    I'd be ok if one coach was let go. Segin's all like, "Nope, that's not gonna work either." Jagr's just dumbfounded. Chara's hoping Jagr has some good ideas. Bergeron's all cold stone "THIS guy with his dry erase board again." Classic.



    Funny stuff!

    Something that i mentioned in the 2011 playoffs back then was Julien had to learn when to use his timeouts, and last night was  an example of telling his team  with the rangers empty net, not to be afraid to ice the puck.

    Whatever it is, either the 3 rookies are making him look better or just CJ letting these kids  play there game, is certainly a huge plus.

    Good all around for this team in this series.

    The only complaint about Julien Ive ever thought and made, was the fact that he doesnt stray too far from his lines. It took him game 7 in the Toronto Series before moving Jagr and Seguin respectively. I sort of get it. Its been proving to work all year, but sometimes changes need to be made a little sooner. But this team isnt much different from the cup winning team, roster wise. So I never thought Julien was bad or should be fired.....It comes down to the players performing and executing the system. Shoot, they should all have no problem with the system. The majority have been playing it for 5-6 years now. They always blame the coach, in every sport, which I dont always agree with. Players have to take some responsibility for their own play or lack there of.

     


    I think when dealing with a bunch of really young, rich, men, the smart thing to do is project balance, and clear headednes.  Subtle change is good, constant change and rewiring, on a good team, I believe rattles confidence, and the ability to get used to each other enough to actually realize potential.

    I think Julien prjects a calm, reasoned approach, which means a ton when building trust with these guys.  I think having that trust is huge.

    Something to ponder.....

    Nobody argues the B's didn't play well down the stretch.  Is it possible that was in large part due to such a compressed schedule allowing for very, very little time for practice or coaching?

    I agree with this and the concept of a steady consistent presence behind the bench in general.  For every time Julien is too slow to make an adjustment, he is also showing his resistence to the reactionary tactics of coaches too worried about their jobs to be patient.

    It is an interesting dichotomy with Tortoralla for sure, as Torts has all the tenets of a short-term coach -- emotional, critical, reactionary.  Torts works great with a new environment and gets the most out of his guys when they buy into the system, but I question whether he could ever be a long term coach with any team, because he style just doesn't seem sustainable.  Suddenly key players are faltering and the Rangers are getting beat in their bread and butter areas -- shot blocking, toughness, net-front position, cycling the puck.  Torts is pointing out that his players 'stink' while Julien remains calm and steady.  I predict the Seguin breakthrough soon...in a big way.

    That would be ironic for many on this board ripping the coach at a time when he's the least able to influence his team.

    CJ has definitely earned back the vote of confidence.  Torts is being outcoached and the rangers are being out played.  Awesome and fun to see.

    That's the second biggest reason I hope the Bruins close this out in 4.  A few good practices in a row is something I don't think has happened all season.

    I had mentioned this a few weeks back, IMO it was a big factor especially when you practice a system.

    We were wrong about Claude. Claude was wrong about not playing rookies. All is forgiven ... as long as they're not playing 90% defense.

    Claude has implimented his system over the years. It works. The talent is there. The conditioning is there. It doesn't work when no-one (or more than a few) are not executing.

    The execution is lacking when there are too many games in few nights or in the dog days of the season. But Claude is constantly on them in practise and in games with the system.

    When the time comes to play, when the desire and the motivation are there, the Bruins go into their system and they can beat anyone over a 7 game series.

    1.) break-outs are impeccable. 2.)  forecheck is tenacious. 3.) their cycling is amazing. 4.) their positioning is intuitive. 5.) their shooting is sharp. 6.) their playmaking sublime.

    Claude Julien gets credit for 1,2,3,and 4. The players are responsible for 5 and 6.

    5 and 6 is enhanced and mutliplied if you take care of 1,2,3, and 4 first.

    Hats off to Claude.

    He looks like Ward just told him he's supposed to back check.

    Rather than having to draw up a bunch of different diagrams, Ward is just using the same one for the penalty kill and the powerplay.  

    And it's working.  They consistently kill off those 2 minutes without a score.

    All joking aside Fletch, if the Bruins can continue to play games with zero goals scored by either side on special teams, I really like their chances to win.

    ...and to think that a week ago this team was right  on death's door. Coaching staff definitely deserve the kudos.

    Agreed.  Being better 5 on 5 is far more sustainable than being powerplay specialists and relying on the refs for your chances...ahem...Vancouver...

    Yes Claude and "the we" both have been wrong.

    The difference ? 

    The higher success rate of being wrong by "the we".
