PITTSBURGH (SportsRadio 93-7 The FAN) — General Manager Ray Shero sat down with Joe Starkey of Seibel, Starkey and Miller and discussed everything from the teams roster moves to Matt Cooke’s headshots last year and what the league is doing to cut down on that kind of play.

Ray feels more comfortable with this year’s team given that guys like defenseman Zbynek Michalek and Paul Martin are more familiar with their roles and are ready to go, meaning there will be less of a learning curve.

One player that has some question marks surrounding him is winger James Neal and whether or not he’ll be more of the scoring winger the team was hoping they had acquired last year, and Shero talked about what they’re expecting to see from him.

On top of James Neal’s scoring, the team needs to become more efficient on the power play, and Shero expressed his disappointment in the teams inability to be effective with the man advantage, and how they’re hoping to change that this year.

Shero also talked about headshots in the NHL and what the league is doing differently under Brendan Shanahan, the NHL’s new Vice President of Hockey and Business Development and head disciplinarian.
