It's been mentioned by a few of you in the comments section, but a controversial column entitled, "Like Bucs, Penguins Still Have Work To Be Done" has now been removed from the Nutting-owned Piratesreport.com website. However, it is still available for viewing through the wonders of Google's cache feature.
The author, Paul Ladewski, made comparisons of Bryan Bullington to Marc-Andre Fleury, among many other low blows at the Penguins' expense. The PG's Bob Smizik really brought Ladewski's story to light yesterday, and questions whether it was meant to be funny or was merely a case of a writer pleasing their boss to the point of extreme.
If Ladewski's aim was to get people talking about Pirates Report at any cost, mission accomplished. But the removal of the article, especially considering who owns the site, definitely raises a ton of questions.
