LESS than 1% of 5th round draft picks play more tha 100 games in the NHL. Check yourself before you wreck yourself!

My guess is that MB is packaging gorges, bull and a forward (eller) for something... kesler? This is a set up for something bigger.

Guy Boucher led the 2009-2010 Hamilton Bulldogs to a 52–17–11 record for 115 points, while coaching max and dd into promotions to the bigs. He won coach of the year with most of the habs core players. If MB does not agree with the decision making from MT, he should not hesitate to pull the trigger.

Boucher was forced into playing a trap system in Tbay. His defence was laughable as was his goaltending. He coached a high tempo game in hamilton. Just shows he can adjust his style to the team he is coaching. Plus he wont alienate his best player.

Morning all, After seeing MT throw in the towel last night i must say its time for MB to move on with a new bench boss. I was not a fan of the hiring of MT to begin with, but have to admit that he has done some good things here. His record is above average, which makes it hard to dismiss him. But the fact of the matter is that his record may be "smoke in mirrors" as he has a world class goalie that keeps them in almost evey game. Benching his best player while down 2 goals in the third, and refusing to pull the goalie to try and comeback is just not smart. Every point in this league matters and he quitting on his team is reason enough for dismissal. This team needs a players coach, not a hard ass. Boucher would be ideal for this team. He expects alot from his players but also works with them and is great with young players. Like i said, it would be hard for MB to pull the trigger when his coach has a pretty good record, but this is about that time of the season where MT starts to lose the room. See last years record after 30 games. The players get the message MT is sending, and they are sick of it. Just my 2 cents...

Dreger is reporting that jordan tootto is available out of Detroit. I would LOVE this guy on our team. Another guy i have always liked is Zack Stortini. He was on waivers earlier this year.
