"I've seen a lot of good systems. (Former Canadiens assistant coach) Clement Jodoin had a good system in Rimouski, but I think Guy's system is good. The puck is always going forward. We make sure the puck never stays in our zone."
The system was obviously a success, because the Bulldogs surprised everyone by reaching the American Hockey League Western Conference final. Boucher, who will join the staff at the development camp later this week, has attracted some attention.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have asked the Canadiens for permission to talk to Boucher about their vacant head coaching job.
"Guy is a great teacher," [Habs prospect Olivier] Fortier said.The repeated mentions of "relentless" from other commentary is starting to make sense. Hope the Jackets are working out hard this offseason -- if Boucher gets the job, conditioning is going to be a big, big issue.
Thanks again to Kathy for the heads up!
