    Getting rid of the players that are underachieving and replacing them with players that want to achieve.

    I wonder what kind of goalie Hextall targets if Jarry and DeSmith don't right the ship. He was pretty positive about their top-6, said their defense when healthy is good and said their 1-12 were pretty solid, but he basically said nothing about their goaltending beyond "they're there". Makes me think that may be the first area he looks at addressing, but I'm not sure how easily he'd be able to do that.

    I don't want him to sink assets on a short term goalie fix like Raanta.

    Isn't Quick next door shit-neighbors with Jarry at the bottom of the league's standings for goaltenders?

    Because he knows him he would leave him in LA I’d imagine. Quick doesn’t help us.

    Pens have to get back some bodies on D. They are close with Petts skating now and maybe a week or so away. All else stay healthy. Now the Pens have a team that has things to improve as to team defense PK, PP, goal tending. But the upside is all that can be improved. Any changes will be cap space, a little more grit ect. For now new GM and others just have to see them play and make assessments accordingly.

    Quick carries a 5.8 cap hit (over a million more than the Pens' current tandem combined) through 2023. Furthermore, he isn't even Top 50 at even strength over the past 3 seasons. Hextall would have to talk himself into believing Quick could magically turn his game around at 35(!).

    Try to get Bennett outta Calgary. I think that could be a move to get us forward a bit.

    Once healthy they could move Dumo. IF POJ continues along his current trajectory and MP picks up where he left off. That's not bad young LD combo. We'd still have Riikola to manage bottom pair minutes again once he comes back. Well, he and Matheson.

    I'd definitely be amenable to trading Dumo and McCann.

    I imagine he has a long talk with Sully first. Something like is this the system you are going to stick with and if it doesn't work you're fired. We'd need a real high end goalie if Sully doesn't want to change and do we have the cap or assets or teams selling to get that. Otherwise we are just probably swapping problem for problem and similar things will happen.

    If we are fixing the goalie situation, 5m is about the least in cap hit you are taking back. Not that Quick is the answer, unless LA retains.

    Besides Hextall praising the coaching staff on Madden as Emp stated, I also heard a little of Madden’s interview with Burke and he also emphatically stated that he thinks Sullivan is an excellent coach, he likes all the assistants, and he sees NO ISSUE at all with the coaching staff....lol

    I don't think Quick is the answer.

    Right, but that doesn't mean their opinions don't change or evolve as time passes. They need to take a wait and see approach and spend some time here. Hell, they aren't even in Pittsburgh yet.

    Burke also said Sullivan was a great coach on a podcast with Friedman as well.

    Yes, this appears to be the ongoing delusion based on past history...”Mike Sullivan is the kindest, bravest,warmest, most wonderful hockey coach I’ve ever known in my life”...lol

    Regarding the coaching staff... The most revealing answer he could have given would have been, "Like everything else, we'll evaluate the coaching staff to make sure that the organization's standard is being met." Or something like that. Otherwise, no, he's not going to be overtly negative about the coaching staff to the media.

    Perfect candidate to unload Matheson for.
