Who needs a prior relationship?

From Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Despite Therrien's 94-51-19 record in his two full seasons with the Penguins, there has long been speculation that Shero would at some point bring in his own coach.

"When the manager doesn't hire the coach, it's easy to say that," Shero said. "But going into our third year together, the results have been there."

Good on Shero for giving Therrien a fair shot from the outset and deciding to keep him for the foreseeable future. The former Habs coach has earned the right to a contract extension.

Ballhype: hype it up!
