Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach
Recchi wasn't really brought in the first time to make the team better, just to provide a young team with veteran leadership. It just so happened that the lockout came and then the new CBA with a salary cap, and the Pens tried to make moves to win right away, which of course blew up in their faces. He would be brought back for the same reasons, and because he can still produce, even at his age. But I wouldn't do it for any more than $1.5 million either, and only for one season. I'm still hoping for Sykora or someone via trade that would be a better option than Recchi.
