You're a classy guy.
Like it or not, AK's value is not very high right now. Not sure we can get indeed more than a 3rd rounder.

Coach, I'm hoping Robinson.
As for the GM, I'm not overly interested in Julien Brisebois. I think we really have to lure Jim Nill here.

We need to surround ourselves with winners at the managerial level. Guys that have won or at the very least came real close to it as managers, preferably in the post-lockout days.
Larry is too much of a good guy to be a head coach. Especially in that situation, we need a freakin lion to put the team back toward a conquering attitude.

Guys with like Pat Burns don't run every street corners. He was unique. But Therrien has that fire, that no bull take charge attitude.

If history tells us anything, it tells us that the days of the tyrant coach are done.
That style just is no longer winning in the NHL.

Tortorella has changed from his old hard nosed destroy my players mentality. Like any good coach, he learned from his mistakes. He's a lot more patient with his players.

The coach doesn't have to be like Tortorella to be successful. We just need someone that will inspire respect (which is obvious Martin and Cunneyworth doesn't have right now). When you believe in the coach, you believe in the system and unless the system is crappy, anything is possible then (see the Lightning last year in exemple).

Tortorello and Hitchoch says otherwise. Players are too pampered these days. They need strong leaders. And when I played I loved playing for coachs like these, guys that knew where to go, guys that took no crap for anybody. That's the sort of kind of guy i'll follow to dead. Not a cold fish like Jaques Martin/Randy Cunneyworh.

You haven't watched much Rangers games this year, haven't you? The guy is one their faces if they play ONE shift badly.

Hitchcock, no longer the fire breather. He has had a big change.

Tortorella, he is not JUST a yeller. He brings a lot to the game, including many more years of experience, as an assistant in Buffalo, and as a head coach.

these guys are pure leaders, you know they are captain of the ship. and sometime you need a iron grip. I don't seen any indications that they've changed and that's a good thing. Also Burns was not just a yeller, the point was he commanded respect.

Well, it is obvious that you believe that is what the Habs need, a disciplinarian.

If shows like 24/7 have shown us anything, it is that it takes a more conversational style is what works with players these days.

Anybody watched these morons on AC tonight???
Bergy, the dumbest of all, kept saying that DD saved the Habs season.
Actually, they might all be even dumber because they all agreed, and also added Cole.

Don't they know that the Habs are dead LAST in the East? 3rd worst in the NHL???

What ''saving'' are they talking about?? :biglaugh;
Jesus these guys never cease to amazes me. Unfortunately, it's always for the wrong reasons.

I've stopped watching that show a looooooong time ago. I can't stand any of the reporter at RDS. They're so dumb. Gaston saying the he would "pete une coche en ondes" if Markov was to play in the WC. What the **** does it matter? I would of understood if he didn't come back this season. Now, it gives him more ice time to get his game shape and thinking back on. Plus, it's good for his moral. And, probably the most important of all, he if he was to get injured again, it's "good news" because if he gets injured in the WC, he would injured himself again playing in the NHL, that's for sure, and they have time to get another top4 for next season instead of having a ****** d-squad like this year.

They really don't know anything.
Bergy said Markov is playing on one leg, that he should take the summer off and then come back next year. I don't think he understands that Markov is healthy, that no matter if it is now, or next year, he will need time to get back into the good solid Markov we all loved. It's not gonna happen over a week.

The only point they raised I might agree with is that I'm not convinced Russia would invite Markov. If he improves, then perhaps, but it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't.

Every time I think of that farce, I can't shake the image of that oscar nominee Laviolette trying to get a gatorade contract by mentioning the letter G on average 6 times/sentence when talking to Giroux.

We get it, his nickname is G and you're "hip" and you use it.

Remember when he was basically sucking him off in that practice just before the game where he made the comeback telling him how awesome he was?

G!!!!!!

IMO Totarella was far more authentic and actually wasn't that much of a hard-nosed *****. Right balance.
