Even if the Habs were to faulter next year, I would seriously doubt he would get canned after one bad year. That pushes this to 3 years now. If Boucher isn't hired this year and continues to be successful (which he should) then I highly doubt he'll be around the following year. If the Habs were to make him an Assistant coach next year as preparation for the big job once Martin's contract is over or he gets promoted then maybe he'll stay as the only job he REALLY wants is to coach the Habs and he's perfectly positioned to do that now.
If he does get hired this year, I don't see that as a bad thing either. He can get some coaching experience and come back once Martin is no longer the coach here.
My personal opinion is that he wants the Habs job and could be willing to stay if they show him that he is the heir apparent after Martin, if and when he is replaced.
Even if the Molson are cheap, they would be willing to pay Carbo and Martin a total of 3 millions if it's to make the playoffs and make millions of profits.
On the top of my head, we fire Martin, hire Boucher and still pay a million bucks to Carbo. We make the playoffs...BANG, 10 millions of profits because of it.
10 - 3 = 7 millions of profits
Now, I'm not saying it will happen, but even if they are cheap, they won't let the team miss the playoffs for long...
