Well that's my understanding of Houle's potential. Let just say that I did go often in Blainville this year, and happened to be quite a few times behind the bench. Talked to a lot of people, saw and heard him work a bench, saw what he did with Lewiston, saw what he did with Blainville, he's CLEARLY a guy I don't want the Habs to let go. There are some questions marks with Groulx as far as being a tactician is concerned. And I personnally prefer Houle's approach as a player's coach than Groulx. Again, though, it's not like I'm talking about Bowman versus Bob Berry here. Just that I prefer, for the long run, to see the Habs retaining Houle than Groulx. But would have take those 2 guys with us any day of the week. My ideal trio in Hamilton would have been to see Lefebvre going with Houle and Groulx. Both of whom I have ahead of Tourigny.
