    I will try to confirm it. As far as the Armada is concerned, I'm not too bad myself....Will be back in a few....

    Bouchard is a great motivator and he is so good technically.

    With the Armada, often he had a very poor team on paper at the starts of the season and he did some miracles with them.

    I am remember that i loved him so much as an analyst on RDS beteween periods. Sometimes he was analyst on the Senators game on RDS too

    ...in my view he is the best that RDS have ever had so far...a lot better technically than Marc Denis. My wife loved him too but for other reasons..lol

    The habs needs that guy and he is ready. He deserves this and it's not because he is French .

    If the Habs were not stuck with Julien's contract I would give him the job in a heartbeat

    I don't think that it's in the coaching staff that he will go but in the management !
    you can check ! I'm pretty confident because they are 4 different personne that say it to me

    don't know I can't even confirme that it's with the Habs I just know that next year he will not be back.. but I think that he will come to replace Carriere as assistant-GM + Laval GM

    Bouchard must be hired in some key position: for sure AHL coach or GM. Ideally in a year or two: Habs GM or head coach. Ducharme could be the head coach too over there in Laval

    I would like Julien BriseBois as Habs GM.

    And IF Patrick Roy becomes someday Prez, Hockey operations, I am pretty sure he,s gonna push to hire Groulx who is coaching Syracuse, the TB farm team.

    Let's bring some real brains, please !

    Some kind of 'light at the end of the tunnel' thing.

    Totally needed at this point.

    There’s no reason not to bring him and Ducharme into the organization. Money is never an issue and they are locals. There won’t be many Head Coaches fired in the NHL, if any, so I doubt Ducharme gets a job right away in the bigs. Laval would be a great step for him.

    I would be surprise if Bouchard accepts a Rocket GM job. What is a farm GM job anyway? Chances are if he does take that job, it has to come with assistant GM. Personnally, I would prefer to see him being a bench. Ducharme-Bouchard behind a AHL bench. Or Ducharme in charge of the Rocket (head coach and GM) and Bouchard assistant coach in the NHL. But Bouchard solely a GM farm team job is a waste of talent.

    If he aint related to Geoff, Bergy or Shawzie, they aren't coming here. Goes against the rules of the old boys club.

    Probably either Boucher or Vigneault 2.0 depending on which one of them gets fired from their current gig first.

    The typo was not being a bench. The typo was the fact that Lefebvre's name had to be there instead....:sarcasm:

    Take make the jump strait to the NHL would be just too much for him IMO.
    I think him managing Laval would be a fantastic start and pretty much have him learn the ropes there.
    Once that is done, he will have the experience and have worked with most prospects who will have passed by Laval and ready for the next step.
    Pretty much the same road Julien Brisebois took but we will "raise" our own
