Sure but he has to be better than a Cup winner who has made the playoffs every year in Boston right?

Man this coach stuff makes me ill. Everyone who has watched a game thinks they can do the job.

Is that why he is coaching the Latvian national team? Or why he hasn't coached since 2008 in the NHL? I suggest you might want to study a little bit about making any sense before you post your argument.

Yes Neely would send a message, "Hey here is a guy who's never coached a game in his life, so we have given up on you and this season completely"

Do you not think for 1 second that Julien has lost the room?

Coaches are hired to get fired.The exceptions are guys like Bowman.

It's possible sure. Definitely not a certainty.

And since we have major issues getting consistent efforts from 2-3 key players who are supposed leaders and our defense lacks skill and mobility, I'd aim to fix those spots before I fired a Cup winner.

Who wouldn't want a coach with 2 Cups in 3 years?

I have to disagree. A loss to the Leafs and he could be out. It's a long shot and shouldn't happen but still a low possible outcome.

Ok.....would you still feel the same if the Bruins lost in 5 or 6?

Not saying it's gonna happen, every series for us under Julien has gone to at least 7. Another first round exit for a second consecutive year is pretty bad though.

I agree, after the end of this year, if he loses in the first round, bonus points for below 7 games, he could be fired.

Unlikely, but that may mean he's lost his grip on his players. Not sure upper management would want to goof around and wait with that. Again, unlikely.

There aren't many coaches who could replace him... Ruff? Boucher...? Sacco??

claude's decisions piss me off but who is out there to replace him? I guarantee they won't be as good as he has been.

I don't know bp, another first round loss would put his job on the line. He either gets fired or gets the 15 game tryout next season.

The issue is we don't know what's going on behind the scenes. Maybe Hamilton is hurt and they don't want it out there, maybe certain players don't like each-other and he isn't willing to put them on a line. It's easy to say what should be done with no view of what happens in the dressing room.

Exactly! There are short memories on this board at times. I say give Claude, regardless of this stupid season with a goofy schedule, a chance next year. If in January its not better, than you pull the plug. That being said, Chia needs to bring in more than just a player. Needs to shake it up before his 'core love' drops off completely.

The players are tuning him out, you can't get rid of the players, so he has to go. Need some new blood in the locker room. Love to see Neely sitting behind the bench even though i realize that's unlikely

I can't believe we lost again tonight. And last night was another frustrating loss. I don't know what to expect from this team in the playoffs. Bummed out.

That was the closest series ever. Even a tad closer than the Habs series when they went on to win the Cup.

Claude wasn't fired after up 3-0 games to the Flyers, losing 4 straight, up 3-0 in game 7! Then he wins a Cup.

If Claude gets fired it will be for some damn good reasons.

Really starting to think the only reason we won the cup was because Cam called out Claude in the middle of that season with this gem:

http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/nhl...mes&id=5928543
Quote:
"Goals against isn't an issue; goals for is an issue." Neely said. "The power play is an issue. ... I think the name of the game is you still have to score one more goal than [the other team]. It's not about trying to win zero-zero."
the team was noticeably less conservative that year than the prior year when they had the collapse against Philly. Over the last season and a half, though, it has felt like Claude has gradually gone back into his comfort zone and he is coaching this team as conservatively as ever. In 2010/2011 I totally get his reasoning for scratching Seguin because Seguin really didn't have a great rookie year. Dougie has been pretty dynamic for the Bruins, though. Obviously not flawless but I really feel like scratching him down the stretch is playing it too safe. Claude has this team playing for the tie again and it is both infuriating and also incredibly un-fun to watch.
