    The problem with firing Sullivan is, they'll probably just promote Reirden.

    I want a new coach with no ties to this team. I'm so sick of the past 3 head coaches coddling a grown man because "I want to play with certain players". That worked when he was the best player in the world. That's not the case anymore.

    None of these coaches are worth a damn. Get rid of them all.

    I'll instruct the defensemen to pinch at every opportunity and the forwards to mindlessly cycle the puck.

    You fire Sully for Galant only.

    Flames just fired Geoff Ward and hired Darryl Sutter.

    So far, the two coaching changes have been Montreal firing Julien and promoting Dominique Ducharme from within, and Calgary firing Ward and hiring Sutter, who was previously GM and head coach in Calgary and still lives in Alberta.

    We've yet to see a team fire a coach and hire someone who has to do any sort of real quarantining or moving.

    Does @ColePens actually lift or is the entire team going to end up looking like Petts?

    I have the impression @Honour Over Glory would be more likely to know about the juice (I don't judge) so I want my team on that.

    This is my one concern with firing Sullivan (though I am in favor of it). If our special teams are anything to go by, neither Vellucci or Reirden are guys I'd want to take over as coach.

    Hell, I'd rather Hextall step behind the bench temporarily than have Vellucci or Reirden anywhere near this club ever again.

    I figured Vellucci would be the heir apparent after Sully inevitably got canned, but with JR gone, I would be shocked if Hextall didn't look elsewhere for his guy.

    I can't remember the last time the PK was so profoundly incompetent.

    Like typically yeah it sucks to PK, but now as a fan every Penguin to the box equates to a feeling of existential dread and inevitability.

    So that's a long way of saying, whomever is coaching the PK better not be the next HC.

    I expect nothing but PR speak from Hextall and Burke all season. They're not going to fire him in-season and force themselves to scramble around looking for a replacement. It'll happen in the off-season after another disappointing end to our run, be it in the 1st round or by missing the playoffs entirely.

    If he's not fired before the draft, I'll be stunned--and annoyed to the point of not giving a shit about the next season pretty much at all. :laugh:

    I think it'll take something colossal, like Sid/Geno demanding it or the Pens going 5-30 in the final 35 games, for them to fire Sullivan even in the off-season. I think no matter what happens this season, they'll just make some changes to the lineup and hope that fixes things next year.

    This thread should be removed from the board. The inmates are running the asylum.

    I’m guessing it’s another “how dare you criticize the great Sullivan... 2 cups... are YOU a coach?” post, but eh. I liked the original better.

    Haha true.

    It’s crazy there are still Sully fanboys at this point.

    You just know the Pens would just promote Reirden to head coach. I think that would be worse than what we see with Sullivan.

    He’s not Hextall’s man so there’s hope. I believe Hextall is going to bring his own coaching staff... you don’t go to a legacy war with leftovers.

    In the off-season, I agree. But I think if Sullivan did get fired during this season, the replacement would be one of the current assistants on an interim basis, with Hextall filling the spot permanently in the off-season.
