someone correct me if I'm wrong, but Gerard Gallant failed miserably in his first gig as an an nhl coach. I like the Kevin Dineen idea, great player (tons of heart) and has been extremely succseeful in the AHL.
It was a belief in Columbus that Doug MacLean was seriously micro-managing the coaching decisions being made by Gallant (like Dougie is wont to do about everything).
Guy Boucher has apparently turned down the job offer from Columbus.
If what this ends up being is that Columbus has to go with their second (or third) option, it could mean that Dineen and/or Arniel are now back in play.
To be honnest , i dont understand his move . I see only two options for Boucher that explain his decision : 1)The Habs will give him more cash to stay in the AHL as a head coach or as an assistant in Montreal and he will wait for Martin to get fired . 2) Boucher have a better offert on the table to be a coach in the NHL, in a better than the CBJ.
Dude Steve Yzerman.. Guy Boucher.. Steven Stamkos... Vinny Lecavalier... Victor Hedman... Malone... St Louis... Tanguay... What else do they need?! They making playoffs for SURE this year with Boucher.
Congratz on the pickup guys. You're back on the right track
