I think it's absolutely the worst news.

I think he's the right coach for them and I think he'll take them to the next level.

He'll get every once out of that team.

I might be sick actually.
How is he the right coach for them?

Aren't they having big issues scoring?

He didn't do it here. Not expect him to do it there. Maybe for a few games. But hes loyal to his system. Stubborn.

Congrats to the poster who said he !d be back in mtl..i sure did not expect it...i call it an act of despair combined with the.obligation of hiring a french speaking coach..
Now, i am hoping that this season marks the 3rd straight season that Julien does not make the playoffs.
As for Therrien....i'll predict he will never be a head coach in tbe NHL ever again

I called this ages ago, and it was the main reason I didn't want to fire Claude. For the last year or two, the best thing about having Claude (even if he wasn't working out particularly well for OUR team) was that he at least wasn't available to wreak havoc on us from the outside. He's a good coach, and just like players can take advantage of a new opportunity under a new coach, Julien can take advantage of this new opportunity with a new team.

Habs fans and Habs media hate Therrien, and I can only assume that some of it is for a rational reason. They're going to be good. There's one thing the Habs and the Bruins have in common: superstar goaltending. That's a great place to start building a team.

Oh, did I mention? ****.
called it to, easiest prediction this year

I feel like my parents divorced and my dad remarried.

I don't know who to be loyal to.

This is messed up.

Julien doesn't change the fact that Montreal just isn't very good.

Galchenyuk and Radulov are gonna love him

I'm surprised only because it happened now and not next season. I think most realized he would be the best fit for the Habs. I will never wish him good luck there.

I don't mind this at all, by the way. They're not nearly as talented as the teams we went to the Cup with. Claude hasn't shown he can take a next tier team anywhere far.

The worst part is the Bruins could have just said "no" but they didn't. Oh well, just another day in paradise.

Saw this coming from a mile away. Not sure why people said it was unlikely that he wouldn't go to Montreal. Therrien is hated by the fan base, Habs are struggling big time, and CJ is the best French-speaking coach available. Great hire by Montreal. With that said, **** the Habs and I hope they keep slumping and get their ***** kicked every game for the rest of the season.

I swear to god if they hire Therrien, I'm not going to be a happy camper.

And to those thinking it's crazy they gave Montreal permission to speak with Claude, I ask you to look at who the ownership is. You think Jacobs wants to pay him to not coach the Bruins?

He's the enemy now. Hopefully he will lead them to five series where the opponent clinches on their home ice.

With the premise that Claude's coaching philosophy is not suited to the current NHL style of play it will be interesting to see if he succeeds in Montreal.

A talented Bruins roster had several playoff failures so I hope that carries over to Montreal now.

Claude is going to be the missing cog MTL needed for a deep playoff run

This makes it a lot easier to hate Clode.

I don't blame him for taking the job though.

But what's up with an organization firing their head coach when they are currently 1st in their own division?

That's not cool.

Jacobs is more loyal to his pocket book than his franchise. He doesn't have to pay Clode anymore.

Why would Bruins management/ownership allow Montreal to speak to Julien now? Are they that cheap they aren't willing to pay his contract for the remainder of the season?
