Report: Blue Jackets Extend Offer To Bulldogs' Boucher

Hopefully Lou calls him this week to counter-offer after reading/hearing this bit of news.

Once again, we're sitting around here watching other team making moves and wondering what the heck Lou is doing? Is he doing anything?

GB would be just the type of coach and type of system that might excite guys like Martin and Kovalchuck to make them want to stay and not think that we're stuck in the NHL of the late 90's....

Guy Boucher was never a serious candidate here. And to be honest I wasn't as big of a fan as some on here, so this means little to me other than crossing a name off a list.

I'm really trying to understand whats so great about this system. Do you even know the type of system he runs?

I have my doubts that a 1-3-1 system would even work in the NHL. It may excite the players as you said, but conversely, they could also be thinking "what the hell are we doing?" which would make them turn on the coach just like they did to Claude Julien. I like the idea of an up-tempo, puck possession type coach, but I also would like somebody with more experience that could get the most out of this group of underachievers.

no thanks. No point of getting into a bidding war for Boucher.

how about the moderators take care of the moderating and you just ignore the thread. There's a little "x" to the right of the thread title there for a reason.

Not for nothing but that's the most annoying thing to do in these situations. The longer the thread the more BS to sift through.

Ehhhhhh. For example, I know I can ignore the thread about Carbonneau and read the thread about Boucher, instead of going through a long ass mega thread with a generic title that only tells me "Coaching search".

Message boards used to be called bulletin boards, and that's for good reason: nobody hangs a book on a bulletin board, they post fliers. Quick, easy information.

Repetitive **** (Like one thread with a url, and another two days later with the same url) is in fact moronic, but two threads about different potential coaches isn't the same.

I don't see what the big deal is. We can have 900 off-topic threads, which could be squeezed into a "sports" and "nothing" thread and that's it, but no one has a problem with the way that is.

pardon me while I create "OT: The thread about wild animals"

I remember being yelled at for posting about videogames in the thread about nothing. I was confused, granted it isnt that hard to confuse me, but nevertheless.

They don't. They'll have a system set up like so:

No one will be behind the bench because they're not going to hire a coach. Who will call the shots you ask?

Easy, a hole will be dug behind the bench for a cardboard cutout of stevens' face after mouthing "you're next" and one of Lou's mad faces. When someone makes a boneheaded play, Lou will have a switch in the pressbox that has the cutouts pop up behind the bench when someone comes back after a bad shift.

The cutouts will also do the pressers after. What would you rather have after the worst game I've ever seen Mottau play?

A) JL: I thought Mottau was good with the puck tonight

B) Cutouts staring back
