I can't blame the guy; seriously, who would want to coach these players? Still think an overhaul is needed :evilcry:

Why would the Habs or Sens change coaches?

Well hopefully Lou realizes that the defensive style of play is not working anymore. Maybe a coach will be hired that implements more of a forecheck. We have such a talented group of forwards that should have produced much more.

Knowing Lou, he is doing the opposite of what we think.

I agree. Time to turn the page.

So we need a coach that wants to coach and wants to coach for a long time, someone with the desire to win and win their first cup. Someone with fire and exceptional motivation!

If Pat Burns never got sick, I believe he'd still be our coach today. Burns was awesome!

Someone who has been an assistant for a while after a stellar career as the emotional leader of a team and happens to have the alliterative intials of SS?

No. Burns was a quick fix/results type of coach with a short shelf life everywhere he went. His style yields results in the short term, but does not last long term.

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?

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. Maybe one of his assistants or some other assistant from the WC teams. Don't see or like any of the coaches in the EC. Have a feeling lou is going to pass on MacLean again.

I wouldn't mind promoting from within...if a viable candidate isn't found elsewhere.

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.
