"He doesn’t talk too much about himself," said Gaudreau of his father’s playing career. "Some of the alums tell me how good a player he was.

"Again, we’re treating this like playoffs so we’re in another series with another team.

If you’re Pittsburgh, create stronger pipelines to nearby Ohio — hell, start going after Cincinnati‘s targets, since they’ll have less to sell them coming from a depleted "Big East."
