Claude Julien said : “As his career moved into the later stages, he was smart enough to adapt his training to what he needed to do to continue to be effective,” “He was always big, strong and tough to play against. As he got older, he changed his training into maybe working a little bit more on quick feet and that kind of stuff” External link

Claude Julien said : “A lot of us have kids that go to school and they’re getting tested a couple of times a week as well to make sure that they’re safe and they’re keeping us safe as well,” “So they have protocols. Obviously, the families are very respectful of staying away from going inside of stores and all that stuff and ordering online and those kind of things. So it’s really not just the players, it’s the families themselves that are making the sacrifice right now to keep everybody safe and, at the same time, trying to make this pandemic go away as soon as we can” External link

Claude Julien said : “When you struggle, you hope there’s something that sparks you (and) the second half of the game brought that,” “The best thing that could have happened to us was to have the goal that was disallowed count and win the game with two to four seconds left, but we have to take that second half of the game and build on that going to Winnipeg and find away to turn things around” External link

Claude Julien said : “It’s a matter of simplifying our game and playing with confidence, and making things happen,” “Some of the breakaways we give were because we’re playing high-risk hockey. We’re making some decisions that are high-risk, and it ends up costing us” External link

Claude Julien said : “There’s nothing that should be acceptable. To accept certain things is not being very committed to wining and I think we expect more out of ourselves and it’s disappointing tonight because we had our legs, we had our opportunities. Had we been sharp mentally and really cut down on some of those mistakes we could have won this game. But we shot ourselves in the foot with those kind of mistakes, so that’s on us. I don’t think we should sit here and say it’s acceptable after being off for a week” External link

Claude Julien said : “Carey’s in nets tonight, yes,” “We’ve looked at the schedule at the beginning of the year, so all that stuff we kind of have an idea of what want to do. Again, there’s always room for changes or to adapt or to make some changes along the way. But right now we understand the schedule and you guys should understand the reason we got Jake Allen was exactly for that so that we could make sure we’ve got two good goaltenders ready to go on any night” External link

Claude Julien said : “We made a couple of adjustments after the first period and then it just seemed like in the second period we slowly started seeing our team kind of pick up the pace of the game,” “Started making plays, started playing with confidence again. And then in the third period I thought we played more the way we need to play. Our forecheck was much better, we were moving the puck quickly and our forecheck created a lot of turnovers. We had shots at the net, we were crashing the net and we found a way to win a hockey game. It’s obviously a win that we really needed right now, so it feels good going into that break that we come off a win” External link

Claude Julien said : “Let’s not kid ourselves … you come out of here with another loss — it’s four losses in the last five games — you got a whole week to sit on that,” “It makes a huge difference. This win here is one of those wins that you need at the right time of the schedule. This is huge for us. Not that we can relax … not at all. I think we realize we got to keep working and we got a lot of work to do and we’ll do that this week. But it puts the mindset in a much better position than had it gone the other way” External link

Claude Julien added : “Unfortunately, we don’t control the other teams and we can’t control other situations,” “Between doing things right, you hope the league is staying on top of things to try to stay as safe as you and that’s what your’e seeing right now. I think overall we’ve been very fortunate in Canada. It doesn’t mean we’re immune from it. There’s a few cases here and there, but hopefully it stays under control and the league continues to do the things that are necessary to keep it under control” External link

Claude Julien added : “We didn’t have everybody going tonight,” “This was our fourth game in six nights and sometimes fatigue sets in when you get those challenges. But the main thing is is you find ways to win hockey games and I think we were good enough in that third at defending that we were able to win that hockey game. But no doubt with four games in six nights a little fatigue there. At the same time, a day’s rest (on Sunday) and probably two good days of practice is something we also need. Practising certain things here that’s going to help us get back on track here” External link

Part of it is if we’re going to go that way with some young centres — and that’s the way we feel we need to go — there’s some growing pains along the way. That’s one area where we’re paying the price at times with not starting with the puck. But other teams have other issues that they have to deal with as well. So that’s our challenge right now and we’re just going to keep plugging away at it and try and get better at it” External link

We’re trying to minimize that kind of stuff. I know that here with our team we’ve really taken a lot of precautions and I know so far — knock on wood — in Canada we’ve been fortunate and we hope to continue to be fortunate in that area here. And I’m talking about hockey teams here. So hopefully that continues. But it’s never good news anytime anybody gets it, it’s not good news” External link

