Claude Julien said : “When you look at the whole season, it’s like you play every second night (and) it may not look like much now but, as the season goes on, it will make a big difference,” “You don’t want to wear your players down when you don’t have to. When you have good depth and the balance of your group is pretty good, everyone’s accepted it. There may be games where you have to lean on some guys more than normal but at least when you’re ready to do that, the guys will be fresh enough to do that. We’re trying to be smart here from start to finish” External link

Claude Julien said : “There’s a couple of things,” “As a coach, you identify confidence vs. cockiness. And he’s not cocky, he’s very confident. But, at the same time, you can tell that when you talk to him he really wants to learn, he wants to get better. So he is confident, but he also knows that he’s got an opportunity here to get better as a defenceman, especially in this league playing against the best players in the world. So I think that’s where we like where he’s at right now is that he comes in with that little bit of swagger, but also that understanding that I still have a lot to learn and he’s very eager to learn as well. So that’s where when you get to know an individual you know exactly where he stands” External link

Claude Julien added : “Our inkling on it — and there’s no guarantee — is there’s a guy who’s barely played in the last two years because of injuries,” “So the team that picks him up has to basically keep him up with their NHL team. So he was picked up by Florida. We don’t know what they’re thinking or what they want to do with him. We were hoping to keep him and, unfortunately, he was picked up by them and maybe for his sake to be an NHL player — if he’s on their roster — it’s an advantage to him. But that’s what the rules of this league are all about and you got to respect that. You know we’re going to wish him good luck. He’s a good individual and he’s had — like I said — the last couple of years have been tough on him. So hopefully he finds his game” External link

So that gives you a little bit of consistency and what we’re doing is we’re trying to work with other lines as well to hopefully create some consistency and some chemistry there as well. There’s no doubt that when you’ve got a line that you know that they’re successful, you know what you’re going to get out of them, it helps a lot” External link

Claude Julien said : “It’s not just necessarily (for) a one-timer,” “He’s got a real good wrist shot and a good hard shot with a quick release, so he can use both. But it puts him on his forehand to play that side on the power play, so I think we’re hoping that he’ll be able to utilize that shot of his and the positioning of being on his off-side, I guess — if you can put it that way — to get that shot off. But certainly that’s something that we looked at and we hope he can use that shot to his advantage” External link

But at the end of the day, like I said, we were one of the teams that had the most shots on net per game. We were one of the top teams there. There’s a lot of things offensively that we did well. I think defensively it was just a matter of, like I said, getting bigger, stronger and a little bit more refined in our D zone.

You hope again that Anderson can help us and I’m talking about just guys that we’ve added to our group that was already producing. So those are all areas that I think excites us as a coaching staff.

So it’s not about: Oh, it wasn’t me that scored. He wants to score, he wants to help, but he’s just as happy with anybody else and even more so with the win. I think they get to a stage in their career where they say: You know, I’d like to win a championship and so I can’t do it on my own.

Paul Bron said ( about Claude Julien ) : “People ask all the time: ‘Were you healthy, do you have a head injury?’ ” “To the point where I was starting to doubt myself. I know I had no injury, I know I was fine. I just was in a funk. It was a hard time getting out of it. I was working with the coaches, I was working with Dom (Ducharme), I was working with Claude. We were doing video. Five, six, seven games before I got hurt I know I was getting there, I know my game was turning around. I was picking up my timing back. I remember the game against Boston (a 5-4 win over the Bruins), I remember our team how hard we played against Washington (the 5-2 win in the game he was injured). That was a big week for our team.

Claude Julien said : “When you look at the whole season, it’s like you play every second night (and) it may not look like much now but, as the season goes on, it will make a big difference,” “You don’t want to wear your players down when you don’t have to. When you have good depth and the balance of your group is pretty good, everyone’s accepted it. There may be games where you have to lean on some guys more than normal but at least when you’re ready to do that, the guys will be fresh enough to do that. We’re trying to be smart here from start to finish” External link

montrealgazette Sunday, January 17, 2021 8:29:00 PM EAT

Claude Julien said : “There’s a couple of things,” “As a coach, you identify confidence vs. cockiness. And he’s not cocky, he’s very confident. But, at the same time, you can tell that when you talk to him he really wants to learn, he wants to get better. So he is confident, but he also knows that he’s got an opportunity here to get better as a defenceman, especially in this league playing against the best players in the world. So I think that’s where we like where he’s at right now is that he comes in with that little bit of swagger, but also that understanding that I still have a lot to learn and he’s very eager to learn as well. So that’s where when you get to know an individual you know exactly where he stands” External link

