Ducharme as coach and Bouchard as GM of Laval is what is being speculated, not a rumor at this point though.

I mean sly has been terrific at developping Nate Beaulieu, Jarred Tinordi, Darren Dietz, Morgan Ellis, Brett Lernout, Mac Bennett, Greg Pateryn, et all.

I give him the benefit of the doubt in terms of having been asked to turn dried dog shit into good clean moist dog shit. Seven years of losing seasons and the likelihood that he is not a choice of Julien's, however, makes it a poor decision.
Also, let's keep this thread about Galchenyuk's on-ice performance, development and value and NOT bring in his personal life or race.

We all think Sly is a bad headcoach. Then we are adults, we realize that there's a real world where the Habs are managing a team. So the bordz constant panic and paranoïa about the purple pant idiot who hand-picked his friends and wants to destroy the Habs with his ego, can stay on bordz.

Did Not indicate that he wants a rational discussion ? The constant belaboring of points, the need to wait, endlessly, until something can further the opinion, then the killing of a house fly with a sledge hammer, is exhausting to read, I can only imagine what it must be like to post.

SL has obviously had a poor record as a head coach in the AHL. It's too bad, when hired, a lot of hockey people, McGuire being one of them, touted him as an up and coming hockey guy. From the outside, it seems that he should be let go. As always,I wonder what the org. sees hat I don't ? Covered ? I miss anything ?

Oh for fuck.sakes.

Cant even talk about.hockey anymore without this condescending shit. The only thing exhausting is the shitstorm of responses with no value that say go.away or go.to boredz or whatever.

Same.thing i said to mustafa... if you dont like the post , no one is forcing you to read it.

If i want to.chime.in on a hockey topic, oh well.

Get the.sticks out your asses. Nothing i said was out of line with what anyone else said..

Youve become a bunch of hyper sensitive twats.

Omg beaker said something about hockey. He must be the worst person in the world. Tell him to go away.

Patch - Tavares - Drouin
Galchenyuk - ROR - Gallagher
Hudong - Danolt - Scherbak
Byron - DLR - Lehkonen

Dahlin - Weber
Mete - Petry
Riely - Juulsen

Price
Fucalé

Just harvest cups for the next decade.

That’s true Phees - and yet most are smart enough to understand he basically had an ECHL team. In October lineup had Carr, Froese, Scherback, Holland, McCarron, Terry in their top 6, Taormina,Jarabek, Lernout top 3 D.

Just like NHL team - not enough organizational talent in the players that need to step into important roles. The last draft and the upcoming one should reverse the course,

You can make fun of his lineup but Chris terry led the league in pts and pts/game this year. Led it in pts/gm last year too. Taormina is one of the best offensive d in the ahl. Gelinas is a powerplay weapon at that level. Cracknell/holland put up almost 35 goals combined for the rocket.

He had a good goalie in lindgren too.

Froese is another ahler who could score at that level.

Scherbak was putting huge points up too.

Are they nhl prospects? Outside of scherbak, No. They arent ahl prospects.

Is it lack of ahl talent? Not really. Ahl teams ofteb have success with these journeyman AAAA players. Dominate the AHL, not good enough for the NHL types.

Consider that grand rapids won the calder cup last year... 7 of their top 8 playoff scorers were guys youd call journeyman ahlers and only 1 was a prospect in tyler bertuzzi.

Did the team get decimated by callups. Sure.. its true that in the 2nd half of the season depth was an issue.

But. They were never good. It isnt like they were a good ahl team early and fell apart cause the habs took players like scherbak and froese. They were bad from the start.

Its also been 6 years for sly running the ahl team. What are the results? Development of nhlers? Thats Not really there either. This is even more true when you consider hes supposed to be a defenseman specialist as that was his nhl position. The only guys hes developped are forwards andrighetto, dlr, scherbak, hudon.

His development record isnt good and his teams have missed the playoffs 5/6 years. We cant blame it all on lack of talent.

Consider that grand rapids won the calder cup last year... 7 of their top 8 playoff scorers were guys youd call journeyman ahlers and only 1 was a prospect in tyler bertuzzi.

Did the team get decimated by callups. Sure.. its true that in the 2nd half of the season depth was an issue.

