Didn't Bylsma once benefit from this exact move?

This will be an interesting beta-test of whether the Sabres should've made this move.

Regardless of what happens there, we should have made this move. We're either idiotic or cowardly not to have

I don't believe we could have made this move. 1st place Montreal, historic franchise, rival of the team that just gave you the walking papers OR a rebuilding job in Buffalo. In this case it is less about Buffalo and more the fact you can stick it to your former employer immediately. If you are Julien, what is not to love about that opportunity?

We could have best them to the punch. McKenzie reported that Montreal requested permission to talk to Julien on Sunday.

Think Phil is right here. I didn't think Julien was going to sign anywhere until the offseason anyways, I gotta believe it was the allure of Montreal and got him

I'm really contributing the conversation here. 

 

Still love that this is the second time this has happened in MTL. Fire Therrien, hire Julien...

Just think, if Mon wins the Cup this will be the second time Therrien is fired mid-season and then his replacement leads a team to a Cup.

 

Also enough already with the DD bashing.  He isn't going anywhere.  Move on.

Normal reaction to Therrien firing and Julien hiring. Belief was Therrien was starting to lose the room and Julien too good to pass on.

I'm sad. But if the Habs were knocking, there was no way Julien would have picked us over them.
He's French, and how better to piss on the Bruins.

I'll be mad if Dan is fired in the summer and we get Therrien.
Neanderthal coach.

You guys realize this move pretty much guarantees the Habs will be good for awhile?

They have a lot of old players. They'll be good as long as Price is good

I'm not so sure. Their lineup is starting to play like it did without price last year, but there's no "wait til price comes back" this season.

Their forward corps is not good. Very good top three forwards and nine third/fourth line guys.

I don't anticipate the Habs being a huge roadblock by the time we're good, whenever that is.

And yeah I'm not too interested in Therrien

Keefe is cureently HC of the Toronto Marlies. I don't watch Marlies games or claim to know much about him, but I've heard he is heavily offensive-minded and his teams produce solid possession numbers. There was a little buzz for him back when the Avs fired Roy. Maybe a little more buzz out there now for Vegas. He's young- 36. Viewed as a fresh-start, out of left field type of guy that could be the next great thing or could flop due to inexperience.

Wouldn't be surprised if the make a move for Duchene, but Julien over Therrien pushed back their decline by two years
