The Recchin’ Ball
Mark Recchi may have been cut by the Penguins yesterday but it figures his career (and what a career it’s been) isn’t over yet.
Regardless of what happens with this latest mess, I don’t think he’s going to fade away, sail into the sunset a la Brett Hull and quit midseason. For one, I highly doubt Recchi thinks he’s anywhere near done. A lot of what’s gone on with the Penguins has to do with his rocky relationship with coach Michel Therrien, someone who has a history of difficult dealings with players at this level.
