LeClair certainly lobbied hard to go recently. T-Bo is done for the year so is going no where. Recchi lobbied to stay. Gonchar is untradable. That about sums it up.

Mike Therrien

I hope he was just made an interim coach

If Therrien were relieved of his duties, who takes over? I don't know who would want to take over this team with the disarray it's in.

I'm sorry, but Therrien was and is the best man for the job. He pushes these guys to play the best they can, the youngsters respond, the vets don't. If they don't wanna play 110% every night then good ridence. Country Club Lemieux is over folks. Therrien is the man of the future.

Agree 100%. The results have not been there the last 10 games, but they were more in each of those games than they had been at any time during Edzo's reign of terror. I love how this team is playing now despite their obvious short comings. The effort is there so I can not complain too loudly about the recent slump. And the experience these kids are getting will be invaluable come next year and beyond. Therrien is everything I had hoped that he would be and more.

Yeah, it's Therrien's fault this team is a joke.




We all know the way Olcyzk left the players. Therrien is trying to steer a team that was anything but a team before he came here. It'll take time.


We've already gone through one coach this season, dumping Therrien would be a huge mistake.

LeClair is the next to go. Via trade. Someone out there must have a 7th rounder they don't want.

Hopefully LeClair and Rechhi are out the door.

I have to think it's LeClair. The way he has been playing lately, cycling, digging in the corners, could be useful to some team in the playoffs. 6th rounder coming back.

I think (and hope) we could do a little better than that. Not too much better, but still.... I'd settle for a fifth rounder. Or settle for a true enforcer-type forward. With Cairns and a second big guy in the line up, Sid might not get molested quite as much.

#66...he's tried the player/owner route...he's eyeing up the coach/creditor title now.

I can't see Mario behind the bench. It just doesn't seem right.

I think that with Orpik back, and Cairns in the line up, teams already have backed down big time. Ever since we got Cairns Crosby really has not faced the total crap that he did game in and game out, culminating in the disgrace that was the Vancouver game. Right after that we got Cairns and it really has diminished markedly. Granted, the Flyers and Rags are pretty soft teams as well overall (Hatcher's goon play not withstanding) but still, teams have backed down. We do not need another 'protector' for the kid.

I agree. And Phil Bourque touched on this. He mentioned that Cairns presence alone might be a deterence. As regards to Brashear the last two games, Bourque called him a "bluffer". Said that twice he had an opportunity "to go" and chose not to.

As regards to MT, he signed a 3 year deal. He isn't going anywhere for now.

I won't be completely sold on Michel Therrien until he decides to give up on his man-crush for Shane Endicott. Sadly, he seems to be forming another one for Konstantin Koltsov.

no coach could win with this team! edzo got a bum rap and now coach t is starting to get one. all players have some weakness [well almost all] its the coachs job to put those players in a roll where they can use their talents, and keep their short comings hid. hence the term "roll players" the pens seem to be overloaded in roll players. the best way to do that is to try them at difrent spots. coach t has an edge because he has coached them before [but what works in the ahl doesent always work in the nhl] we [the pens] are not going any where this yr. so its a good time to try things with players that will be on the bubble for next yr.
orpik and cairns have helped a lot but with the loss of ziggy things still are not going our way. i hope to see a lot more of our younger players called up just to see how they do...but i don't look for it to happen till we move some of the older players..

I agree with everything you just said, but that has nothing to do with the fact Koltsov is STILL being tried as a scoring winger and Endicott is still seeing time as the third-line center. Both of which are just waste of time.

Bring in the reinforcements from W-B/S!

LeClair will be the ideal coach once all the dead weight is removed!
