    He better hope that the players get better because I don't have faith in Bergy to get better players.

    Blame the players for maybe two players ever going to the net, one of which Julien constantly benched in Carr.

    You went 82 games without them ever doing it? That's a failure of coaching.

    Are you serious? Lol Carr playing 30 minutes a night wouldn't have made a damn difference.

    Julien is no different from the majority of coaches in this league, including "geniuses" like Babcock or Boucher, or, hmm, not so geniuses like Therrien. Give him a good, healthy lineup and he'll generally get good results. Give him a poor, unfit lineup and the results will likely be bad.

    So yes, obviously, the quality of the lineup necessarily needs to improve for the Habs to get better results. More shocking news at 11.

    His system blows for young teams, young small teams. This is why he was canned last time he was here, young players just don't give it an effort for him, his style is best suited for older teams that play a grinding, physical.. simple game. I never liked him much first time around.

    Why does it applies to young players only? Been and Schlemko don't have to get better? I sure do hope they have to if they want to keep their job.

    Montreal will never change. The team is supposedly run as a meritocracy but in reality it's run like an union.

    It would send a good message .. The coach ask his players to go to the net. Carr does it and he gets benched in favor of bull**** players like L. Shaw, Froese, etc .. Doesn't make any sense .

    As previously stated, we already improved our defensemen with Schlemko, Alzner, Morrow and Streit over what we previously had, not to mention Hemsky which improved our forward group, what else can you ask for for next season?

    Can wait to find out what the improvement over the improvement is going to look like, must be crazy good.

    Montréal is the further away a team can be from being a meritocracy. I mean Drouin has been our first line center for 90% of this year. Never missed a shift on the PP.

    I really don't think "going to the net" is our problem. We have plenty of guys who go to the net in Gallagher and Lehkonen are pitbulls around the crease and Carr, Shaw, D-Lo, DLR also go to messy areas. We need talent, not more net drive.

    More Alzners, Froeses, Shaws, Schlemkos, please.

    I can't add Benn, really. Jamie Benn would look too good but he probably doesn't have enough character.

    I'm utterly shocked he didnt mention the dark negative cloud the fans have created over the team which hinders player performance.

    Is anyone else imagining Julien sitting on Bergevin's lap, with Bergevin operating Claude's mouth with a wooden hinge?

    This roster needs an overhaul. Even if the younger players get better we will still suck
    Other teams younger players are better and will keep improving as well
    Without a top C , this is a lottery team agaib
