The Bruins may look in a new direction after this season if things don't go well and Lindy Ruff could be a good canidate to replace CJ. Ruff would not be afraid to replace useless coach's like Ward and put some new blood into a team that is flat in too many games this season. Cj is loosing his team and is not very good at incorporating new players into a hard to play Bruins system.
I think he holds back very good Bruins propects and has out lived his time in Boston. The players just don't listen anymore and it is time for change. Cj has been good for his time here but he has not changed with the Bruins new players and his system has been easily figured out by other teams because he is so predicable.
The Bruins are a better team than CJ shows and their game is not being inspired or motivated the way it should be under his system. Players like Looch, Segin amd Horts would be better under a more offensive system and we can all see the results of these good players going to waste under this system. CJ had his time and at the time it was very good but I have to question why good players like Looch, Segin, Horts, Chara, Kelly, Pevs and others have lost their game and CJ can't put a good consistant line up together. Players just don't stop being good players and the Bruins just don't improve on the powerplay unless the coach refuses to change with the players he has, JC will not do that and will not put the players on the ice the Bruins need to score when the time comes.
He has no idea where to play a hall of famer in Jagr in his lineup and with some new blood and possibly more scoring with Soderberg coming in CJ will be more confused. This short season has seen players like Looch and others fall behind some because of no preseason and he has no answer and the the team is disorinted. There is no time to fix this and only the players if they have any heart left can fix it.
If the Bruins can't figure out they have to hit and play hard down low they will be done in the playoffs soon and maybe Management will see the time to bring in a coach like Ruff to this talent moving on is the best for us going forward.
