Julien finally pointing fingers

08:25 AM ET 11.01 | It's no secret that the Bruins are scuffling, though Claude Julien has kept his individual criticism to a minimum. [Julien] is not one of those coaches prone to delivering public criticism of individual players. But after comments yesterday about David Krejci and Nathan Horton, one didn't have to read too far between the lines to get that the coach was being unusually candid in blasting the effort of the two erstwhile stars. Krejci, who might still be bothered by the recent groin strain that caused him to miss three games, has one point (a goal) and a minus-5 rating in seven games. Horton has two goals, three assists and a minus-2 in 10 games with just 14 shots on net.

"Julien finally pointing fingers"

Just remember, Julien, every time you point your finger at someone else, there are three of yours pointing at yourself.

Honestly, i thought he was going to get fired the last two seasons. When a team goes from Champs to bottom of the barrel with basically the same players, that usually means the coach's ****.

Cup hangover, they will be in the playoff spot at the end of the year, and all you need is a chance.

You're probably right, but they need to get their **** together. You can't win a Cup before christmas but you can certainly lose one.

They win the Cup and 10 games in he's back to Clod?

Such is life. People have a "what have you done for me lately" attitude it seems.

I'm going to continue to point out how the Bruins suck. This is directed to all of you who said "This team is built really well for the long haul blablabla". They blow

All they have to do is look at your Devils from last year to know that they can make a run for the playoffs even with a slow start.

Are we really going to judge the defending Stanley Cup champs based on ten games?

Horton hears a boo?

Julien broke the cardinal rule of hockey...never ever EVER criticize a former Oshawa General. Julien is as good as fired.

On the contrary, it did. What's even better is that Parise and Marty will be gone after this year. I've been waiting for this to happen for a long time.

Marty might be gone, Parise isn't going anywhere, trust me on this. I guess we will be mediocre like you guys for a few years.

The Bruins suck right now. I predict a win tonight against the Sens, and a big win against the Leafs. They will come around and go on a big run, that's for sure.

Don Cherry kissed Bobby Orr's behind every day he coached and his treatment of this Oshawa General didn't stop Sinden from canning his gluteus maximus.
