I'm hoping the best and not saying a change wasn't needed. I was just hoping for more of an up tempo type style of coach. It's actually what Boston went to after he left. He has also run good offensively talented players out of town if they weren't also good defensively see Seguin and Kessel both he didn't like their defensive play. I'm sure it'll start out with great enthusiasm. We'll see after 20 games in. Go Habs !!! "He's been preaching a lot of offense," left wing Max Pacioretty said. "You know, take care of your end, but once we have the puck we don't want to give it back. And in my mind that's offensive thinking. A good defense is holding onto the puck in the offensive zone and not just giving it away, not just putting it on net for no reason, and those are some things that he already harps [on], so I was excited to hear that." https://www.nhl.com/news/canadiens-coach-claude-julien-focusing-on-positives/c-286879344 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
