Brisebois is like a baseball batter who holds the record for both homeruns and strikeouts. Boy, could he throw a blind pass up the middle well.

Agreed. Breezer was an average, overpaid dman on a poor team. That doesn't make him the second coming of Patrick Traverse, or give any real indication about his coaching and scouting capacities.

Okay.

Why are you still here?

On-topic, people are overreacting so badly... It's probably a minor job. And even if it's not, why does everyone assume he'd be a terrible coach?

I like how the org is turning into a joke because they are hiring people YOU don't like.

How about giving the new management/coaching team a few games before saying ridiculous crap like that?

Because it kinda is a joke. When you think defense coach (just assuming he's hired to fill that role) the last guy you think of is Brisebois. He was a turn over machine, not physical whatsoever and a pylon on the ice. He might be a better coach than he was a player (let's hope). But honestly aren't there better choices than him?

We all know what kind of coach Gretzky was. What I'm saying is why not consider hiring an up and coming coach like Gallant for example rather than Brisebois who to my knowledge has zero coaching experience. Love the avatar btw

No, fans on this board are turning into an absolute joke. People continue to diss Therrien for no good reason, diss Carbo as an assistant who did a remarkable job the 1st time and now Brisebois who's a model in team commitment and professionalism. Even though he was soft as hell on the ice the guy doesn't hate the rough stuff, and far from it if you hear what he has to say on "Le Match".

I don't think it's for assistant coach, Therrien has just been hired he wouldn't have time to find his assistants yet...unless they are good friends in life.

That's completely respectable then. People can dislike Brisebois all they want, but no one has any idea what kind of coach he would be. Breezer was not a #1 defenseman like he was paid to be and that's what brings on the hate.

Anyway, as big of fan as I am, I would still not like seeing Brisebois start as an assistant coach in Montreal. If he did, I would support him. But I'd much prefer him to start down in Hamilton and work his way up if he has the coaching talent to do so.

Hawkeye is the best Avenger!

There are some things people say here that would be better than NHL executives. But it's not always as black and white as posters here make things seem.

I'm sure some NHL execs thought Desharnais would never make the NHL let alone become a very good player. I did. I know a few others did.

On the same token, I also thought Mathieu Aubin was going to be good.

He's being criticized because people need a scapegoat and with Gauthier, Cunneyworth and Gainey gone people need something to ***** and complain about...so why not ***** about the possibility of a man few of us know anything about getting hired.
Being a legitimate NHL d-man does not qualify you as a coach.
I also do not know why people keep spewing out him being overpaid. I didn't care back then about it. I didn't like him because he wasn't that good. He took poor decisions defensively, would avoid corners, would get easily pushed around despite his decent size, and I used to go nuts when I constantly saw him purposely let opponents beat him to the puck so he wouldn't get checked. Those were his main faults. Being overpaid is irrelevant.

I don't need a scapegoat, never did.

People here are discussing the possibility of him as an assistant coach. I'm saying he has done absolutely nothing that shows he'd be a good candidate. Being a regular d-man doesn't prove it. He has no coaching experience, and I was already skeptical about Therrien, so I'd be a happier if he surrounded himself with strong hockey men that have proven experience.
Had Brisebois been coaching in the AHL these past couple years, and was somewhat successful, I'd have no problem with the hire. But as you know, that's simply not the case.

The guy as more than enough than many candidates for a Dmen specialist, maybe less an assistant like I said before.

p.s my point with the salary was that it was the starting event for all the hate he received

and 420 pts in 1009 games still stands as a B+ on his NHL career exam
I never said really good players make the best coaches/assistants.
What will make them good is experience, and Brisebois has none. I don't think the starting point for any person serious about coaching should be the NHL.

Being a ''coach'' on a reality TV show is not considered experience.

Geez, you could even hire him now and even use him for advice for this upcoming draft. Assistant coach for Brisebois? Why? Because he was on that TV show against Hartley? There has to be better candidates than this. Seriously.
I feel the same way.
