The Tampa Bay Lightning had conversations with Hall of Famer Larry Robinson about joining Guy Boucher's coaching staff. It would have been an assistant coach position. Instead, Robinson took a coaching position with the San Jose Sharks.
In San Jose, Robinson has the chance to be closer to his daughter and grandchildren, who reside in Redondo Beach, California.
“I felt that this was the right move for me,” Robinson said. “It allows me to not only come here and work with some great people but also to work with an organization I think is going in the right direction, giving me another chance to win another Cup. Also, I felt it was important for me and my family to move a little closer to the grand kids and it allows my wife a little more freedom to do the things she loves to do and that’s to be around the kids.”
Meanwhile for the Lightning, the search for another assistant coach continues. The team has been down an assistant coach since April 2011, when coach Wayne Fleming was diagnosed with brain cancer. General manager Steve Yzerman has told coach Boucher another coach will be added to lighten the work load for coach Boucher and his assistants.
