Ottawa assistant coach Roger Nielson is going behind the bench as the head man for 2 games so he could reach 1,000 games as a head coach.

Now I know that the flyers totally screwed him a while back (he was coach, had to leave because he had cancer and then Flyers started winning and he came back without a job). But having a sympothy 2 games to reach a thousand really a legit way of doing it?

Your opinions on this, in the media it's pretty one sided and saying this is great but do feel it takes away from the milestone achivement?

Well, he did win 998 other games legitimately. So adding two more onto the end doesn't bother me at all.

maybe he can prevent them from losing in the 1st round again.

It's the classiest move any sports team has made in some time.

By no means does it take away from the accomplishment of becoming the ninth coach to be behind the bench for 1000 games. There will be no asterisk beside his name...

Not only is the media in agreement, but the players are, too. He's a class guy and this is a class act.

*Please ignore the fact that I lived in Ottawa for 4 years and still cheer for the Senators...wow, can't believe I admitted that.*



Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"

I have no problem with this at all. He won 998 games and wasn't given a chance to get his two wins when he couldn't reclaim the head coaching position. Why not give him the oppurtunity to do this?

I too think that this is a classy move and one that definitely needed to be done.

If Roger Neilson had WON 1,000 games than he wouldn't need a two game stunt/stint behind the bench - after last night he had COACHED 999 games - when the season finishes he will be only the 9th man to COACH 1,000 games

I have no problem with it at all - he has been an assistant coach for the Sens this year and I think the Sens are showing some class in letting him get to his milestone - he would have been there already if it wasn't for Messier's non-endorsement in NY (watch out Ron Low) and Booby Clarke's spineless maneuverings

now back to that non-endorsement, it did open the door for Mike Keenan and that great night of June 13, 1994

Even as a Flyer fan who doesn't particularly adore Roenick, that was truly a devastating to have happen. A had a knee plow into my face during a soccer game in 1996, shattering my cheekbone in the process. It was not a fun experience.
