Coach Julien closing in on the Bruins #2 all-time win record

Coach Julien has the chance to record the second most wins of any Bruins coach in history this season. Well done Coach.

Coach Claude Julien is one win shy of tying Don Cherry (231) for third place on the team’s all-time coaching wins list. Art Ross leads the way with 361 wins, with Milt Schmidt next at 245.

if he isn't number two by the end of the season, something horrible will have happened.

thanks AR.

Honestly it wouldnt shock me if he ended up #1 by the time he's done. It's not that far fetched at all.

Agreed. As long as Chiarelli's here, Julien will be too. Great coach.

No offense to Julien, but goes to show how like with Thomas, the Bruins coaching track record has been about at bad as goalies since the expansion era.

I think the question to ask is, is Julien the greatest Bruins coach of all time?

I think if he wins another championship, or the B's have a deep run in the playoffs there probably isn't any question.

greater than Art Ross? In addition to being an awesome coach he was also GM AND the guy who invented the hockey puck and has a trophy named after him.

It definately looks like KF Julian does not want to share any of that grease. Come to think it ... isn't that Blake the off sides Wheeler in that pic , I know he's doing better in that system , but man he could be so painful at times.

It's 361... not 261. Julien need's to win 132 games to be first.

Funny how bad coaching and bad goaltending seem to go hand in hand... it's almost like they're related to one another.

Bruins have averaged about 43 to 44 wins per season under Julien. Impressive. It will take another 3 to 4 seasons to reach Ross, certainly doable considering the way the team is set up for the future. Also he will benefit from the shootout, which his predecessors like Ross and Cherry, didn't have.

do they count that in the calculation, or is it ROWs only?

Hats off to Julien. I always thought he was the type of coach who could make a bad team good but couldn't get them to the promised land. I think he evolved as a coach during his time in Boston. He was a stubbon mule early on and I believe the turning point was when the Bruins fell down 0-2 to Montreal. I think he knew his back was against the wall so he started to experiment a little more. He learned to balance his stubborness (ie keeping Thomas between the pipes when many were calling for Rask) with his ability to adapt to certain situations.
