Talking Penguins Coach, Rich Nash and The Blues

Katie Strang of ESPN held an online chat today...

Who do you think will be the Penguins next head coach?

Katie Strang  I like the idea of promoting John Hynes from their AHL club. He's been highly touted internally and is regarded as a guy with a good feel for making in-game adjustments. In the wake of Bylsma's axing we have learned that was one of the biggest knocks on him (during the Olympics too). Also think Ulf Samuelsson could be an attractive candidate as well. Has a son in the Pens system as well ...

If Rangers were to trade Rick Nash could they get a 1st round pick in next week draft?

Katie Strang  Yes, he still has that sort of talent and size to command that value despite a very disappointing playoff performance this spring. Remember though, he has a full no-move clause so they can only move him if he consents. And not sure the Rangers have made a decision on what they would like to do with him yet.

With the St. Louis Blues passing on Miller in favor of an Elliot/Allen tandem, what do you think the Blues need to add in the off-season to push over the hump? Is the a top 6 forward the Blues should add to give their team more depth?

Katie Strang  I think it had more to do with money than anything. Blues are facing some financial difficulties from the sounds of it.
