Michael Therrien - returning

Ken Sawyer, Penguins President, announced that Michael Therrien would return for next season, regardless of who the new GM will be.

This is probably a good thing for the team. They were building some consistency and chemistry as the season wound down. What remains to be seen is how veteran free agents will react in terms of coming to Pittsburgh to play, and how the Pens present veteran players (like Leclair and Gonchar) will take to a full season of the taskmaster.

I think it's a good thing to build a young team with a structured system - look at what Kevin Constantine was able to accomplish with the Pens back in the late 90s.
