    Default Dejardins expected to be named Canucks next HC

    Pens were all in on him as well. Looks like he's choosing Vancouver.

    Nothing signed yet, but Willie Desjardins will be in VAN this weekend. Assuming all goes as expected, he'll be introduced as coach next wk.

    Default Looking like Desjardins picking VAN over PIT to be their new HC

    I'm not sure what happened in Pittsburgh, but it seems negotiations are done there and Willie Desjardins has made his choice on where he's heading.

    Did he get snatched from out under Mario's nose, or did he snub Pitt?

    I would think contract length, money, and being able to choose assistants discouraged him. Everyobe is saying Tocchet will be on the staff so maybe thats a turn off for him. Maybe Ulf is up next. As a Pens fan this summer is just weird and full of dissapointing decisions. Was for getting rid of Bylsma but these decisons are just baffling.

    So I guess the Pens are more worried about their assistant coaches then they are getting the Head Coach they really wanted.

    If keeping Tocchet as an Asst means not getting your man, then they should just make Tocchet their head coach.

    Before you know it, Bylsma will be the best option to be their new Head Coach once they watch all the guys they wanted gone.

    I like Tocchet as an assistant coach. I bet he could hold guys accountable and would help especially someone like James Neal to develop his game and become more disciplined. If Desjardins doesn't want him as his assistant and it's a deal breaker, well, tough luck I guess. In general I agree that the head coach should have the power to choose his assistants but I'm also on board with Tocchet joining the coaching staff - just not as a head coach.

    Any head coach worth a grain of salt is going to want to work with/select his own people. I just hope Rutherford and the ownership group is ready to get a "yes man" for a head coach instead of a quality coach because thats what they will end up with. How bad is it that a Coach with ZERO NHL experience turns them down due to this stipulation.

    I guess it's looks bad but at this point I don't even care. Anyone is better than what Disco, Granato and Reirden did the past few years in playoffs. Change is good. There's plenty of solid candidates out there, just get one. Not like Desjardins is some slam dunk top quality choice that would have come with guaranteed success. He's 57 years old with no past experience as a head coach in NHL. Good candidate but not someone to cry over for losing him.

    I will say this that this summer was just bad timing for Penguins to change GM and coach. There were no great candidates available. They should have changed coach last summer but Shero had to put his job on the line to keep Bylsma. ****. There were better options available then. This year was just bad timing. Laviolette would have been great choice but he already signed with Preds while the Pens were still playing unfortunately. JR wasn't exactly the best option for GM but he'll have to do. Whoever is the new coach would in any case have been similar hire.
