  1. Things are moving pretty fast in the CH organization. Julien, Muller & Waite are replaced with a new head coach, a assistant coach & now a goal tender coach just one guy is missing for a clean slate the General Manager he goes by the name of Bergevin!!! I know it’s speculation however his track record warrants his dismissal … so if that’s the case mr Molson will have to handle this one. The question is who replaces Bergevin ??? Once again I have to put my two cents worth again so my choice is Joel Bouchard & for cause he personally knows Ducharme & most of the organization Having played in the NHL he knows the game inside out plus he has developed over the year his people skills & the big plus is having worked in the media he has the necessary tools to handle french & english reporters & whatever the media throws his way. Johnny Rougeau once told me ” to become a good hockey player it takes two things excellent talent & a good attitude” so I guess Price could be on the hit list…thanks for the read.

  2. Thanks for your comment! You are not alone in wondering if Bouchard will be elevated at some point, and there are those who have speculated if management might eventually be his track. Not sure if he’ll replace Bergevin. He may end up somewhere behind the bench first.
