    Default Gene Ubriaco and Wendell Young

    "What do you do when your AHL team is off to a 1-5 start? If you're the Chicago Wolves, you fire your coaching staff. And here's one for all you Pittsburgh nostaglia buffs. While a search for a new coach is ongoing, Wendell Young and Gene Ubriaco will be running the show. I can't imagine any other AHL team doing something like this so soon. The Wolves really do dance to the beat of a different drummer in this league."

    Wendell Young and Ubriaco are coaching the Wolves. I just thought you might like to see a clip of Warren Young fighting because he is more interesting than boring ole Wendell.

    I always felt like Ubriaco got a bad rap. He replaced the uber ****ty Pierre Creamer if I remember correctly and the Pens in 88-89 finished 2nd and made it to the conference finals before falling to a deeper Flyers team in 7 games. Ubriaco and and the GM at the time (Esposito?) both got ****canned about mid season in 1989. Can argue about the replacements, but I never felt like Ubriaco did anything to be deserved of being fired. That 88-89 Pens got further than anyone expected. ............ wasn't that the year when Mario had his best year and Robbie Brown had over 100 points?