Claude Julien added : “Our inkling on it — and there’s no guarantee — is there’s a guy who’s barely played in the last two years because of injuries,” “So the team that picks him up has to basically keep him up with their NHL team. So he was picked up by Florida. We don’t know what they’re thinking or what they want to do with him. We were hoping to keep him and, unfortunately, he was picked up by them and maybe for his sake to be an NHL player — if he’s on their roster — it’s an advantage to him. But that’s what the rules of this league are all about and you got to respect that. You know we’re going to wish him good luck. He’s a good individual and he’s had — like I said — the last couple of years have been tough on him. So hopefully he finds his game” External link

Claude Julien said : “I think the one thing that’s good about that is you know what they can bring on a nightly basis,” “They’ve proven themselves over the last couple of years to be actually one of the better lines five-on-five at producing. … They really do well in regards to that. So that gives you a little bit of consistency and what we’re doing is we’re trying to work with other lines as well to hopefully create some consistency and some chemistry there as well. There’s no doubt that when you’ve got a line that you know that they’re successful, you know what you’re going to get out of them, it helps a lot” External link

Claude Julien said : “There’s no doubt right now that’s a real big weapon that he has in his arsenal that we hope he’ll be able to use more and more as he progresses here,” “But certainly a guy that can score a lot of goals if he uses that shot properly” External link

montrealgazette Sunday, January 10, 2021 4:37:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said : “It’s not just necessarily (for) a one-timer,” “He’s got a real good wrist shot and a good hard shot with a quick release, so he can use both. But it puts him on his forehand to play that side on the power play, so I think we’re hoping that he’ll be able to utilize that shot of his and the positioning of being on his off-side, I guess — if you can put it that way — to get that shot off. But certainly that’s something that we looked at and we hope he can use that shot to his advantage” External link

Claude Julien said : “I don’t know if there’s really an issue with the system more than there was maybe an issue with the finish,” “For example, if you want to look at analytics and those kind of stats, we created a lot five-on-five and, at the end of the day, we just couldn’t score enough” External link

montrealgazette Friday, October 23, 2020 2:52:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said : “Defensively, I think we’ve solidified our back end where with size and strength and experience we’re going to be a tougher team to score against,” “So those kind of things will take care of itself without having to change the system. But at the end of the day, like I said, we were one of the teams that had the most shots on net per game. We were one of the top teams there. There’s a lot of things offensively that we did well. I think defensively it was just a matter of, like I said, getting bigger, stronger and a little bit more refined in our D zone. There’s going to be some small adjustments, but no we’re not planning on changing our system” External link

montrealgazette Friday, October 23, 2020 2:52:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said : “When you look at wins and losses, teams are losing by a goal and it’s a break here, it’s a break there,” “So it doesn’t take much. We don’t have to explode everything and then start from scratch. I think we just have to take advantage of the depth that we have and use it to our advantage. We talked about being a little bit bigger, so maybe now we get a little bit better along the walls” External link

Claude Julien said ( about Josh Anderson ) : “I think overall, no matter what we’ve had in our lineup, we’ve been a decent five-on-five team in generating things but hadn’t always been easy as far as finishing, scoring goals,” “Well, we’ve got Toffoli now that adds to that goal-scoring. You hope again that Anderson can help us and I’m talking about just guys that we’ve added to our group that was already producing. So those are all areas that I think excites us as a coaching staff. I think it’s exciting our fans right now and, hopefully, what we have left now is get a season going and be able to showcase what we have” External link

So it’s not about: Oh, it wasn’t me that scored. He wants to score, he wants to help, but he’s just as happy with anybody else and even more so with the win. I think they get to a stage in their career where they say: You know, I’d like to win a championship and so I can’t do it on my own.

Claude Julien said : “I thought Pauly was starting to turn the corner there just before the injury,” “I know he had a bit of a slow start. He suffered that concussion at the end of last year and trained hard during the course of the summer. He wasn’t playing bad, it just was maybe a bit of a slower start. But he was finding his game there near the time that he got injured. He’s one of those guys that for the most part competes hard.

Claude Julien added : “I think we lost a few games before we started winning that we played well enough to win,” “So this is important that you stick with what you believe in and know that when you’re doing the right things that you’re going to get success. Sometimes it doesn’t come right away, but eventually it does. Right now we won I think four of our last five games, so we got to stick with it. We got a lot of catching up to do because of that eight-game winless streak, so we’re conscientious of that and sticking with it” External link

Paul Bron said ( about Claude Julien ) : “People ask all the time: ‘Were you healthy, do you have a head injury?’ ” “To the point where I was starting to doubt myself. I know I had no injury, I know I was fine. I just was in a funk. It was a hard time getting out of it. I was working with the coaches, I was working with Dom (Ducharme), I was working with Claude. We were doing video. Five, six, seven games before I got hurt I know I was getting there, I know my game was turning around. I was picking up my timing back. I remember the game against Boston (a 5-4 win over the Bruins), I remember our team how hard we played against Washington (the 5-2 win in the game he was injured). That was a big week for our team. The (slow) start was what it is, but it’s a long year and that stuff happens” External link
