If there is a coach in the QMJHL that will help Hab fans forget Boucher,Jodoin is the man for the job.Hamilton has a really good coach in Clement to teach the youngsters and prepare them for the NHL.Great signing again by Pierre Gauthier.

I'm going to give Jodoin the benefit of the doubt and see what he can do in Hamilton, but I'll respectfully disagree with you on the issue of making us forget about Boucher. Jodoin has been around the Habs organization before, so he's not an unknown and he doesn't come with the same hype as Boucher. Rightly or wrongly, Boucher was revered by many fans because he came in with a new and inventive style of coaching and because many people saw him as the next hope of bringing the Habs back to the top of the league, not just qualifying us for the playoffs 3 out of every 4 years. Jodoin to me has some decent qualities as a coach, but does the prospect of him being the next coach of the Habs excite me? Not at all. I would much rather have Cunneyworth succeed JM than see Jodoin come in next. Ultimately, if the Habs wanted to make fans forget about Boucher, the obvious move would have been to offer the job to Patrick Roy, which may or may not have happened. Like him or not, Roy would have been in the headlines and being an unknown entity himself (as an NHL/AHL coach), he would have generated much more excitement than Jodoin, who was almost unable to find a job he wanted in North America.

Yup, he's gone for a while now.

I think the Randys did a marvellous job in Hamilton last season, leading the team within one game of the Calder Cup finals. Going to be interesting to see how Jodoin deals and develops our prospects down in Hamilton, with Leblanc joining Avtsin in Hamilton.
