Sitting down with Penguins GM Ray Shero 

October, 16, 2009

Each Friday, I'll be quizzing some of the league's top execs, coaches and players, and it makes sense to start with the Penguins' Stanley Cup-winning GM Ray Shero, the son of the legendary Cup-winning Flyers coach Fred Shero. This season, the Penguins have begun their Cup defense with a strong 6-1 start, and, while happy, the GM notes that his team has a long way to go yet.

To read E.J. Hradek's interview with Shero and get the GM's impressions on the Pens' fast start, his top prospects and his favorite Stanley Cup story, you must be an Insider. Insider