But. They were never good. It isnt like they were a good ahl team early and fell apart cause the habs took players like scherbak and froese. They were bad from the start.

Its also been 6 years for sly running the ahl team. What are the results? Development of nhlers? Thats Not really there either. This is even more true when you consider hes supposed to be a defenseman specialist as that was his nhl position. The only guys hes developped are forwards andrighetto, dlr, scherbak, hudon.

His development record isnt good and his teams have missed the playoffs 5/6 years. We cant blame it all on lack of talent.


Do you actually believe the shit you post? Never good? They were flirting with first place before the callups started. They were 9-5-2 before the massive callups started.

To address the rest of your stream of fake facts, it requires too much effort - for which I have none given your trump like troll behaviour.

I wonder if there’s a rule of thumb to ice the best AHL team. Pros/prospects ? Does Mtl sign/keep the Eisenscmidt guys too long ? Should you try and overpay a Chris Terry line to try and guarantee a winning culture ?

They started strong, but then fell apart.

One callup at 9-5-2 of Byron Froese should not have destroyed the team. The depth wasn't really challenged til January and February and they fell apart long before that.

But don't address the rest of my points, 6 years of lack of development, 5/6 years of playoffs missed. The fact he had a top AHL defenceman, a top AHL scorer, a top centre in Holland/Cracknell that scored 35 goals, a good goalie in Lindgren and couldn't win. But you don't want to address those, as you have an agenda of protecting this regime at all costs. I bring facts, and you are the one screaming "fake news"... who is the real trump-like troll?

I prefer the focus to be on development. But part of development is winning. There needs to be a balance, and guys like Terry are necessary to help teach the youth and to ensure the team wins and puts the prospects in important games and situations. It all goes hand in hand.

In some ways though you can forgive missing the playoffs if the players are developping... but the fact is that they are not developping either. Lefebvre's track record is not good on either the winning or the development front.

A little teaching moment why some of us have trouble with your posting.

1. To embellish your rant, you say they were never good. Once you were shown they were actually a pretty good team before they were ravaged by callups - you now pivot to say they started strong but fell apart. Which is it? They fell apart because in November they did not have the organization depth to replace Jerabek, Deslauriers, Froese, Lingren and Carr. I don't see how this is a reflection on Sly except if your mind is already made up.

2. You say one callup, but In a span of 2 weeks in early November, Jerabek, Deslauriers, Froese were called up never to return - Carr was called up 8 days later never to return. Also before Froese was called up, Lindgren was already gone replacing Price. He only returned at the end of the month. Again you are really trying hard to hang on to your point or you are just trolling. Either way, it's disingenuous - meant to distract from the fact that most of your ramblings are just emotional reactions to the state of the team.

And this goes on and on before your revert to the lazy 6 years blah.blah.blah....

This is what he was given. Facts

Forwards

- Chris Terry led the entire league in points.
- Cracknell/Holland combined for 35 goals and 67 points which would be a top 5 AHL scorer.
He had Scherbak, Carr, Rychel, Deslauriers on the top line... other than a few games, at least one of these guys was available. Thats a solid top line in the AHL. Heck that should be one of the best lines in the entire league and looking at Terry's points and the Centres points it produced like one.

- His job, over the last six years was to develop guys like McCarron, Audette, Gregoire, Boucher, Eischenschmidt, etc... to become his second and third line in the AHL. If he can't even develop these players to become 2nd and 3rd line AHLers, never mind NHLers, why do we want him in charge of development?


On Defence
- Matt Taormina was 3rd amongst all defencemen in points.
- Eric Gelinas is an NHL veteran who should be a very good AHL defenceman. He scored 13 goals.
- Brett Lernout was down in the AHL the majority of the season.
- After Jerabek was called up, Juulsen returned from injury.

That should be a strong top 4 at that level.


In net
- Lindgren had 37 starts.
- McNiven was a rookie, but came in as the top goalie in the OHL the last two years. Its not chopped liver, and if the defence had any semblance of structure in front of him, he should make saves. The fact that Lindgren has a higher save % in the NHL than the AHL tells you a lot about the quality of Laval's defensive structure.

But sure its acceptable that he's not developping players and he's not winning either.

This organization's motto when bergevin was hired was no excuses. All I see in your post is a bunch of excuses.
