    I like Mario Pouliot as a candidate...back-to-back presidents cup and memorial cup winner with two different teams.

    Coach: Mario Pouliot
    Assistant Coach: Dominique Ducharme & Luke Richardson

    Replace Kirk Muller

    Pouliot will have to go through AHL level first and he is already 55 years old.

    Interesting piece by M-A Godin about the impact of having 4 people behind the bench nowadays.

    Also goes in depth about the roles of certain coaches: Ducharme is the sounding board. In other words, he provides stats mid-game on Faceoffs and all kinds of stuff or shares observations like we have been making too many turnovers at the blue line. He's also in charge of the defense in the last minutes of the game. CJ also wants the staff to avoid having coaches repeat the same thing or talk to the players too often in order to avoid them getting off their game: Tu veux quand même que les gars réagissent sans qu’ils pensent constamment. Penser, c’est bon pour les journées d’entraînement où l’on enseigne et où le joueur a le temps d’absorber l’information. Mais pendant les matchs, on a juste besoin que tu sautes sur la glace et que tu réagisses et que tu joues. »

    Pourquoi le Canadien participe à la tendance d’avoir...

    Didn't know where to post this but seems appropriate with PP woes and how we keep putting Weber on the top PP unit.

    Uh oh.... Hope the coaching staff doesn't decide they need to use Chiarot on the PP since he's the big offseason acquisition... Last thing we need is both units focusing on the big booming point shot

    Hall’s data shows that the average NHL success rate – meaning how often teams managed to tie the game with the goalie pulled when down by one goal – was 14.6 percent in 2018-19. The Canadiens had 11 such situations last season (they also pulled the goalie when down by more than one goal another 11 times) and scored that one time in Las Vegas, giving them a success rate of 9.1 percent. Hall’s research shows that pulling the goalie was more successful when it happened earlier, with the average successful pull coming with 1:55 left in regulation, whereas the average unsuccessful pull came with 1:41 to play. The Canadiens were one of the least aggressive teams in the league in this regard, pulling their goalie with an average of 1:31 left. (Source: The Athletic).

    It definitely puts things into perspective to see actual numbers but I swear in my time following the Habs (04-05 lockout), the Habs have basically sucked with the extra man. Is it because of lack of size? Lack of talent like P. Kane to utilize the extra man? Coaching?

    As for last year, if they scored just one more goal with the extra attacker, then they would be above league average in conversion, so we are really picking at the margins with this data.

    It would be interesting to see where the habs rank in terms of extra attacker conversion percentage over the last decade or so, and whether the data is more correlated towards overall goals for, or more specifically, powerplay conversion.

    Last year, the habs were decent in overall goal scoring, but dreadful on the PP, so what is the more important trait for 6 on 5 success?

    In fairness, Weber has one of if not the most dangerous slapshots in the league. His inclusion on the top PP and usage of his shot is justifiable. The problem is the over-reliance on it which makes it easier for teams to cover him and prevent him from getting a good shot. The other problem is the lack of a pure shooter like a Kovalev, Cammalleri, Galchenyuk type. Domi, Drouin and Tatar have good shots but aren't great when it comes to one timers. Unless a pure shooter joins the team this season, the Habs PP will need to be built around good-fast puck movement that opens up players and give them good looks.

    Tidbit of how CJ will exploit new rule change for PP (team getting the PP to decide which side the FO takes place).

    Samedi soir à Ottawa, Claude Julien se doutait bien que les Sénateurs enverraient le droitier Jean-Gabriel Pageau, leur homme de confiance en infériorité, pour prendre la mise en jeu. Weal s’est amené du côté droit – forçant Pageau à travailler sur son revers – il a remporté la mise et Jeff Petry a ouvert la marque 11 secondes plus tard.

    Furthermore, Godin speculates that the PP units will be the following: Danault (goal line), Weal (half-wall), Gally (bumper), Weber (Ovy spot) and Drouin (point). Then Suzuki (goal line), KK (left half- wall), Tatar (bumper), Domi (Ovy spot), Petry (point). He believes that the 1st PP unit will be there to maintain possession with faceoff wins. Last year on the PP, Danault had a 77.1% on FO and Weal had 82.4% (small sample tho). If the opposition is able to dump out the puck, the unit will go off for a change and Domi/Petry are good enough skaters that it shouldn't be too hard to re-enter the zone and get the plays going.

    By the data, the average team sucks with their goalie pulled. The habs aren't a good PP team, and a 6 on 5 isn't quite as lucrative an opportunity as a 5 on 4, so it makes sense that we're bad (worse) in this situation. And of course, we only get 1 minute or so in this situation.

    Don't know who that Mario guys is... honestly anyone with the name Mario brings some bad associations for me. One thing I know for sure that Muller's time is up. I don't see what he brings. PP has sucked for more than just last season. Not sure why so many assistant coaches are needed.

    Lack of offensive center who was good in faceoffs hurt also.

    Suzuki will make the team and play with Danault and they share the face-offs depending on what side the the puck drop is. We have been missing a right handed center for a while now. Weal and Thompson can have the same duties on the 4th line. This might result in better puck possession numbers.

    Problem the Habs have is we have to outwork the other team 5/5 cause we are not going to beat them with our PP. We lack shot power to go with our great skating team.

    "In training camp thus far, Gallagher has taken Armia’s spot on the top unit, making him the trigger man on that particular play. In the final preseason game Saturday against the Ottawa Senators, Gallagher was moving up and down the slot from that bumper position, which appeared to be a new wrinkle the Canadiens didn’t use last season – generally speaking, that bumper guy was more or less static in the middle of the slot." - Basu

    Also speaks of importance of having a plan for puck retrievals and finding ways to stretch out time spent in the O-zone with a tiring PK unit. It might be the biggest reason why Gally was bumped up.

    not a bad interview, I liked that he wants to perfect the things they do well, not just work on what hasn't worked last year. No big surprises but a decent interview.

    I always appreciated how CJ is able to articulate thoughts and be frank. Such a difference from his idiot predecessor. Good interview.

    Absolutely agreed.......Clod is 10X the coach compared to the clown Therrien.............that said, I still have some frustrations with Clod, but nothing compared to the Therrien gong show.
