    Probably yeah. Something Bourne pointed out is that a lot of these uber-skills are something the best players add/use more as they get older and can't rely on their old tools as much.

    Sid is such a great guy. We're very lucky.

    “Oh, the Johnston era. Well, in his second and final season as head coach, the Penguins opened the season with a rather unimpressive 3-0 loss in Dallas. It was Kessel’s first game with the Penguins, you’ll recall. After the game, a member of the Penguins — I can’t say who it was, but let’s just say, it was a pretty prominent person — approached me and said, “Holy ****, this guy as head coach just isn’t going to work.”

    From Yohe’s latest piece. Any guesses as to who that was? I’m glad they were intelligent enough to see what we all saw anyway. I’d guess Letang or Kessel. Would be hilarious if Sid though.

    Could be any one of Downie, Comeau, Dupuis...or even Kunitz.

    I'd guess Dupuis, Kunitz or Letang. Guys who had been around long enough to know what the team needed and what would/wouldn't work.

    Some reason Yohe rubs me the wrong way. Anyways, I think that Dupuis is a good guess. I also liked this from his piece:

    Not a rah-rah guy, lacks leadership, etc. etc.

    Yup exactly the guys I thought of. Plus they're guys who had been around long enough to form a good enough relationship with Yohe where they'd be comfortable saying that to him.

    Kunitz seems too "polite" and if Letang said it I think it would've made the news at that time. So my guess is Dupuis. Plus he let the news out about the locker room rift this past season. Or whatever it was.

    Yeah Tanger doesn't say stuff like that. Dupuis is who I'd go with as well.

    I kind of feel it was Sid, given how much Sid hated playing under MJ.

    Oh ****, totally forgot about that. Yeah, that seems like the more natural culprit.

    And yet he’d still be better than Jack Johnson....hell, he’s better than JJ just sitting on his couch watching hockey...

    Hard not to like the guy, even though he was part of the Despres trade. Glad to see him be part of that run the following year.

    Enjoy retirement, Rev

    Are arms like this good for hockey or just social media?
