Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Now, coming off a trip to the Stanley Cup final and with the roster apparently set, it’s time to take care of the coach in a fair and reasonable manner.
Therrien has one year remaining on his deal. The sides are negotiating an extension. He made $675,000 last season, well below the highest-paid NHL coaches, and is slated to make $750,000 this coming season. That still isn’t close to the best-paid men in his profession. Many are way past the $1 million mark….
So, what’s fair for Therrien, who still has worked only three NHL seasons start to finish but has enjoyed tremendous success over his two full years here?
A two-year extension worth around $1 million per season sounds right.
