Why do we suddenly need something different when Boucher was perfect? The perfect model to developing these young guys.
Because Boucher was unique and there are no others like him in the Q right now. Sometimes, the explanation is simple and right in your face.

Therrien got hired because of Mario? Ya right

And Julien? Vignault?

Good french hockey minds will get hired no matter what if they are GOOD.
