He has family in SJ apparently. So at least that makes more sense.

TG:

Stubbs reported that Robinson also spoke with Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman about a job, but is long-time friends with Sharks GM Doug Wilson.

Is there any vacant coaching spots left in the NHL? Besides it is not uncommon for head coaches to take assistant coaching jobs...

How many head coaches with 600+ wins take assistant jobs?

Disappointing, but Larry did this for family reasons I think. His grandkids live out there. I wish him all the luck and happiness in the world. Absolutely love Larry. Personifies class.

THANK YOU LARRY! He's been here forever and stuck around through some tough times.

Color me shocked if the replacement is not Tommy Albelin or Scott Stevens.

Apparently, he has family (grandchildren etc) that live in that area of California + he's got a good relationship with Doug Wilson.

We have good coaches and now Pete can get a chance to put his own spin on things even more. We will survive without Larry, as good as he has been to us.

I hope Lou gives Scott Stevens a crack at it, assuming he wants the job.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Honestly, I thought if Larry ever left it would be retirement or Montreal (that I could handle)

but the Sharks? Really?

Hire Haviland, bring in Albelin or Stevens to coach the D...still a pretty solid staff I'd think.

He was skating with his grandkids after practice when the team was practicing in LA for the SCF. They seem to be between 5-8 years old.

He's done SO much for us - he's earned the right to be a Grandpapa the way he sees fit.

Is some disrespectful, spiteful, selfish loser here going to piss on his NJ memorabilia now and post pictures? :rolleyes:

This. It made sense for Oates to go elsewhere because he wanted to make a step forward and get a head coaching position. But Larry isn't looking to change his position, it also seems he gets along with Lou very well, so I'm surprised he left to do the same for other team.
