Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

Shero’s job anything but safe

By Dejan Kovacevic | Trib Total Media

Dan Bylsma’s as good as gone, and Ray Shero’s job is anything but safe. In fact, all I’ve heard in the past 12 hours would powerfully indicate that the Penguins’ upper management is every bit as disenchanted with their GM as their head coach. And to reiterate, though now with greater emphasis than what I wrote earlier in the week, the drafts are the primary issue. As they should be.

This is a sensitive time for all concerned. You can’t print everything you hear, or you risk burning bridges. I won’t do that. But I do feel compelled to share that much.

And no, there is no firm sense for a time element, though logic would dictate it’ll be very soon.

Here’s a TribLIVE Radio podcast from this morning about Shero, Dan Bylsma, the Penguins and more.

For continuing coverage of this and today’s getaway session and more, follow our beat writers Rob Rossi and Josh Yohe on TribLIVE’s Penguins page.
