    Anaheim in 2006-2007. Good team though.

    would rather have neither of those two. Rather have a coach that can coach an offensive system !!!

    I wonder about Pascal Vincent, this year's AHL coach of the year.

    Another more suitable candidate would be appreciated. I would also hire a translator if he happens to be English.

    Here you. Same here, but if I'm answering the question, it's not even a toss-up between the two. I'd pick Vigneault over Julien 7 days of any week.

    Was Tim Thomas' performance really THAT good? I mean, the Bruins had to win 4 Game 7s to win the cup.

    Without looking it up, I think his save percentage was somewhere near .940

    I was a big Julien supporter then Koko happened. Just curious if any fans see any truth / same treatment of Alex?

    "Alex Galchenyuk isn't problem but coach is," he typed at 12:02pm et on Thursday. "Has never successfully coached Russian (sic). Took midseason most Russian club. All but one gone"
    Milstein then responded to a user tweet citing his client Alexander Khokhlachev as an example, pointing out his lack of playing time under Julien during his time with the Boston Bruins.
    "You can go back to his B's days and see what he did w/ Alexander Khokhlachev," typed @ON3M4N_SHOW. "Solid AHL numbers had 8gp & barley (sic) 10min a night under CJ"

    Three, and Thomas pitched shutouts in two of them plus won the third in OT. And don't forget he was terrific in the OT vs the Habs in game 5. Habs should've won that game at least twice in OT IIRC but Thomas robbed them. He was .940 for the whole playoffs, that's ludicrous.

    Take 10-15 points of his SV% that year and those Bruins might not have gotten out of the first round, never mind won the whole thing.

    I'll take Gallant, thanks. Oh wait, we already had him but let him go.

    thats true, but he sounds french so it may fool the 'true fans' in Montreal who only have French as a priority to coach here.

    Always liked Vigneault but the NY fans aren't all that happy with him.

    It's time for new blood. I hope that we hire a coach who's good at development. It's time to just start over.

    First Therrien. Then Julien. Then Vigneault? They need to end this dutch rudder of coaching circle jerks and find someone new.
