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.


Money on the board!  Current total: $2

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

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.
