Good grief! You said that as a joke right? I don't want the Penguins to turn into the Leafs...I hate them & Quinn!
As far as CP being officially gone, 'officially'
is the pivotal word, 'cuz the CP we knew & respected has been gone for a few years now. This is a man who no-one could have found anything to criticize 10 years ago. His last 6 however, almost wiped out those earlier incomparable years.
Greg, his brother & I sat with him & Steve McKenna in Jay's sports bar at Southpointe one year & he was a very friendly, soft spoken man. I told him I thought he should be more forthcoming with the fans tho' & he said he never liked to tip his hand. I told him that the fans laid money across his palm & he should learn how to tip his hand a bit more. He was a good enough guy to laugh hard at that.
He has lost what made him a respected GM years back. Maybe that's just too long with the Pens, or maybe he's lost the ability to do a good job any longer. Whatever it is, I am happy he's moving on & I'm excited to see what can be done by someone else without any interference from Mario.
