Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach
I'm not sure how much of a impact Kehoe had on the team these days. Also, this is Shero's team now and he's cleaning house. This is no longer team Lemieux/Patrick. The decision not to resign Kehoe comes as no surprise to me and in the long run, I feel it's the smart move. Shero probably already has a friend lined up for the job and understandably so. It's his team and he needs to surround himself around people he knows.
At the same time, dropping Latin I really couldn't understand. I mean all the guy did was tape sticks and sharpen skates and after 18 years he must have been doing something right. While neither of these firings are a big deal in the greater sheme of things, I still can't figure out why Latin was fired. My only explanation is that it was a cost-cutting strategy.
