    amazing stretches of goaltending. sure. I buy that. we're talking stretches where we receive top 5 goaltending. but surrounding those stretches are equally long or longer stretches of not good enough goaltending. look at Boston. or montreal. a decade of high end goaltending apart from one off year for each of rask and price.

    26 years. it' d be nice to have a 10 year stretch of a consistent top 12 or so starter that is able to play 55+ games.

    Hopefully it was showcasing Ceci.

    Although after that game, the Flyers scouts probably ran away.

    Can we not have "confirmed with link" in the title anymore? I keep seeing this thread pop up and hoping it says "confirmed with link: boucher sacked"

    If we are just planning to do nothing but gut the team,then he likely stays the year

    I suppose. But he's still coached the team in back to back seasons to a basement finish. That in itself should be enough to can him and at least let someone else try and make it better.

    But I agree . He is here to stay likely until the end of the season and hopefully Dorion reevaluates the coaching in the off season

    I’ve assumed EM had no interest in paying another coach to ride out the season with a group expecting high turnover year to year.

    No point dropping another million on a lost season and having a negative first year for a new coach.

    I 100% agree. Coaching needs to change. Look at the NYI roster and tell me that it's wayyyy better than ours. Because it's not. Ours might be better tbh. Yet they're currently sitting atop the Metro division, 3 points ahead of the stacked rosters of Pittsburgh and Washington, with a game in hand.

    The difference? Trotz >>>>>>>>>>>> Boucher.

    Should have just cleaned house at the break, it's going to happen next season anyways. might have well had a head start with an interim coach or something.

    There's no way Melnyk would sign off on paying an interim coach though. You just know the only option besides Boucher was Crawford. For that reason alone I'm fine riding it out. All these guys better be gone the day after the season ends though.

    He is too stubborn in his ways to adapt to anything beyond "first on puck" whatever the **** that means anymore.

    This. He needs to go. We need to give someone else a shot at the last 30 games.

    Does he get fired or we're going to reward ineptitude?

    No interim coach, please. Team can go on a run that convinces management hi is a right guy for job. Just finish a season and take best available at summer.
