Looks like Dineen is out in San Diego.  Joel Bouchard hired as Gulls HC.

Replacing Dineen makes no sense does it?  Especially when the coach of the ducks was the mastermind of the worst ducks in history and he keeps his job?  He must have blackmail material to keep from getting fired?  He just doesn't show himself to be any sort of effective, winning professional coach.  I just don't see it.

This organization seems like it's allergic to good coaches.

I've heard Bouchard is good? or well, that Montreal fans seem pretty upset by this. As far as us getting him in this organization it sounds like a win...but where is Dineen going?? This seems very upsetting....

I read someone said nhl teams were talking to him about an assistant position.

Bouchard is good. Montreal are really upset to lose him - he was a potential future NHL head coach. But they are Ducharme now that is likely going to lose the interim tag so who knows how long he would have to wait. He could get to the NHL quicker in Anaheim.

Bookending this on Dineen. He's been hired as the new head coach of the Utica Comets, which is the Devils AHL affiliate. The Devils have some good young forwards in their system that he'll likely get to work with. Lucky them. Still bummed Dineen wasn't retained. Seems like he was doing great with the Gulls this past season despite all the challenges. Groulx had some good things to say about Dineen in his recent Athletic interview.

yeah a little bummed, too. i guess we have someone good with Bouchard. I wonder why we wouldn't have at least extended his contract...or have offered him one of the assistant spots...especially with his history of good special teams coaching...

Hopefully Ward takes over from Dallas this season as an intern. He's not amazing but the Flames at least played decent for him in the bubble a year ago. 

 

 I can't imagine it would be great for the young Ducks to play for one of the worst coaches in league history for yet another year.
