    It's almost time to put Alfie as head coach . Try to not listen to him. You can Diddle right off if you can't be coached by Alfie

    Lo! Much like The Great One, I'm not sure The Alfie would make a good coach.

    Facepalm

    It's time for a veteran coach like Julien when he gets canned. If someone like him can't fix the defensive issues then you will know it's the roster. Hell I would even take that fat bastard from St Louis for a couple years.

    Alfie was the silent type of on the ice, led by example. Does that translate to coaching? He might be ok to coach during practices but I don't know about head coaching.

    I want Jason smith the Diddle out.

    Why not? Who knows the ins and outs of the game better than Alfie?

    I want every coach fired this summer. All of them

    I think you've gone off the deep end a little. He has never had any coaching experience. It would be a disaster.

    Youre not curious to see what one of the great hockey minds could do behind the bench? It didn't work for Gretzky, but does that mean you never try with Alfie?

    Quenville is a defensive coach, Julien has had aggressive forechecking teams in Boston that are still excellent defensively. You have to go back to Pittsburgh in 08-09 to find a cup winner who finished outside the top 5 in goals against during the regular season, in fact more often than not the SC winner has allowed the fewest reg season goals against.

    Not even remotely curious. It takes special talent to do that job well, not to mention once you fire him he's gone from the org for good.

    That is Juliens saving grace for me, that he coaches a ferocious forecheck. I dunno...Quennville demands a 200 foot game from each player, less defensive first, but I'll take a change right now. I'd take Julien if he's the best option out there and hope for the best.

    I feel you but reall, he's never coached? I mean that's a franchise disaster waiting to happen. Coaches have one way out of their positions and that is being fired. Do you want Alfie fired eventually and leave the franchise? I sure don't. I'd much rather have him an assistant GM or in charge of player development (which is still what I think he might be best suited for, getting youngster to do what's right and learn the tricks from a real pro.)

    I want a coach with experience. A coach that has preferably won a cup. Right now the only guy that is remotely interesting is Crawford but I don't know if it's really a match. He's been passed over too many times.

    We might see a few coaches on the move this summer. We'll see who becomes available.

    Haha, hadn't read that quote yet. I completely agree. Not what I want with Alfie.

    Alfie has no coaching experience and I think we all agree that, apart from getting some fresh blood, we need to get an *experienced* NHL head coach.

    Just not Torts.
