Following the Pittsburgh Penguins' failure to make the playoffs for the first time since 2006, Fenway Sports Group faced a critical choice: maintain the management team that built around their three veteran stars or take a new direction.

This morning, the Penguins announced their decision to part ways with both President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke and General Manager Ron Hextall.

This isn't entirely unexpected.

Since then, there's been a new development about Burke.
