Putting the final grades on an injury-filled, offensively-lacking, disappointing hockey season in Pittsburgh wasn't all that difficult. The Penguins passed, but there's clearly a lot of room for improvement.

FORWARDS (C-): Sidney Crosby was easily the team’s most productive and consistent forward, putting up 28 goals and 84 points.

The Blackhawks won their third Stanley Cup in six years with a thrilling 2-0 Game 6 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night, the first time since 1938 that they captured a championship in Chicago.

Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith, the unanimous winner of the Conn Smythe award as the playoffs MVP, put one past Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop in the second, assisted by Patrick Kane.

More than a few eyebrows were raised when Penguins president and chief executive officer David Morehouse announced that both coach Mike Johnston and general manager Jim Rutherford would return next season.

This pronouncement was made less than 24 hours after the Penguins were unceremoniously dumped from the opening round of the postseason by the New York Rangers in just five games.

Brandon Saad scored the go-ahead goal in the third period, and Chicago withstood Tampa Bay's charge in the final minutes to square the Stanley Cup Final at 2-2.

The 2014-15 hockey season began with Casey Bailey pulling his blue and white Penn State sweater over his shoulder pads, leading the Nittany Lions into battle in the Big 10. Bailey’s year ended with him trading one blue and white sweater for another.

The Alaska native was passed over in the NHL Draft despite a successful run in junior hockey with Omaha Lancers.

Was it the injuries, the pop-gun offense or questionable coaching that sent the Penguins to their sixth straight early dismissal from the postseason?

Trick question. All of the above.

Several Pittsburgh natives continue their climbs up the NHL ladder. Brandon Saad, J.T. Miller and John Gibson are still playing in the second-round of the postseason.

Brandon Saad is in his third year in the NHL playing left wing for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Kevin Hayes scored in overtime and the Rangers‬ beat the ‪Penguins‬ 2-1 to take a 3-1 series lead.

Neil Walker’s contract expires after the 2016 season. The Pirates second baseman is due for a big raise in arbitration this offseason—likely to $10 million—and signing him to a long-term extension will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $12-$15 million annually.
