so let's just hope it's Julien's last season...

Again and again, same as usual against TB, he was outcoached... and so his team was... Didn't use his timeout to calm down his team when needed (at 3-3 when it was 2-0... wasn't it the time, or what?), Begin-Perrault in the last 2 minutes, Bouillon with plenty of ice time, while he was a tourist on at least two TB goal, and he still played in the last minute...
Another loss...
If Gainey doesn't move, i'm afraid they're out of the playoffs...
Remaining: 3 vs ottawa, 3 vs NJ, 2 vs Bos and 2 vs Tor...
So... what do you guys think?

Ah, come on... Tonight was an example of how bad he could be... And I don't say this 'cause of the lost of tonight... He's is not a good coach, point... I'll ask a question, because just can't aswer myself: could anyone tell me when the last time he (or did he ever...) took a timeout to calm his troop when they lost a lead of 2 goals or so... He always waits for the last 50 seconds to explain things they know too well (I hope...)...
So?

Ah, how soon you forget how much this team has improved and has changed in faces (younger ones that is) under Julien.

He is one of the major reasons we have improved. We are one trade away in my opinion from being a legit playoff team and threat. BG will do the deal, but he won't pay the price (future that is).

Julien is here to stay.

the team was well served by the tremendous play of Théo since Jan 1st, because without that, Julien would have look like what he really is, a not-so-good coach that may look horrible some nights...

I think CJ is a VERY good coach and I credit him with the Habs playing much better than expected this season.

I only say that it appears clearly that he is not a good coach when they loose like this... and when they loose, it is generally this way...
and... a VERY good coach...? I wonder what makes a VERY good coach, for you... just to know....

Well I guess we better fire every coach in the NHL then, it's not like CJ is he first coach to have his team blow a lead and lose a game!

CJ's record in the CHL, AHL and WJC shows he is capable of being a good coach and given the opportuntiy he has been given he deserves his job.

Who do you want??? It is the players who play, not CJ!

Lets bring in the same old tired faces and recycled coaches I guess?

A very good coach... that means he should be at least in the first 1/4 or 1/3 of the
leaugue's coaches... So... Martin, Quinn, Hartley, Lemaire, Burns, Hitchcock, Quenneville, Sutter, Lewis, Crawford, Murray, Babcock, McTavish, Trotz, Wilson, Tortorella...
He's not even in the first half.... So... A "Very" good coach... not sure...
But, i'm probably wrong.... they loss and i'm a very emotive person so i took my keyboard to cry this...
and by the way, do you guys think that they can make the playoffs with the current roster? no trade is needed?
seriously, if so, they'll finish with 84-5 points... while buffalo will be in, with 88-90..
I'm sad... but it's this...

As a Leaf fan i see a team that has been very difficult to play against under Julien. He will be more scrutinized in the playoffs because that is where this team is headed. They will give any team in the east a hard time. They are capable of playing up tempo or playing a trap. If Gainey does anything it may be for one more scoring physical winger.

Please shut up, you are making yourself look worse with every post. The coaches you list have at least 5 plus NHL years of experience except for Babcock who has a worse record than CJ this year (plus he has a better record than Hartley, Quenneville, Sutter, Murray, Babcock, McTavish and Trotz as of right now this season)...and guys like Tortorella and Lewis have been assistants in the NHL for a long time too.

Plus where do you get us finishing with 84 or 85 points and the Sabres with 88 or 90???

ok ok... i'll admit it : CJ is a very good coach...
and Juneau is a superstar, he deserves his icetime
Bouillon too... and rivet... and sundstrom... and dackell... and it's right to bench ribeiro... and bulis on 1st line with 10pts... and use perreault on a 4th line because he's on his last miles... ok... yeah... you're right guys.. and I was wrong... ok... and obviously, i was a fool to think that CJ wasn't a good coach...

This team is alot like you, fairly young "JR poster" and needs to mature in it's play. Now there is a consistent thread in the bulk of the Habs losses this year and that is a fundemental positional breakdown. I don't think the coach is asking his wingers to be standing still below the hash marks in the defensive zone when playing 5 on 5. Now Julien is also still a rookie NHL coach and if he runs into another effort like tonight he should take as many consecutive bench minors as possible as the PK played a superior positional game in the defensive end and kept Tampa and the puck in the quiet zones for the most part.

Patience and keep breathing.

I think CJ is doing a fine job and deserves much more respect than the fans typically give him. Under CJ the team has become more responsible defensively, and is playing with more discipline. Sure, there are bound to be a few bumps along the way (such as the current losing streak), but Julien deserves our respect for what he's done with the players he has. Let's face it, the Habs are not the most talented team in the league. Nevertheless, Julien has got them to play well and so far this season we have a winning record. If you really think that we'd have a better record with a different coach, you're kidding yourself.
