Great Mathias Brunet Article on Guy Boucher

http://www.cyberpresse.ca/sports/hoc...as-changer.php

recommended reading for the morning. some highlights...

Quote:
Boucher a beaucoup aimé ce qu'il a vu au camp de développement. «La quantité de bons jeunes joueurs m'a impressionné. Et on a beaucoup de différents types de joueurs avec lesquels travailler.»

Qui sont les joueurs qui ont retenu son attention? «C'est une question difficile à répondre parce qu'il y en a trop et je ne veux pas exclure les autres. Il y en a vraiment trop. Je sais que ça fait politicien, mais c'est ainsi.

«P.K. Subban a impressionné tout le monde. Il a tous les atouts pour réussir. Il a une excellente vision du jeu, de l'enthousiasme, tous les attributs physiques, il ne lui manque que la maturité. Dany Kristo m'a impressionné bien que je savais ce qu'il était en mesure de faire. Parmi ceux que j'ai découverts, il y a ce défenseur repêché en première ronde, (David) Fischer. Non seulement il a une bonne stature, mais de très belles habiletés. Une équipe recherche toujours des défenseurs costauds et mobiles.»
I really like this hiring, Boucher sounds like a really smart guy and a great coach. Can't wait to see what he can do with our prospects.

Guy Boucher began semi-officially the job, yesterday, with Bulldogs of Hamilton.

The former trainer of the Acrobats of Drummondville, of the League major junior of Quebec, on the occasion to share his knowledge with the members of the direction of the Canadian during the camp of development of the organization, at the beginning of July, but it is in end of the afternoon, yesterday, that it received for the first time his two associated, Martin Raymond and Daniel Lacroix, in his new offices of Copps Coliseum.

“One will start to speak about the allocation of the functions. I like to place people who surround me in situations where they excel. It is what we will decide between. We also will delay we with the configuration of the cloakroom and the offices. Each new trainer arrives with his philosophy. He can stick photographs on the walls, write sentence-keys, put his signature finally.”

To stop and its two assistant should inherit a competitive club. The center Ben Maxwell, which finished with the second rank of the meters of Bulldogs last year at its first year in the pros, on an equal footing with David Desharnais, who also remains him in the organization. Brock Trotter, Ryan White and Mike Glumac are of return. The veteran Mathieu Darche arrives.

With defense, P.K. Subban, Yannick Weber and Mathieu Carle could live Hamilton at the beginning of season if there are no wounds at the Canadian. André Benoit is of return with the team. Cédrick Desjardins will fight with Curtis Sanford for the post of guard number 1. The Inhabitants of Quebec Olivier Fortier and Dany Massé will start their professional path with the attack. Who knows if max Pacioretty or Sergei Kostitsyn will not pass by Hamilton?

But there is nothing more dubious than a formation American League. Will there be wounds at the Canadian? Will young people surprise? To stop and its assistants will thus wait before seeking the good combinations of trio.

“I interviewed each hope during 45 minutes with the camp of development and the first thing that I mentioned to them, it is that I did not want to see them in Hamilton. And it is sincere. One wishes them to remain in Montreal. There is a list of names among the possibilities, but one cannot have idea before the end of the camp I do not want to thus begin trios, I want that they believe me sincere when I say to them that I want to see them in the National league.”

To stop liked much what he saw with the camp of development. “The quantity of good young people players impressed me. And there is many various types of players with whom to work.”

Who are the players who held his attention? “It is a question difficult to answer because there is of it too much and I do not want to exclude the others. There is of it really too much. I know that made politicking, but it is thus.

“P.K. Subban impressed everyone. It has all the assets to succeed. It an excellent vision of the play, enthusiasm, all the physical attributes, it has misses only maturity. Dany Kristo impressed me although I knew what it was able to make. Among those which I discovered, there is this defender fished out in first round, (David) Fischer. Not only it has a good stature, but of very beautiful skills. A team always seeks defenders strapping men and mobiles.”

Surrounded strong people

In addition, Boucher is happy to be able to count on Martin Raymond and Daniel Lacroix. He played besides with Raymond at the McGill University. This one then directed this team during about fifteen years. Both are always remained close.

“Martin also has a control in sporting psychology to him. I know who it am, I know his values. It is a baited worker, he lives in his office. It is a very intelligent guy. He has many ideas. I wanted a trainer as a chief around me. I like to be surrounded strong people, not of suiveux. I want to be made defy, that the ideas rain.”

Lacroix was trainer-assistant with Islanders of New York these three last years. “I wanted an assistant coming from professional environment. DaN played in the American League, in particular in Hamilton, and in the National league. It comes from coacher three years in the National league as specialist with the defenders.”

To stop affirms that he will be the same trainer as in Drummondville. “I was made say by trainers in the National league not to change. Several discover several years later which they should have acted as they did it before. I was engaged with my values and my way of doing, it would be an error to change.”

It's interesting... especially since it's still summer time and some of us are craving for more hockey news... but to call this a "great" article is quite a stretch... Gee, the quality standards have come down so low in recent years... If you just report facts you are now a "great" reporter...

Mathias Brunet is still in a "rehabilitation" mode after several cheap shot sensationalist stories about the Habs...

I'd rather read some stuff from Mathias Brunet than Reggie Tremblay or Michel Blanchard.

Glad to hear good news from Fischer. I tough he was done as a future NHLer, but maybe he will come out late... Being patient 'ala' Detroit Red Wings could be the way to go with that guy.

Like what? Can we see some links or quotes. Mathias Brunet is the complete oposite of cheap shot and sensationalism.

Yikes 25th! How old are you? Brunet got burned very early in his career and, in more recent history, he was part of the whole Kovalev-dissing-Carbonneau-in-Russian-Media fiasco.

And here is another controversy from 2007- the Daniel Briere fiasco...

http://www.radio-canada.ca/sports/ho...n-briere.shtml

I'm sorry but Pierre Boivin appears to me like a honest and pretty calm fellow... He was mad about this, accusing La Presse (and Brunet) of telling lies. Your call- you believe Boivin or you believe La Presse. I'm assuming that you will trust La Presse first, following Rejean Tremblay's beliefs that the Habs organization is like the mafia?

He sounds like he will be great for the Bulldogs and our young prospects.

"A team always seeks defenders strapping men and mobiles." Good to hear about Fischer, I think...

IMO, Brunet only reported what was published in the russian paper on the Kovalev-Carbo thing.

As for Brière, I woul like to read the article and not base my opinion on what Boivin said.

Now when you put Brunet ang Réjean Trembley in the same bag cause they work for the same paper, you make me whant to puke.

I've been reading and contributing to Mathias Brunet blog si pretty much de beginning and I can assure you that he is not the terrible journalist you seem to think he is.

As for RT, Ronald King, Michel Blanchard and François Gagnon, I really dont like there agenda. For them, it's always "more Québécois" this" and "Not enough francophone that". SO no, I dont trust La Presse more than anything else. Well, more than JdeMtl for sure but you know what I mean.

I would not be surprised to see Gainey move upstairs as the Vice President and see Martin move in as GM, Martin probably was promised as much since he left that post in Florida. Boucher maybe being groomed to be the next Coach for the Habs.

I hope that when Gainey leave the position, Timmins will be consider to take over.

I don't know about that, I remember Andre Savard being a pretty good head scout, then he went for the GM job and sucked big time. Not saying that Timmins would suck too, but if he wants to stay there, I just hope they offer him the best contract possible.

And what RE-HABS said is very logical, IMO that would be the ideal scenario...
