from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes at the St. Petersburg Times, Here is what former Devils and Wild coach Jacques Lemaire said about the criticism of Lightning coach Guy Boucher from Versus commentators Mike Milbury, Keith Jones and Pierre McGuire Wednesday night about the team’s 1-3-1 trapping system, which they said makes for such boring hockey the Lightning and Boucher should be embarrassed and even “punished.”
“Myself, I laugh at this,” Lemaire told the St. Petersburg Times in a phone interview. “I laugh at it this because are we supposed to coach as we please the people who are announcing the games or make comments on the games? Is that a new style or what? Do we have to please Milbury when we coach? It’s the first time I hear of this.”
If anyone knows about criticism, it is Lemaire.
