Report: Penguins to fire GM Ray Shero and head coach Dan Bylsma

Rumors have swirled around the Pittsburgh Penguins since their elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Tuesday night. On Friday, it appears that the organizational overhaul will come to pass per TSN's Bob McKenzie:

Shero, who came through the Ottawa Senators and Nashville Predators organizations, has been the Penguins' general manager since 2006. Dan Bylsma joined the team as a head coach in mid-season in 2009, and led the club to the Stanley Cup in his very first year. He's amassed an impressive 252-117-32 win/loss record during his tenure as head coach. 

McKenzie expects Jason Botteril to take over from Shero on an interim basis, and suggests that Crosby's agent Pat Brisson could be a front-runner to replace Shero as the Penguins' general manager.
