Desjardins named Head Coach in VAN

23 June 2014 - 03:45 PM





Desjardins was also rumoured to be a candidate to take over in Pittsburgh, where the Penguins boast a roster that includes superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.


The former coach of the WHL's Medicine Hat Tigers said a chance to return to Canada was too good to pass up.


"Sidney Crosby's a heck of a hockey player obviously, but for me, when I looked at what was here — I looked at the two guys who are leading this (Benning and Linden), I looked at the quality of the players ... Canadian market, Vancouver fans — it was the right choice to come here."


Where do the Pens go now?

EDIT:  Mods delete if necessary.  Just saw it was already in the signings thread.  SORRY!

Doughty takes a shot at Sharks

12 June 2014 - 07:51 AM




NEW YORK, N.Y. - On the verge of winning the Stanley Cup, Drew Doughty remembers what it was like facing the same 3-0 hole the Rangers have now when the Kings faced the Sharks in the first round.


What he recalled does not reflect kindly on the likes of Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Dan Boyle.

"Once we won that first game of the San Jose series, we kind of had a feeling we were going to come back and win that series," Doughty said Wednesday several hours before Game 4 of the final. "And you could see it in their eyes and their team and their captains and leaders that they were worried about us coming back. So we don't want to give these guys any life."


As much as Doughty was complimenting his team for putting fear into the Sharks, it certainly can be construed as a shot at a core group that will more than likely see some changes after yet another playoff disappointment.


Shots fired.
