a quick update

I am still on vacation this week, with so-so internet access....but this came through today:

Waddell said he has no timetable for a hiring and indicated he may look for a coach who is less intense than Hartley.

"Maybe we've got to back off a little bit and let the players have some fun in the game," Waddell said.

"Certainly Bob has been here a long time. ... We weren't getting the most, particularly out of our veteran players, and that was a concern," he said.

Ouch. On the other hand, I cant wait to see Waddell behind the bench. I love seeing any GM try to put the coaching hat on, it always produces some pretty comical moments.

I'm back this weekend -- just in time for the Pens game -- so I'll have more then.
