Now What Pittsburgh?

from Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

How the organization moves on from this humiliating loss is merely speculation at this point. General manager Jim Rutherford and company will have the better part of three months to adjust this roster as training camps for the 2020-21 season aren’t scheduled to begin until mid-November.

“I haven’t even given it much thought at this point,” Sullivan said via video conference from Toronto. “We just lost the series. It’s disappointing. It’s emotional. We care. We all care. It’s emotional. I’m not trying to dodge (the) question. I just don’t know if I’m prepared to answer it with a valid answer. I’m sure we’ll all have to go back and look at the experience and try to evaluate it and assess it and see where we’ll go.”

“It’s a really hard one to evaluate,” captain Sidney Crosby said. “That’s the honest truth as far as trying to break this all down. It’s a tough one to break down overall.”

The Penguins may have limited routes to go. With the NHL’s salary cap remaining flat at $81.5 million, the team will have considerable decisions to make on the futures of restricted free agents such as Jarry and the goaltender he replaced in Game 4, Matt Murray.
