Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach
I've wanted the Pens to bring Perreault in for years, and I wouldn't mind it, though word is that he's not fast enough for the new game. Faceoffs are one area the Pens have been sorely lacking ever since Ron Francis left.
That said, you still need guys who can put the puck in the net, and a guy like Shanahan or even Sergei Samsonov would fit that role. I like Shero's approach and commitment to a young team, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet and pay out some cash to bring in the guy you need. Isn't that what we constantly get on Pirates' management for NOT doing?
