Steve Latin heads to Europe

Latin has accepted an invitation to be equipment manager for a team of locked-out NHL players making a European charity tour Dec. 9-23. The tour covers 10 games in seven countries and opens with an exhibition in Riga, Latvia, then moves to Moscow for a Dec. 11 game against a Russian all-star team that will include the Penguins' Aleksey Morozov. There will be other stops in Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway and Poland.

The 27-man roster for the team, called the Worldstars, will be coached by former Penguins defenseman Marc Bergevin and includes the illustrious likes of Jaromir Jagr, Martin Brodeur, Sergei Fedorov, Dominik Hasek, Robert Lang, Brendan Shanahan, Mats Sundin and Rob Blake.

I know this isn't a real coaching job, but if this gets Bergevins interest, what are the odds he'll be a pens coach sometime soon? I say the odds are very good

I'd say they're fairly good if the team is in the market for an assistant.

Buchy will/is going to coach for the Oilers when all is said in done, Ronny will probably stay in Carolina, so that probably leaves Bergevin for us out of the ex-Pen future coaches.

I wouldn't mind having him as a D coach at all. Just so long as he doesn't have to play *shudders*

I'd rather the Penguins hire an assistant coach with some experience than take a chance with a guy like Bergie.

I have to say Olcyzk has done pretty damn good for not having any experience.

Bergevin has been groomed to be a coach in the NHL for years, I'd have no problem taking him onto the staff.

I agree with you.
