With the Pittsburgh Penguins season officially coming to an end, it's clean house day. Just a few hours ago, the Penguins officially announced that they've fired all upper management:

The Penguins have relieved President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke, General Manager Ron Hextall, and Assistant General Manager, Chris Pryor of their duties, it was announced today by Fenway Sports Group.



Crosby, Malkin and Letang, while they are not spring chickens anymore, they are still performing at a rate that is well above league average, and are all still considered superstars. So while all these elite players are producing, the Penguins wanted to remain competitive, and missing the playoffs was not an option. So the ownership decided that a new leader must be brought in to take the team in a new direction.


Burke who isn't exactly new to being fired by NHL teams, has already found himself a new job just shortly after being let go.

Rob Rossi of the Athletic reported that Burke will be going back on Television for the Canadian networks during the playoffs:
