LAS VEGAS -- The Pittsburgh Penguins are in limbo as new general manager Jim Rutherford continues to search for the team's next coach in the days leading up to the 2014 NHL Draft and the opening of free agency July 1.
It can be an uneasy time for anyone associated with the Penguins, but one member of the organization who isn't concerned, at least not yet, is captain Sidney Crosby.
Crosby has been monitoring all the changes going on in Pittsburgh from afar and is quick to point out that it's still only June, that training camp doesn't open until September, and certainly by then the Penguins will have a new coaching staff and a new plan of attack.
"I don't think you have to get too dramatic about it," Crosby said Tuesday from the red carpet at the 2014 NHL Awards. "It's still early. There's lots of time left."
