Montreal is the home base for the most storied franchise in the NHL, but you do not realize how many people outside of that home base truly love the Canadiens.
We should meet up at a bar sometime and catch a Habs game.

Um, yeah... so about Randy Cunneyworth... if I recall correctly, when he was the coach of Rochester it seemed the Amerks were often able to provide the Sabres with players that could contribute whether it was for a few games or on a permanent basis. I think its a positive hire that could really help the gap between having good prospects & turning them in to successful NHLers. I think that has been missing with Habs & really needs to be improved

Knowing about a player who played 10 years doesn't make you understand the game any less today.

It's like saying we know nothing about hockey because we havent seen any games from the 50s. So that means everyone older than us has more hockey knowledge.

There's a difference between knowing hockey facts and hockey knowledge. You can know of facts, but you can aslo be incapable of hockey analysis.

Also, appearntly all these people know of Cunneyworth, but yet no one can give an analysis about his coaching ability and assets.
If you never played hockey to a minimum competitive level (let's say Midget AAA and up) you know sweet **** about the game. Implementation of systems, drills, etc. Simple as that.

You can't say you "know your hockey" by watching games on TV, listening to Joel's intermission antics and watching l'académie McDonald.

As for Cunneyworth, it's a good signing. If he coaches like he played, the Dogs should be a hard working team, and that's all good - no slackers. Looking forward to see him in Hamilton.

There's a reason why actual NHL coaches/GMs have played in the NHL for the most part: they know about the game.

Whenever i see a post like this, I agree with it right away. Then I think of Jean Perron.

If you ignore the two rather large factors of politics and odds of continued interest in the sport. Politics just like in any sport, play a major role in acquiring a position in a hockey related occupation, hockey players have the best odds of doing this. A hockey player that plays competitively for a longer period of time has greater odds of continuing to follow/be involved with the sport.

Me personally; I played soccer for 15 years, playing in Gold/Silver all the way up to U-19. I played hockey for like 4 years, till the end of Pee Wee. I know the game of hockey and how it works better than I do soccer, because I have more interest in the NHL, and I watch infinitely more hockey games than I do soccer games. I also have friends that have more or less hockey knowledge as I do and have played all the way up to Junior A or Junior B.

You don't need to play to a certain level to know a lot about certain sports. I think playing at least a couple years is huge for understanding the nuances and game situations, but it is not imperative to play up to "midget AAA" to know a lot about hockey.

For a tv station that holds the rights to ALL the habs games, they sure do like to **** all over them about almost every move they make. Rds should start replacing these old senile ******** with some competent people. Because unfortunately some people are actually listening to what they say. Seriously its just getting embarrassing. I'd Rather listen to people like MAG, Matthias Brunet and Martin McGuire that know what they are talking about.

He was AHL coach of the year and Rochester has been one of our biggest rivals (we have had trouble with them in the past when he was their coach) so he knows the Dogs well.

As for his coaching, his AHL resume looks pretty good.
I'm kinda surprised by this as well.

Great coach. Helped develop the Sabres Amerck bunch. Miller, Roy, Vanek, Pominville, and Gaustad. Should do good things in the organization.
He coached the Buffalo farm team for a long time and had a lot of influence on the development of their youth system.

An article, from 2008, when he left the Sabres,

His departure will be a huge blow to the Sabres organization. Buffalo has long depended on Cunneyworth to train and prepare their young players on the farm team. His similar coaching style allowed players to easily transition to playing under Lindy Ruff, and to prepare themselves for the NHL. Almost the entire current Buffalo roster played for him in Rochester, and his help was critical to forming the current team.
The guy has a great history of developping AHL players. He's certainly a very interesting candidate for the job. Not some random dude at all.

Michel Bergeron is such an imbecile. The Bulldogs coach has nothing to do with developing the future Habs' head coach, it's about developing our ****ing prospects. Also, why do they always have to make everything about Québécois?

There is no problem doing both? Look at Boucher, I bet a lot of people would have loved him yo be our head coach and he developped our prospects.
