Hopefully they will find a way to stink up the division again this fall. Would love to see them fail. Can't stand that franchise and organization. Not a fan at all of Marty Brodeur or Jagr.

The native of St-Pascal, Ontario has spent a lifetime in coaching, including stints as an assistant with Chicago, Quebec and Colorado in the NHL. He was an associate coach for the 2002 Canadian Olympic team that won a gold medal in St. Lake City and served in the same capacity for Canada at the 2006 Olympics in Turin, Italy. In addition to his coaching experience, he served in the dual role of General Manager and head coach with the Florida Panthers from 2006-08.

“Jacques is a highly-respected and accomplished coach who will be a tremendous addition to our staff,” Shero said. “He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our organization because of his extensive background as a head coach and an assistant.”

“I know we’re all going to benefit from having Jacques Martin on our staff,” Bylsma said. “Jacques and I have spent a great deal of time over the last few weeks discussing this possibility. It will be great to have another voice, another perspective – especially from a man of Jacque’s experience. We’re all looking forward for getting together as a staff and preparing for the coming season.”

Interesting hire by Pittsburgh, IMO. Martin adds a wealth of knowledge and experience behind the Pens bench. Hopefully the team and coaches can benefit from that. Maybe he knows how to not choke in the playoffs. :chuckle:
