I'm not surprised that some of these tight budgeted teams are looking for an inexperienced coach to save some dollars. For these teams, Boucher is a prime candidate to talk to at least.

I've been reading in here that the habs cannot get any compensation for losing Boucher, but I need a direct source for that because what is the point of signing a contract if teams can just pick him out for free?

I would estimate that an nhl coach survives for about 3 seasons, so if they can keep Guy happy for a couple more seasons, he should get a shot with the habs.

The habs hiring Pierre Gauthier full time really put a wrench in what I thought was the ultimate plan though which was to move Martin to the GM position and promote Boucher to be the coach. In any case, I really hope they have a long term plan with Guy, and that they have been in communication with him about it. This is our best bet at retaining his services.
