"The decision to remove Michel from his coaching duties was a hard one because I have lots of respect for him", Montreal GM Marc Bergevin said. I came to the conclusion that our team needed a new energy, a new voice, a new direction.

Julien, the B's all-time winningest coach and 2009 Jack Adams victor, had a 26-23-6 record with the Bruins this season. Julien was just fired last week as coach of the Bruins, with whom he won the Stanley Cup in 2011 and was the longest-tenured coach until last week. He was their coach from 2003-06 - ironically, he also replaced Therrien when he got the job in '03 - and posted a record of 72-62-10-15.

The Montreal Canadiens announced Tuesday that Julien has been named the head coach of the Bruins' rival.

In his second stint with the Canadiens, Therrien coached three-plus seasons and made the postseason thrice, going as far as the conference finals.

Unfortunately, Boston and Montreal are not scheduled to meet again this regular season, but there's always a chance that the Bruins can face off against their former coach in a potential playoff matchup. He spent the last 10 seasons in Boston and became the winningest coach in franchise history.

Meanwhile Therrien and the Canadiens have been struggling mightily this season since starting at a blistering pace, normalizing to a.500 team. Compiling a record of 141-109-16 in four seasons in Hull, he led his team to the Memorial Cup in 1997. Michel Therrien ranks 4th (behind Toe Blake, Dick Irvin and Scotty Bowman) on the Canadiens' all-time list for games (542) and wins (271). Therrien was in his fifth season of his second tour of duty as Canadiens coach.
