I'm really curious who will be the replacement (even if it's not this season). I really hope that they open up their options and forget about the whole language thing. Wishful thinking, I know.

Since the lock out

Chicago did it won a cup

Pens did it won a cup

Chicago and Pittsburgh also both almost lost their franchise due to sucking too hard and/or tanking prior to/just after the lockout.

My quick (and I mean quick) writeup of this morning's events. http://www.habsworld...cle.php?id=2672

I gotta say, I like this move and think it's time for a change. Today's NHL needs new, young, fresh coaches and I'm excited to see what Cunneyworth can do.

Just wish Muller was here. What about Weber for Muller and a pick? Should I post this in the rumor section?

About friggin time!!!!!

Hopefully the firing didn't happen too late like it did with NJ.

I really hope we won't see the same approach by Cuuneyworth by giving veterans a free pass and constantly berating rookies and blaming them for the teams losses.

I also hope that the habs finally play an attack style that is more suited to the speed they have.

I'd also hope this means that as long ad the team has a guy like Leblanc up, he gets more ice time and is actually being played with SKILLED players, rather then playing with scrubs.

Lastly, I hope this means Darche will NEVER be on the PP again and won't see more then 5-6 min until the Habs get healthy and after that will sit in the pressbox!!!

But for now, all I can say is, HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!!!!!!! Hopefully we will be plaing a style that will get Cammy playing again and we won't be playing Pleks into the ground and AK46 will finally get a fair shake!!!

I wouldn't bother. Moves like that are no longer permitted, they were wiped out in the CBA.

I was making a joke, guess it failed.

So, a guy walks into a bar with a roll of salami under one arm and a poodle under the other...

Wow!! I thought Martin would be spared until the off season. I am a little surprised at the firing but it makes some sense.

Let the rumour mill begin about the full time replacement.

:mellow:

I don't think this will improve the team but the good news is that the new coach doesn't speak French. Maybe it'll transition into our next (long-term) coach being Anglo too.

The move of Carrier behind the bench is interesting since he has never coached in the NHL. I think he will be Gauthier's eyes and ears...also, he speaks French so that will make a certain segment of the media happy.

On another note, I did some digging and was told "there is more to come". Not on the management/coaching front, but more on the trade end. Habs have been scouting the Blue Jackets pretty hard lately so who knows.

Either way, I think there will be some significant player movement on the horizon.
