PITTSBURGH (KDKA 93-7 The Fan)- The Pittsburgh Penguins are in the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2009.

A lot has been said of the moves that General Manager Ray Shero made at the trade deadline and Shero told Bob Pompeani that depth was a benefit in the first two rounds.

“Right now we have a deep team,” Shero said. “I think we needed that during the course of the playoffs so far with some guys moving in and out of the lineup and giving us some different looks.”

Shero added that while he thinks that this is his deepest team, the best team was the 2009 squad that won the Stanley Cup.

A lot of fans are thinking that to have a successful season, the Penguins have to win the Stanley Cup. But when Pompeani asked what would be a successful season for the GM, Shero said that it’s too early to determine that.

“I’m not going to get into what constitutes in my mind a successful season,” Shero said. “We’re into the third round of the playoffs, we’re one of four teams playing and we’re excited about that.”

Shero added that he will reflect on the season in the summer and where the team goes moving forward.
