Why did they leave?
Is it a mere coincidence or something more? I think it's the coach, Michel Therrien. His Final series antics - working the referees by complaining how the Red Wings cheated - annoyed his players. A national writer mentioned this in an article. That even Sidney Crosby had a tough time swallowing the company line.
Why those players left might be coincidence and a money grab by the players.
Still, I can't help but think that something might be rotten in the city of Pittsburgh, or at least with the Penguins organization.
