In Rick Tocchet’s replacement, there’s a bit of role reversal. After the 1991 cup, the Pens traded Mark Recchi to the Flyers in a deal that brought Tocchet to Pittsburgh.
Now, Tocchet leaves, and Recchi replaces him on the bench, “It’s obviously a new challenge, but something, you know something I’m excited about, and it’s definitely you know, I think being around Sully a lot, being around the organization, it’s gonna be a seamless, a seamless fit, and hopefully I can come in there and just do a real good job.”
