Quick hits for Tuesday, August 5 - Sidney Crosby Q&A, Dan Bylsma WBS coach

Two articles to look at today from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. 

The first comes to us two days late but still holds relevance.  The Trib performed a Q&A session with Sidney Crosby.  Aside from relating to the 21-year-old lifestyle, the interview also touches upon subjects such as Marian Hossa (give it up already), next year's expectations and how a loss in the Finals can motivate a team more than ever.

Our second article today is on the minor league level.  Dan Bylsma, formerly the assistant coach for the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins received a promotion to the head coaching role per the nomination from general manager Ray Shero and assistant general manager Chuck Fletcher. 

This is no doubt a big move in the minors, as both the Pittsburgh and WBS squads made it to the finals in their respective leagues this season.  Unfortunately both lost in the Finals as well, but that's neither here nor there.

Todd Richards, the former head coach of the Baby Penguins will make his time well spent in the NHL this season as an assistant coach for the San Jose Sharks.
