    Do you really think that they would delay the firing (and lose access to the pool of available coaches) just to avoid a potential Ottawa hire? That doesn't make sense to me.

    Plus Montreal is still in the same Division.

    If Groulx does well in Syracuse, it could easily be him.

    "Boucher too rigid for Switzerland" (Google translation is actually "too hard"; could also be "too tough" or "too demanding"):

    Guy Boucher has no sense of humor. In all my life I have never seen anyone so cold in the approach to the game. It was a bit like having to deal with Viktor Tikhonov. "

    It's funny, because that's exactly the impression I have of him...no sense of humour at all.

    I don't get that impression. Either way that's what assistants are for as well

    Clouston had no sense of humor either, dead serious. I always thought they should have added an assistant for a good cop/bad cop dynamic. Maybe Crawford is the good cop. Or maybe he's the insurance policy.
