What now? Penguins face crucial offseason after flameout

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jim Rutherford's question was rhetorical. The answer - whenever the Pittsburgh Penguins general manager arrives at - will determine how the franchise emerges from the rubble of a first-round playoff sweep at the hands of the New York Islanders.

"Are guys too content with where they're at in their careers because they've won a couple of Stanley Cups?" Rutherford wondered aloud Thursday as his team packed up for its longest offseason in 13 years.

Just 22 months removed from becoming the first team in a generation to win consecutive championships , captain Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Penguins are at a crossroads.
