    I don’t know. He kept a good team good but couldn’t do much in the playoffs. Making a bad team good and succeeding in the playoffs is a much more difficult challenge.

    At least he’s actually been an NHL coach though. The B’s like to hire guys with only a year’s experience in the minors so this is an improvement.

    Its official…. “Lewis, the former head coach of the Detroit Red Wings, will be officially named Boston’s new head coach in a media conference at 1pm et on Wednesday. “


    Not sure if its a good or bad move, but considering the alternatives (Quinn)…I guess its a pretty good choice in helping develop the younger players in the B’s lineup.

    Anyone taking bets on how long it will be before he gets fired on a whim?

    I think Lewis would be a better coach with Joe Thornton than without him. Good luck
