Am I the only one that feels like Claude Julien is just not going to take this team anywhere? This team is playing very mediocre hockey and there is better talent than that. After last years historic collapse against the Flyers he should have been FIRED! Look at the Flyers this year just dominating the Eastern Conference with a Head Coach in Peter Laviolette that has led a team (Carolina) to a Stanley Cup Championship. He was hired in mid-season last year and the Bruins should have had the foresight to make that hire. This is a coach that was let go by the Bruins organization many years ago and clearly a mistake. This team has very often this season come out flat and seemingly unprepared in many games falling behind early. In the famous words of Tom McVee catchup hockey is LOSING hockey. Even last night the Bs were lucky to hold on after taking a 3-0 lead as they were completely outplayed in the 2nd and especially the 3rd period. This team clearly needs a major shakeup and it need not be on the player roster. I don't know what playoff tested coaches may be available but if this team is going to take the next step there needs to be a change. Otherwise all we will get as Bs fans is another early playoff exit. The GM has foolishly extended this coach's contract for another three years and that will probably be the reason he keeps this job. While on the subject of the GM one can only wonder out loud WHY he would have done that when this coach has proven HE CAN'T GET THE JOB DONE IN THE PLAYOFFS! The GM has also given out ridiculous contracts to some players as well... Most recently Chara and Bergeron. Both are good players to be sure but those contracts are totally out of line and surely neither player would have received those contracts in free agency. Why are you paying your 3rd line center 5 mil per season?? The GM has done some good things as well by making excellent trades like the Kessel and Horton deals so credit should be given for that but this coach HAS TO GO before this is another lost season.
