Goodbye Michael Therrien

Michel Therrien

After taking the Pens to the Cup Finals last year, coach Michel Therrien has been sacked because of the current state of the team.  While it’s easier to remove the coach instead of the players, the motivation and leadership was just not there.  Therrien pushed a lot of correct buttons during his tenure, but lately, everything he tried failed.  I think that it was time to make a move and get some new blood behind the bench, and hopefully new head coach Dan Bylsma, who coached a lot of the younger players down with the Baby Pens, can do the job of getting the most out of the talent currently on the team.  In the end, we bid a fond farewell to Coach Therrien with a look back at how his tenure with the team began:
