Penguins Fire Johnston

Crosby 75th in the league in scoring.

Kessel is a complete bust. I'd say he's a "cancer" in the locker room but that would be insensitive to his remaining testicle.  :rimshot

Have Kessel on my fantasy team. There was a reason he was pcked last at the All Star Game a few years back.

I haven't heard anything bad about Kessel. This firing has been imminent since early in the season. I think the way Johnston has handled Sprong was the final straw. Rutherford was pissed that Sprong rarely saw the ice.

Maybe you should check Kessel's stats. You haven't heard anything about him because he's not doing anything.

I'm not talking about his play. I'm talking about him being a "cancer."

His MO among coaches is that he's uncoachable and a wet blanket.

I know. That's why the Pens were able to get him relatively cheap. Anyway, haven't heard anything like that coming out of the Pens room. Hopefully, that stays the same with Sullivan on the bench.

Believe me the media here was all over Kessel for not being more vocal in the Leafs room. He may just be a super laid back guy but the word was it was seen as a negative influence on the younger players when a veteran like him didn't seem upset when they lost.

I don't know what the fvck Bowman was thinking, trading Daley for Scuds. Hawks got fleeced here, we don't need the Pens excess baggage.  >:(
