Man i would be piss off as a Habs fan, but really happy because hes a great guy with great a.i. .

I would be piss so bad about the Habs organisation , who screw this up big time. Was it Gauthier decision to let him walk without trying to keep him? I think its the decision of the president on that one or whoever is on top of him who is able to give Boucher an offer. Nobody budge a finger, and i dont understand why. If it was Gauthier décision, well he was affraid to lose his job, knowing he can be replace by Martin who got replace by Boucher.

M.Molson, you miss the boat on that one big time. You were blinded by that amazing playoff run and tough the men in place are the one who will put us on the right track, and your wrong! Boucher IS a better coach than Martin , and he will prove it big time this season.

My two cents...

and yours?

What were they supposed to offer him exactly? He gets a chance to be Head Coach in a market with no pressure, his choice of assistants and franchise players across the board. Not much gauthier could've done.

Exactly.

Do people really think Gauthier would say "well Jacques, you did lead the team to two improbable playoff victories...but we decided to replace you with a guy who has one year of AHL coaching experience, sorry".

I think they're more than a new coach away from being Cup champs.

okay JM took our team with a huge whole in our top 6, and injury torn all year, and brought them to the ECFs.

If Boucher can get Tampa to the cup finals and win I will be ecstatic for him and I will cheer for Tampa if they win.

I would probably put down my PS3 controller, save my game and go do something else.

I'm suitably impressed. At which point do we see this experience actually benefit the Habs on the ice?

I've made my case with much data and plenty of explanations in the original Boucher-to-Tampa thread. Probably too much, actually. Because that thread was extremely verbose and annoyed a fair number of people, I'm trying to not get into detailed arguments again here.

The responses I've gotten back often involved claiming that he was responsible for things that didn't actually happen (like the Habs "forcing shots to the outside" or "limiting quality scoring chances"). Made arguing pretty useless in hindsight. The ECF finish was fun, but it's blinding a lot of people.

Now his past record is being brought up as proof that he is good. Suffice to say that Martin's pre-lockout track record is of little relevance compared to the way he's actually coaching the Habs, and his reputation as a successful coach this year is largely built on a goalie standing on his head for two series, despite Martin employing the same ineffective system in the playoffs that he used in the regular season. He may have been a good coach in the past, but that doesn't necessarily imply he's good now, and frankly, his tactics are obsolete.

I'm not embarassed, seeing as I've credited Martin for his personnel management and matching up in the past (it's certainly light years ahead of Carbonneau's) and if you look at my posting history you can confirm this.

I understand that this is only a hypothetical question, but the amount of over-hyping that has suddenly appeared over Boucher is starting to become rediculous. The guy might be a good coach, but the reality is that he hasn't coached a single game in the NHL. Now were talking about the guy winning a Stanley Cup in his first year with a non playoff team (albeit a team that has a ton of potential)? He's good, but isn't the coaching prodigy that half the fanbase thinks.

No, but on pure hockey and good-of-the-franchise grounds, he should have.

Unfortunately circumstances being what they are, plus he and Gauthier being tight, they're stuck with him.
