I don't think a single member of these boards knows Allaire personally or well enough to properly criticize the guy the way that he has been on this board.

What I will say is this:

In baseball, when pitchers struggle, the pitching coach takes some heat.

And in baseball, when the bats go cold, the batting coach takes some heat.

In football, when the offensive side of the team struggles, the O-coordinators take some heat.

Therefore in hockey, when goalies struggle, why should the goalie coach not take some heat?

I'm not sure who is making him a scapegoat, because Burke has defended him and the media have been remarkably lenient, but he deserves some tough questions to be asked from him.

TSN right now and it said Roy wouldn't reject any team so would it work to bring him in if Francois retires?

He won't leave complete control of a team to become a goalie coach.

Actually no, they haven't. :-)

He is going to be Coach or GM of the Habs or Coach and GM of the NewNords.

He is more iconic in Quebec than Glimour and Wendel are combined here.

He is getting an epic, massive job in one of those two franchises.

The biggest mistake teachers/coaches make is having tunnel vision that there is only one route to success. Hall of Fame goalies like Hasek, Brodeur, Roy, Fuhr, Belfour, etc. all played radically different styles.
Not sure how Belfour had a radically different style, unless you are comparing him to the above. Belfour was as technical as a goalie you would see in the NHL. Played the angles, conserved his movements, and almost never would you see him flop around such as Joseph and Hasek. Belfour's mentor was one of the best if not the best professional goalies in Tretiak. Tretiak was his coach back on Chicago.

All the Leafs goalies will benefit from his departure. He's had a lot of success with his philosophy but that is now outdated...

Toronto being Toronto, even during a lockout, names are already being batted around for Allaire’s replacement. The two front-runners are believed to be two former Leafs – Rick St. Croix and Curtis Joseph, with St. Croix having the edge given his years with coach Randy Carlyle in Winnipeg.

Getting someone who can have a good working relationship with the existing staff should be a priority given the turmoil that went on with Allaire.
