New Look Lightning

Part of the reason I picked the Lightning to finish 7th in the East is the addition of Guy Boucher behind the bench.  Boucher has succeeded at every level that he has coached at. As an assistant coach for Rimouski of the Q, they won the President Cup and went the Memorial Cup. He became head coach of Drummondville in 2006, and led them to their best season and to the Memorial Cup in 2008-09. Last season with the Bulldogs, Boucher won the coach of the year and took Hamilton to 115 points, their highest in franchise history. Unlike with the Dogs last year where a lot of talented players were playing in Montreal, the Tampa Bay Lightning have three of the best in the game in Stamkos, Lecavalier and St. Louis.

Now on a personal note, he looks like  a bad guy from an older action movie. I don’t if it’s the scar on his face or just his face in general; but I can’t think of it and it’s driving me nuts. $1000 to whoever names it.
