Yeah they should be fired since half their team had mental malfunctions against us in the Playoffs. Also they don't seem to have anybody who can cure Malkin's "ugly" and Cindy's crying disease..
Pens dismiss medical staff
While teams have been busy signing players and reshaping their squads this off-season, the Penguins have made some drastic changes, but not to their roster.
Instead, Pittsburgh cleaned house with their medical staff.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported, via ProHockeyTalk, that the Penguins fired their entire medical staff, which was led by Dr. Charles Burke, the team’s head physician since 1988.
“Burke, 57, who oversaw center Sidney Crosby’s concussion treatment and Mario Lemieux’s career-long back problems, told the Tribune-Review on Thursday night he was informed July 10 that he and the team’s medical staff were being dismissed,” wrote Rob Rossi and Josh Yohe of the Tribune-Review.
"Burke twice cleared Crosby to return to play last season, but Crosby has played in only 63 regular-season games dating to January 2011, when he suffered his concussion.
"Michael Collins, a clinical psychologist with extensive neuropsychology training who heads the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, also played a key role in Crosby’s treatment for this injury."
