Lockouts Follow Shero

Rossi, Rob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Penguins general manger Ray Shero would like for this third time to be a charm.

For that to happen, this NHL lockout -- the league's third since 1994 -- must end before a significant chunk (1994-95) or the entire (2004-05) season is bagged.

Shero was an assistant general manager with Ottawa and Nashville during those lockouts. This is his first since taking control of the Penguins in May 2006.

"There is no benefit to having gone through it before," Shero said Thursday.

He met with his staff Wednesday, instructing them "to be ready for training camp to start tomorrow."

That can't happen.

The NHL has canceled its exhibition schedule through Sept. 30, and there are no scheduled negotiations between the league and union through at least Friday. The sides have not negotiated since Sept. 12.

On that date, Shero, an alternate governor for the Penguins, attended a Board of Governors meeting in New York along with team CEO David Morehouse and COO Travis Williams. Shero said he is familiar with the specifics of the dispute between owners and players.

He does not know when that dispute will be settled, though.

Instead of watching training camp practices this weekend at Consol Energy Center, Shero is preparing for the start of AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's camp Sept. 28.

Pending the length of the lockout, Shero said he will scout some of the Penguins' prospects in college and junior hockey. He will consider attending a tournament in Europe.

He must stay busy in ways other than contacting players.
