Ducharme might be relieved soon, in more ways than one.

Hang on just one second. Are you guys trying to suggest that the Habs run through the playoffs last year was just the result of some luck and a hot goalie and not managerial brilliance at the helm of a bunch of scrappy winners whose fortitude made up for their lack of skill?

Well, that sort of thing I just do not have time for.

Unless he was outright ruining the development of their prospects (a la New York Rangers under David Quinn?), or some sort of HR nightmare, was not in Montreal's best interest to hold steady on the rudder? Ducharme got a 3 year extension in the offseason, so they are now paying a good number of people to not be there (are they still paying Julien? lol).

Oh I see. Runway for a rookie coach.

Yeah I don't get it either.  They seem like a slam-dunk to finish 32nd and get the best odds of #1 overall pick, why ruin a good thing?  If they get that "new coach bounce" and start winning a few games it puts all that in jeopardy.

Well, just to counter my own argument a bit: what available coach could fix what ails the Habs right now enough to give them even two-digit wins on the season?

This would make for the 8th coach in 9 years for the Oilers. At some point, maybe, do you start thinking the issue isn't the Coaching?

Dave Tippet's final decision as head coach of the Oilers was to play 39-year old Mike Smith, who because of injuries had only played in 6 games this season and hadn't played in over a month, in both games of a back-to-back set.
