This is another what have you done for me lately except it's the opposite of what it normally is. He wasn't great in Boston but he managed to pull his team together in the playoffs, during the season I remember seeing a lot of fans who were upset with his decisions.
Yea, I think that if they bowed out to Montreal he might have been looking for a job right now. At the very least he'd be touch and go at the beginning of this season.

However, since they didn't get any terrible bounces against them in that OT and now that he's won the cup, I can't see him getting fired before next off-season, even if Boston blows up and completely misses the playoffs.
