    its getting to the point where coaches will not want to coach in jersey or boston, because they are fired so frequently.

    Per team policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

    Bochenski was acquired by the Bruins from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Kris Versteeg and a conditional draft pick. Bochenski appeared in 31 games for the Bruins, tallying 11 goals and 11 assists.

    Originally selected by Ottawa in the seventh round (233rd overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Bochenski played one season with the Senators before being traded to Chicago.

    Bochenski has played in 81 career regular season games and has tallied 21 goals and 20 assists in NHL action.

    Where does it show that??

    The only thing i can find is-

    "According to the paper, the potential list includes: Scott Gordon (coach of the AHL's Providence Bruins), Claude Julien (former coach of New Jersey and Montreal), Randy Cunneyworth (coach of the AHL's Rochester Americans), Mike Milbury (the man who last coached the Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals), Ted Donato (coach of Harvard), and John Paddock (former Winnipeg/Phoenix coach). "

    I think you could be right.  Its rather unfortunate, too, because NJ is my team, and Boston is a cool team.  At the moment, it doesn't seem like it will be too bad a thing for NJ, as they seem to want to promote John MacLean from within the organization.  Last I heard, anyway.

     They still wouldn't win the Cup!

    Tenkrat can get out of his contract if he signs with an NHL team so he may still come back.

    Well said Habs =)

  12. CaptainAvery says:

    Never cared for him when he took over the Habs, I considered him another Michel Therien or Alain Vigneault during there turfs with the Habs, he never brought nothing to the Canadiens and obviously couldn't stick it out with the Devils as well, and I don't see him bringing a cup to Beantown anytime soon either.
