Interesting move, maybe he can help develop a guy like Fowler or Sbisa.

Is this a full-time or part-time gig for him?  :tounge:

He's not going on all the road trips, so it looks like a part time gig.  Certainly wont hurt having him to mentor some of the young players they have.

Surprised he didn't wait until the middle of the year to decide.

 

j/k I do have to give him some respect.  Good player and all, despite being a Duck and Devil.

Will it translate into good coaching?  Who knows.  Some guys do well, others not so much.

Ya that's true a lot of good players can't relate to less skilled players and have a hard time figuring out how to coach them.

Best example would be the great one superb player but just couldn't teach others how to play the game. Which I still can't understand but having a guy like Niedermayer running your D has to be a big plus. That guy was easily 2 behind the perfect human at least it will work wonders for Fowler.

May you lace them up in heaven forever!
