Subheading: Speedy Gibbons will have opportunities
The Penguins, undergoing leadership upheaval as they are replacing the general manager and head coach, may have seen Gibbons touch the ice for them for the last time.
Pittsburgh went with Jim Rutherford as their new GM; had they hired Pierre McGuire, who drops Jerry York’s name in NBC hockey broadcasts approximately once every ten minutes, the Brian Gibbons situation might have already ended favorably for him, but alas, this piece points out that he will have a number of opportunities afforded to him in the future.
In fact, the Pens could still bring him back, but his status is in limbo.
