• Eric Duhatschek suggests an easy fix

Now what? – Scott Burnside

• François Gagnon makes predictions from the beach (Canadiens to finish sixth)

• Here’s a surprise: Michel Bergeron doesn’t like an anglo coaching Hamilton. Robert L looks at the long history of this loopy thinking

• What’s a gritty forward worth? In Darroll Powe’s case, $725,000 and one-way. Patrick Kaleta: two years for $1.815 million. But Cody Bass’s deal is two-way

Quote of the Day on Twitter: “I wish they would put agents on a reality TV show and put them on a lie detector test and watch them all roast and die.”

    You gotta let it go Bill. This Boucher thing has gone on for too long now. ;-)

    Why is English the language of hockey, Kabbie? Because the majority of players speak English. Is that bigoted? No. It’s tradition. Well, same goes here.

    Bugs only argues that this particular TEAM was CREATED for French-Canadians. It is therefore MORE than important that we honor that French-Canadian heritage, not only to uphold the LEGACY of the CH (and not HC) but to retain our UNIQUENESS in the NHL.

    That’s what Bugs argues.

    Don’t tell me; I’ll tell you.

    therrien has a hot temper which was led to his downfall. Vigneault and Julien are EXCELLENT coaches – I would prefer either one to JM.

    cunneyworth is well respected in the rochester, ny area where he has spent a lot of time. i think he will do just fine and will be though of as a solid coach. as an aside, i played against him and he was a b!tch to play against.

  5. ed lopaz says:

    what I meant by embarassing is the way Gainey handled the situation. he terminated Julien, replaced him with Carbo, then announced publicly that hiring Carbo was “the best decision he had made in 5 years”, then fired Carbo.
    And Carbo, to this day, has stated publicly, that his “good friend” NEVER GAVE HIM AN EXPLANATION. That’s an embaraasmment on Gainey – not Carbonnneau.
