Penguins Are Cheap

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Question: What do you get when team ownership is more interested in staying below the cap midpoint of $30.5M in order to qualify for a second round of revenue sharing than in putting the best possible team on the ice? Answer: The Penguins. There's discontent spilling all across the Pittsburgh room, multiple sources have dutifully reported to Slap Shots, and you should know that not all of it is directed toward second-year head coach Ed Olczyk, whose team was winless in seven going into last night's match in Boston. Yes, it's true, a number of big-name veterans have been put off by the way they've been deployed; there's consternation over the blatant lack of work ethic displayed by some of the Penguins' primary athletes — yes, that means you, Greg Malone, and you too, Sergei Gonchar — and there's confusion over why Eddie O seems to have identified the emotional Lyle Odelein as a scapegoat.
