Yes first time in TEN years Lowell made the playoffs. Too bad Lou can't lure away Dave Tippett from Phoenix. this guy Lou should have got instead of Lemaire last season.

It's easy to say that *now*, but don't pretend like you were against Lemaire coming here...

Yay! Glad to see Lemaire back behind the bench.

:whistling:

Carbo?

No.

He got himself fired in Montreal because he lost control, there is no way he comes here.

This doesn't shock me at all. I said at the last game that Lemaire would "retire" or move to "scouting". Lou wasn't going to fire the guy.

It's easy to lose control in a city where the fans will personally come to your house and sh!t on your children if you do something wrong.

He knew that going into the job, he played for the Habs.

If you can't take the heat.....

Or better yet, resting up for the second round.

This is absolutely a move in the right direction. Still need a new coach. And honestly, I wouldn't mind if we had somebody move up in the managerial ranks. Not as a new GM, but as an associate GM who could begin to learn Lou's system. Because if this happens enough times you need to step down and let the reins move on. And I'd rather be prepared for that than ignorant of it.

Lou may let his son Chris take over for him when Lou steps down... Chris already in the org. isnt he?

Such jubilation when I read this headline. Now maybe we can get a coach who will actually have consistent line combinations.

I predict Johnny Mac will get the job.

Lemaire actually retired about two weeks ago.

As for Johnny Mac, didn't he just coach our AHL affiliate into the playoffs for the first time in like a decade or something?

You beat me to it... first time getting a basement AHL team into the playoffs in a decade, with a good number of his star players (and I use star players loosely, but they are that equivalent in the AHL) missing because they were up with the big club. Plus, these are the same players that are the future of the franchise, so he must be onto something. Johnny Mac has just the right amount of fire too... reserved and balanced in the times he needs to be, and ready to rip someone's head off when it needs to get done (just ask torts...)

Right he's the Lowell GM. But I honestly don't know that he's the man for the job. Maybe, but I just don't think so.

Solid no to ChrisLam taking over for Lou based on what I’ve seen in Trenton. Make that “NO!!!!”

wouldnt be surprised to see Tremblay get a crack if not Johnny Mac, but who knows with Lou these days. He'll probably bring back Ftorek or Larry now.

Yep, and it's not much of a job. the team's success this year was based mostly on prospects and players that were signed by Lou. although I guess he did sign Taromina, which means a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile.

Tremblay? He's Lemaire's dumbass flunky. That's worse than Lemaire.

Trembley is one of the nicest guys I've ever met.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was another French Canadian. There are quite a few French Canadians working for the team and the players in this organization.
