Claude Julien Named Head Coach of Canadiens

Our former bench boss certainly wasn’t without a job for long...

What a turn of events for Julien in the last week. 7 days exactly after being let go by Don Sweeney, he lands a job back where he got his start, with the Blue, Blanc and Rouge. Everyone knew it wouldn't take long for Claude to get a job, and the Canadiens gig is certainly one where Julien could have success almost immediately. There seemed to be a lot of dissent in the ranks for now former coach Michel Therrien, and for Marc Bergevin, it was finally time to pull the trigger.

You may be our rival once again, but we won’t forget what you did for us in Boston.
