(Pittsburgh, PA) In the wake of last night’s series loss to the New York Rangers, the Pittsburgh Penguins are already in re-building mode. The topic in team meetings early this morning was how to obtain a remotely competent Centerman for team MVP, Jussi Jokinen. Jokinen, who was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins from Carolina in exchange for a conditional 6th or 7th round pick, led the team in Playoff point production with 7 goals and 3 assists. Easily the team’s best player and most important asset, the Penguins have not only committed to keeping the Finnish winger but to find him a Center that can actually do something with the puck.
During the meeting, discussions were also had on potentially making Brian Gibbons the new General Manager.
