Anyways... changing the topic away from lost causes, I thought this was a pretty funny insight into recent Penguins lore.

Back when Therrien was first hired, (Jen) Bullano was a PR intern with the team. Part of her job was to transcribe the coach's post-game press conference. During the public lashing, Therrien called the team "soft." But when Bullano and other Pens staff played back the tape to transcribe, they thought Therrien said "suck." So in the post-game transcript given to the media, Therrien said of the team, "They suck."

Of the two major newspapers, one ran a story with "soft" while the other ran a story with "suck." So Bullano, to her credit, went into Therrien's office the following day to apologize for the mistake - which is a scary thing if you know Therrien.

After Bullano said sorry for mistakenly writing suck, Therrien responded, "It's OK. I like your way better."
