While I do admire the talent of the players on the roster for the Pittsburgh Penguins, I can’t always agree with how they run their organization. They decided to take down the picture of future Hall of Famer (and ex-Bruin) Jaromir Jagr from their locker room. Why? They still say he’s an active player. (If you’ve seen how he’s been playing in a Devils uniform, it’s pretty clear that that’s debatable.) However, they decided to swap him out for a confirmed retied player (and also ex-Bruin) Marc Recchi. (SB Nation)
