I know it will never happen, but if Gallant goes to Florida, the perfect guy to come in would be Guy Boucher. He would definitely help out the power play, and help out some of the younger players as well. I know it wont happen because if would put too much pressure on Therrien, because as soon as the team starts faltering, fans and media would put all the pressure on Bergevin to let go of Therrien and make Boucher head coach. This is just wishful thinking on my part. What do you guys think?

I'd love Oates or Boucher too but I doubt it happens because these guys want head coaching jobs and that might add undue pressure on MT and the coaching staff.

I'd think Lefebvre might be an option from Hamilton which might open a spot for a good coach from the Q to come in and take over the Dogs.

My favorite pick of all would have been Robinson. Still bothers me that he wasn't hired when he asked for a chance at the job. Class, history with the Habs dynasty, multiple championships, respected by all and a great coach.

Did he? Everything I heard was that he does not want to be the HC in SJ. If TMac ever moves on, I'd love for Robinson to become our HC in SJ. He's an awesome coach, and has worked wonders with an otherwise unremarkable defence (aside from Vlasic).

He asked to be the assistant coach but insisted he had no interest in the head coaching job. We hired Daigneault instead...

Ah, so basically a similar situation to what he's doing in SJ, even though he's technically an "associate" coach. I don't think he wants the pressure of a head coaching job, and seeing as how good he's been in his current role, I wouldn't mess with a good thing.

Exactly. He's also been promoted in San Jose to director of player development. A job Martin Lapoint has with the Habs.

If I had my choice of which guy I wanted to help develop my prospects, I'd take Big Bird hands down.

Hell yes, I 100% agree. That said, he's on one of my two favourite teams, so I can't complain.

Gallant did the same job Muller use to do. I like this guy and I hope he gets the job in Florida. Maybe was can bring Kirk back....

If he's in charge of the special teams this might be more good than bad for the Habs.

According to one team source and one NHL source, Gerard Gallant already might be the frontrunner for Panthers head coach.

That's what I was thinking too. Our PP was pretty damned good with Kirk running it.

K bye.

Hopefully he'll take Daigneault with him.

I hope so, then we can have a real coach in Hamilton, and a good shot at McDavid and Eichel

Heard on TSN1050 that Gerard Gallant is among four others that includes Dan Bylsma, Bill Peters, Marc Crawford and Ron Wilson in the final running for the Panthers head coaching job.

I'd be thrilled if Muller came back. Probably my favorite assistant coach post lockout.

EDIT: Someone beat me to it...

Well, that sucks.

Clearly, I don't pay as much attention to the hockey world at this time of the year.

If that's the list, I would highly doubt gallant is #1 on the panthers wish list.

Looks like Gallant will be Panthers next head coach...

Jimmy Murphy: “I have confirmed through an NHL source that Gerard Gallant is very close to becoming the new head coach of the Florida Panthers.”

“Per that same source, Panthers coaching job was down to Gallant or Dan Byslma but as of now it appears the job is Gallant’s.”
