    To be honest, I thought Trotz was going to win it. But Bylsma was definitely a close second for me.

    I'm a bit of a Philly fan, but what's up with them getting rid of both Carter and Richards? I thought Philly looked great during the regular season, with some choking at the tail end. I won't even mention their playoff performance. I'm fairly sure Bryzgalov would have fixed their goaltending situation, at least moderately.

    Also, Corey Perry: most awkward individual in videos ever?

    Honestly Trotz and Vigneault both had great seasons, but Bylsma lead what was basically an AHL team to the NHL playoffs and only didn't win the division because of tie breaker stats. Six of the Pens starting forwards were AHL callups for a large percentage of the season, along with injuries to 3 of the starting six defensemen on and off. Crosby, Malkin, and Staal each missed half a season each, with Malkin and Crosby both being out the last half of the season. To me that made Bylsma a clear win, as dealing with massive adversity and being successful is more impressive than having a good (or great) season coaching a team :2c:

    On the Philly deal I think Richards was gone because of attitude, not sure about Carter. Definitely a major change there.

    And :rofl: at Perry

    They've been talking about the Philly moves here in Boston.
    Apparently there may have been some behind the scenes shenanigans going on with players and other players wives. :eek:
    I think Richards is a big loss, Carter?? maybe.
    Getting Bryzgalov was a great move , I can't believe Phoenix let him go.
    Bylsma definitely deserved to win it this year, he did an amazing job with a desimated group of players.

    Jagr??? do you guys really want theat mess of an ego. the last couple of seasons in NY he really was a shell of his old self.
    for the money he wants I'd pass. there are some great prospects coming up in the draft.

    That "shadow" had 75 points his last season :rofl: The ego does concern me, but it sounds like he's got that in check. Shero has said he'd only pay $1 million, so if Jagr will take that I'd gladly see him in a Pens uniform. Hell I wouldn't be upset for twice that if he performs :2c:

    oh I have no doubt that he "can" still perform.
    but will he? Watching that last season with the Rangers was sometimes painful.
    shit I wouldn't mind seeing him in a Boston uniform if he's going to
    actually go out and work.

    Found something interesting, it's an official tally Mike Gillis put together of all the injuries the Canucks sustained during the playoffs:

    Pretty big list. Knowing that, it's not terribly surprising that they couldn't pull the trigger when it mattered most because they were playing with a shit-ton of injuries against the single team in the NHL most suited to take advantage of the fact. I'm proud of the boys.

    Jesus.. Good luck to Raymond getting back on his game. Some players never play the same after an injury like that. I truly hope he can match the speed he had before the injury.

    From David Pagnotta of TheFourthPeriod, posted yesterday:

    It's interesting how the Habs and Pens have, as the weeks wore on, gone from "not interested", to having "no comment", to having made an offer :lol:

    I like to think he'll end up here, as he loves the city, and has apparently been seen training with his good friend and fellow native of Kladno, Czech Republic, Tomas Plekanec here in Montreal a few times, but I can't help but feel he'll be playing in Pittsburgh. The decision is reportedly going to be made today, but he can't officially sign until Friday.

    I'm also hearing that Gomez may be on his way out of Montreal.

    The Pens didn't really say they weren't interested, just that at the time Jagr started talking about coming back here they hadn't thought about it... Apparently they then started thinking about it :rofl:

    Given the history it would be nice to see him end his career here, and as he proved at the worlds he still has skill, so I'd love to see what he could do alongside Crosby or Malkin :2c:

    Via David Pagnotta's twitter 55 minutes ago

    I wonder if his decision will only be announced once he officially signs a contract on Friday.

    Yeah who knows... it's also possible the league contacted his agent and bitched him out since he can't sign until Friday :lol:

    According to agent Petr Svoboda, Jaromir Jagr has gone missing. He was supposed to arrive in NY at around 3:30 this afternoon, but he didn't, and now his whereabouts are unknown and he can't be contacted :rofl:

    His flight stopped in Monte Carlo and he got sidetracked in a casino :flame:

    New article says his agent is meeting with the Pens and calling the Wings and Habs today... which sounds like he's either signing with the Pens or going in person to ask for more money to match another offer :lol:
