manager has not been named, however, the team wisely has made this choice early on in the offseason which would allow them to compete for the services of candidates.

Who would you reccommend to vice-president Ken Sawyer?? Names being mentioned at this point include: Dean Lombardi and possibly Dave Taylor, who was just fired in Los Angeles.

In addition, a few articles have been written on this very topic, a very lengthy one by Molinari himself in yesterday’s edition which detailed each aspect of the organization that needs addressed. Very well written article.
