Where Will Gary Roberts Go?
Some sad news brought to us from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and our friends at The Pensblog:
Rick Curran, who represents Roberts — a veritable folk hero in his season-plus with the Penguins — said yesterday that Roberts will continue playing, but not in Pittsburgh.I say "sad news" because Roberts, at 42, became a bit of a star among the Pittsburghers, and WWGRD a slogan for the ages. (I have one of the bracelets sitting on top of my TV.)
"He very much enjoyed his time there," Curran said. "But he understands that Ray [Shero, the Penguins' general manager] has a number of items on his agenda that would take priority."
You wonder if he'll take that run at being president.
