You forgot to mention that Julien was Lol'ing all game long; he must have felt like kasparov playing against a chess newb and that Boston players seemed like they took the night off, and still won.

I think the whole firing of Martin is just a big fat mess
I wonder though what's with the firing of coaches on game days

You could very well be right, but I don't think he's cheap. Next year, while Martin is still on the books, a new contract will be made for the head coaching job (Randy or someone else).

Maybe he just wants the dust to settle and bring in the men he wants afterwards. This makes sense to me. No way of knowing who that is, so I don't want to speculate on the quality of his level of recruitment.

Why hire a big name coach when chances are high that a new big name GM will be brought over?

I predict a GM will be named, and then a coach will be named shortly after.

As for the fact that he's spending an extra 2 million just to get rid of our coach makes me a little bit more optimistic about the possibility of burying Gomez next year... To me, it's a good sign for this.

As for the letter he wrote today, grant it, I read it once .. but my interpretation of it is that if Randy is a keeper (if the season turns around), he's going to have no choice but to take french lessons this summer. That's what I read between the lines. I'm sure Randy is conscious of this. He didn't say '' Randy is gone after this season because he doesn't speak french''.

But in any event, it looks like this season will be done sooner rather than later, Randy won't be back because, well, of results beyond his control.

Gauthier and Randy will be given the door roughly all at once.

Woa exactly how i feel, and sort of what i posted in another thread, though more filled with emotions then this and less fluid.

Unfortunatly, i think most people will, and Molson is probably hopping for this, blame PG for the mess we are in right now.

Saddest part is you came here to post this stupid post when we are incredibly banged up. Must have been the worst game they played since the last 2 meetings they met us is it?

I don't trust Gauthier , he will get fleeced ,or at best make a wish wash move that really won't help.
at this point, i dont think Molson gives him any rope to make big moves. Well I hope no but my feeling is he doesnt think PG is his guy

I apologize for the post, I didn't mean to be disrespectful but I'm being completely honest. The absolute ridiculous suspension on Lucic might have something to do with it though.

It's like giving someone a suspension for breathing on Briere, after Briere admits he took a dive and the hit was clean.

No he does not obviously. But his actions might affect the whole team. Might affect Georges and Price signings? Might affect players confidence because they fear of being traded?
He should of done it during the the off season or next one. He's creating quite the mess because "pg is not his guy".
i'm so fumed.

Wow - not since the Reggie Houle days has this organization looked so dis-organized. How can the GM still have his job?
WoW its kind of a train wreck...yet I can't look away. We are the new version of the old Leafs, pack the seats with no results.

As soon as Molson took over there was a change in the Bell Center. I know because Ive gone to 95% of the games since the lockout. The "entertainment" at the Bell Center isnt the same. Its so blah now. Example: they stopped announcing the attendance when Molson came in, seems pointless but it got the crowd fired up whenever they did. A bunch of little things like that. The music is just awful now.

They lost/fired the 2 people who put the Habs on another stratosphere in Boivin and Lalonde. Then again, Molson surrounded himself with what must be the three most boring people you can find with Gainey, JM and PG. Honestly, what do you expect. Imagine these three guys at a party? let alone organizing your party. Molson is too passive, I like pro active CEOS a la Steve Jobs despite him being the biggest *******. You cant run this team like you did in the 70s or 80s, **** moves quick these days and you need to leap frog the competition.

Not quite... we still have our 1st rounder.

Except... maybe Gauthier will trade it to save his job (bring in scoring help or something)

Teams go through cycles, and this is probably our turn to go through a terrible and melancholic season and draft high. It was inevitable and I don't think it's irrational to hope for the highest possible pick any longer; it will be better for us in the long run.

I haven't watched hockey in a few weeks. This team is disappointing. I actually can't believe this team right now.

Best bet now is for Yakupov.

Keep the losing streak on!

I still believe! Guys, no matter what happens, we are only losers if we act like it. We are down right now, but we don't have to be down. We only make our rivals happier. No matter what happens on the ice, don't let them beat you.

This is how I feel right now. I just can't see the team turning it around. I don't understand why they fired Martin now. Or at least, I don't get why they replaced him with Cunneyworth. I have very little confidence in this coaching team. They barely have any NHL coaching experience and they are put in a really ****** situation. I don't understand why PG would put them in such a situation.

As for those saying PG will pick a new coach at the end of the season, I say this: at this point, I really hope he's not the GM in place when the new coach is appointed. He deserves to lose his job if the Canadiens don't turn their season around, and I'd rather they clean the whole house to start the next season. I don't wish for anyone to lose their job, but a fresh start would be nice.

Lucy deserved the game, because he was warned. The Habs played to their ability, we need to give the new coach a full on practice with the team. Maybe we lost because Boston is that good. They destroyed Philly 6-0 the other day.
