I like Laviolette. I just meant that I dont consider him at the Maurice level yet.
I understand.. He doesn't have much of a track record, and only with one team..
I give him extra credit for dealing with Milbury and how tight and smart the Isles played to start his tenure.. Losing the players eventually or not, that was an impressive turnaround for a long dormant franchise..

I don't think that was a difficult locker room to lose.
It'll be interesting to see how Lavvy's approach works for old schoolers like Francis and Brindy. Unlike the leaders on the Island, the guys with letters on their sweaters down in Carolina share Lavvy's views on hard work and commitment to winning. It could be a very happy marriage.
although not the nhl laviolette was excellent during his tenure as head coach in providence for the bruins. i wish him the best in carolina. in fact he should probably still be in boston if the cheap ******** didnt give em the shaft.
