CBC Hotstove - Guy Boucher

Well according to Pierre Lebrun, Boucher is a candidate in Tampa for the new job, and Elliott Friedman is saying Boucher is the top candidate in Columbus.

Montreal may need to make a move fast to get Guy in Montreal, before we see him elsewhere.

Bring Guy as assistant next year and promise him the job in the next 2 years. We can't lose this guy.

Friedman totally touched on Boucher's ability on knowing how to get the most out of his players and on how to help them. These young teams see this, and want this...we can't lose this!

I really can't see Montreal giving other teams permission to these other teams. Not that I'd ever want to take that chance lol.

in pro sports, nobody stands in the way of coaching promotions, it just doesn't happen. habs may demand compensation but if another team comes calling habs will give permission..unless the idiots in upper management promote him or promise him the job is his soon

I don't think you can give compensation for the rights to talk to coaches anymore. And teams have gotten in the way before.

Don't let Ozymandias read this thread. He gets super defensive if anyone mentions the possibility of Boucher taking a job with another NHL team.

I seriously hope we don't lose him though. I'd take him over Martin right now.

I know, but they changed the rules when they re-did the CBA, you can't give compensation for coaches anymore. I think it was because two teams had some sort of a feud.. can't remember exactly.

So, on Thursday we go from "Mr. Inside Connections" Team 990's Tony Marinaro saying there's no way anyone would want Guy Boucher due to lack of experience and the Habs have nothing to worry about to being such a hot commodity. Given the trend in the NHL to hire younger coaches after a year or 2 of success with the younger guys in the AHL (like Bylsma and Clouston) I definitely think the Hotstovers are right. Boucher is an up and comer who can relate to today's modern players. He has proven he can adjust, be flexible and work with a plan and not a rigid "system". As noted on a previous thread the Molson family MUST evaluat every piece of their team from an asset-based perspective - what/who can yield positive returns over the long haul and who cannot. I think we know where Boucher would fit into this. Letting Boucher go would be just like letting contracts lapse on players like Souray, Streit, Komisarek, etc without even get draft picks in return at a trade deadline. In this case, we can't get any compensation if Boucher is given permission to look into jobs with other orgs.

There is no way the Habs can let this Guy go so to speak. Most of this board will sit in a bathtub and cut themselves if this happens. The very fact that the Toronto lovers at CBC would mention anyone coaching in the Habs system speaks volumes about his talent . Because we all know the CBC loves the Canadiens.

If the Habs beat Washington, will people change their tune about Martin?

Glenn Healy said right away that Kevin Dineen should be hired over Boucher, on one note he is a homer and just hates the Habs no mater what...on another, Tampa and Columbus please listed to Healy.

i actually had an email exchange with Tony on this and he said that he thought boucher would remain loyal to the habs giving him this chance and would inevitably be given
the habs job
