Paul Maurice becomes head coach of Magnitogorsk (KHL)

Ill merge this with the News around the league soon, but I though I should give a heads up since he was an Ex-Coach of ours.

Good luck to him.

I always liked him when he was here, Very personable. It's too bad he was put in a terrible position.

An English speaking coach can be hired to coach a team that has the majority of players unable to speak fluent English along with the majority of their fans. However an English speaking coach can't coach the Habs that has the majority of players that can speak English and Over 50% of their population is fluent in English..

I will admit -- the first thing I thought of is why he would want to go over there, especially after last year's tragedy. Even if it's another head coaching gig.

but in all seriousness good for him. Look at the roster he had here and where they are now, aside from Sundin and Kaberle he had nothing to work with, his goalies during that tenure were Aubin (underplayed), Raycroft, and Toskala.

Somehow he took the canes to the final 4 twice and final once. Nice guy, was the best coach we've had with the media in the last 20 years (not including Carlyle, his tenure has been too short).

All the best to him over in the KHL. Doesn't make sense to me though with the whole language barrier etc.

He was a VERY good analyst while on TSN, so it sucks he won't be there anymore. Good luck to him though.
