Default Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach

If we are going to go that old, I would rather spend the money on Yanic Perreault (35). He would answer the need for a faceoff specialist. At the same time, he's slowing down. New NHL, all speed. I doubt your going to see us go out and sign any big names players (Shanny, Peca, etc.). Shero already made that very clear a few days ago.

"If it's about the money, don't come," he said. "I think it's a young team that's on the rise. There are some top players here. [Sergei] Gonchar's one of the better offensive guys in the league, Ryan Whitney's a young guy, playing with [Sidney] Crosby, hopefully, we'll have [Evgeni] Malkin. This is an up-and-coming team.

"A certain player at a certain time of his career has a chance to make a bigger impact with a team like Pittsburgh than they do with their current team, or they have a chance to play a more prominent role, or a leadership role. There's opportunity here. That's what I'm looking for.

"I'm not looking for the guy who wants the biggest contract, or the longest contract. Maybe a guy's going to take more of a role than he had before, and he's looking forward to that challenge. Maybe there's a good fit like that. If there's not, we'll keep looking." - Ray Shero
