Are you sure? If they don't fire Julien he will make a case for re-signing Ryder, and given PC's track record he will even give him a raise. Then they'll run out of cap space to re-sign Kaberle.
- Dave Lewis is off the Bruins payroll.
- Claude Julien has two more years on his contract.
As long as the Bruins are at least in the running for the playoffs (right, just playoffs, not necessarily for winning the cup) PC won't fire Julien. As long as there are people out there who believe stuff like "we're one of just five clubs who made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs two years in a row" or "we were just one goal away from the conference finals in 2010" there will be no changes, just the same old excuses.

[QUOTE]I have yet to bash Claude Julien. My cousin in New Jersey keeps asking me why I don't see what he has been telling me. He said Lou cut him loose with the best record a month before the playoffs becuase the team would struggle when they ahd the lead. If not for all-world goaltending that good team would have a much worse record...Kind of sounds familiar.For a defensive coach how many shots have we allowed to the Sabres and Islanders?

Very true. But as I said, too many people accept mediocrity. I have to admit that the team has improved since the Dave Lewis days, but it has also failed big time at the most inopportune times - not just three game 7s in a row, that awful OT loss in Montreal in early January is another prime example.
I wouldn't want to play for a coach who seems to be incapable of making adjustments.
I wouldn't want to play for a coach who's blatantly favoring players - can we call it "double standards" when it comes to Julien's special treatment of Michael Ryder?
I wouldn't want to play for a coach who gets outcoached on a regular basis.
