Groulx was not retained with his contract being up with now Therrien being in place...I'd be shocked if the new coach ends up someone that worked with Therrien in the past.
In most circumstances I would agree, however in these cases the goaltending coach was let go/not extended when Price was struggling. This is a performance issue first and foremost , if Price has a great season or puts his team where Quick/Rask have put their teams Groulx is extended.
