No kidding.

His response to the hiring was "I never heard of him - someone tell me". Not "How is he as a coach".

The latter. This guys' been in the "Hockey" news for years and has been up for NHL jobs just in the past few weeks - forget about his playing days.

So tell me, how is he as a coach. What are his assets. I don't know, so tell me since you do.

Dude, get over it. There's a difference between seriously asking who someone is, and saying "RANDY WHO????" or "Never heard of him". It's just Randy ****ing Cunneyworth and most people here were 10-15 years old back then. I was 14 and I only vaguely remember the name. "Randy who" seems like a pretty normal reaction to me.

Man, this really starts to look like the Ottawa Senators of the '90. It smells country club 200 miles around and I'm not sure I like it that much.

Nothing against any of the individual, but I sure hope what happened 10+ years ago isn't a factor in the decision making process to hire these people. To build a contender, you need competent people, opportunism, but also imagination, and most of all, diversity and a LOT of luck*.

Anyway. My 2 cents.

As for his coaching, his AHL resume looks pretty good.
Those were pretty much my thoughts. I'm only 28 and this site makes me feel ancient sometimes

Well I wasn't directing it at anyone in particular, I'm just pointing out the reality of what someone should expect when they post those kinds of messages on an Internet message board. Maybe people just aren't aware of the vastness of the Internet. Spare the messenger.

So we're hiring an AHL coach with a good resume and experience as an NHLer so he can lend some wisdom to his prospects about the NHL life. Wow, I can see this is clearly the most controversial move the Canadiens could have possibly made.

When will the management will ask to rename the Canadiens to Senators ? From what I know the old Sens management never won any Cup... Next action will be to bring Murray here I guess... LOL. Or Alfredsson will come and be Habs captain !

Well the Canadiens haven't won a cup in 17 years and Tampa wasn't afraid to use our staff.

Boucher is a rookie coach, Brisebois is young and was not with Habs for 17 years. Your point is not valid.

I only think about the Devils who got the old Habs like Lemaire, Robinson as an example and they did succeed with them.

Where we should try to get ppl is at Detroit, oh wait we got Gauthier instead of Yzerman...

It's still a stupid way of justifying why they are bad moves.

Ottawa seemed to have good teams back when these guys were in charge. A good argument would be that none of these people have been successful in the new nhl, but to say that getting them is useless because they haven't won a cup is not a good argument against these signings.

That's Pierre Boivin's fault.

No need to respond, you pretty much proved my point... put me on ignore, please.

Yeah, damn us n00bs. Thank god the l33t hockey experts you are can keep reminding us of our inferiority and that there is a defined threshold of knowledge required to be a worthy hockey fan.



Might haven't seen the sun in the past 10 years, but damn you guys know your AHL staff through and through.

You know, I remember this guy who assembled Canada's first Gold Medal Hockey Team in fifty years, Wayne something or other, then he tried coaching in Phoenix and was horrendous there. It seems assembling a stacked team Canada does not mean you're destined for incredible success in the NHL.

I remember hearing that Buffalo's AHL team was doing so well because of the work of their coach. Wasn't that Cunnyworth?

All these experts on Cunneyworth yet I still haven't recieved a scouting report on his coaching abilities.

I guess it's one thing to know who a player/coach is and provide statistics, but I guess it's another to actually break down a coach's abilities.

Also, no offense nitanny, you want to call people out for stupidity. Well I asked you about the coaches abilities about 40 minutes ago and still haven't gotten an answer. I also noticed that you kept an eye on this thread for about 30 minutes and never provided an answer, I wonder why.

This might get removed by the mods, but it has to be said.