And, at the end of the day, we’ve made sure to keep those guys part of our group and I’ve said that before. They’re always dressing in the same room, they’re always part of the main group, where other teams have their taxi squads separate from the main team. We’re making sure that everybody’s feeling like they’re part of our group and that’s the way we chose to keep things going in regards to all the players that are with us right now” External link

Claude Julien said : “He’s been put with a first-year player and he’s handled it well,” “The first-year player’s a good player, but there’s still some growing pains in a player that’s in his first year. (Kulak’s) had to be reliable and he’s done just that. There’s times he’s been on the ice against other team’s top lines and he’s handled it well. I think so far he’s had a really good start to the season and the inconsistency (from last season) we have yet to see this year. So it’s a good sign of a young player maturing” External link

montrealgazette Saturday, January 30, 2021 10:31:00 PM EAT

Claude Julien said : “I think, at the end of the day, he came in with lots of confidence, we said that. We liked what we saw. This guy played in the KHL, so he’s played more or less pro hockey now for a few years. Although he’s a young player, he has that experience that’s helped him. But let’s be honest, too. This kid is making mistakes like everybody else. For a young kid he’s handling himself well, but there’s still some things we’re working with him to make him an even better player. But he has all the attributes to be that. He’s had a good start to the season for a young player, but it’s going to get tougher here as we move forward. So that’s why I’m saying we got to keep working with this guy because he’s got to improve himself individually as much as the game as we move forward is going to improve as well” External link

Claude Julien said : “But I’ll be honest with you, from the time we were in the bubble in Toronto and even now, since the season started, once the game starts you’re so involved in the game and your focus is there that for the most part it’s not holding us back,” “Don’t get me wrong here, because I would love to have our fans back in the stands, in the rink. We’d love to have that anywhere. It’s what makes the game a lot of fun. But, in the meantime, we’ve had to adjust with no fans because we don’t have a choice.

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

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.

Claude Julien said : “They looked frustrated or one of them looked frustrated tonight, the referee,” “He should have been. Because tonight, to me, it was embarrassing. I can’t say anything else. We take responsibility for some of our stuff and when we’re not good I’m going to stand up here and say we weren’t good enough tonight. Well, tonight we had to beat two teams and it was tough” External link

montrealgazette Sunday, February 16, 2020 7:48:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said : “You hope that leaving the guys at home today and just coming in tonight will give us a chance to be a little bit more fresh than normal,” “So we’re going to hope that our guys have some jump and, again, sharpness because this is a team that doesn’t give up much. So if we’re going to make mistakes and end up seeing the puck go in the back of our net it’s going to be hard to play catch-up hockey against Dallas” External link

montrealgazette Sunday, February 16, 2020 3:56:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said : “We need some guys to score some goals for us and this time of year it’s not always pretty,” “So we got to be ready to get our noses dirty. We need to have a nose for the net when we put as many pucks as we can with guys going to the net. If you put pucks at the net all night long, you’re going to have 40 shots. If you have nobody there, you’re wasting your time. So I think it’s important that we have a good net-front presence and tonight’s one of those nights where you’re playing a team that doesn’t give up much. Both goaltenders are playing well for them. The only way to score goals on these guys is to get some traffic there. So whether it’s tips, rebounds, screens if we’re going to shoot with nobody there, they’re going to stop it” External link

Claude Julien said ( about David Pastrnak ) : “Shows what kind of player he is,” “In David’s case, he’s always had to play with the Bergerons and Marchands and now Pastrnak. He often slides under the radar. But he’s an unbelievable player. If it wasn’t for some of those other guys — I think he’s appreciated, but there’s no doubt he’d be more noticed than he is right now” External link

Claude Julien said : “When you lose (Shea) Weber, whose obviously a big part of your power play and other teams respect him when he’s out there, you have to find another replacement,” “So we’re going to try Mete. He’s got good lateral movement and all that stuff. Chiarot has a better shot than Mete, but Mete has better movement probably than Ben. You got to deal with your personnel and your players and try and find solutions. So that’s what we’re trying to do” External link

Claude Julien said : “At times, I thought we were playing fairly well and we had chances to shoot at the net and we looked for other plays,” “We need to shoot the puck a little bit more. We need to go to the net more and probably be a little hungrier in that part of it. As for the rest, we did some good things and we were competing hard, but we were not good enough to win” External link

montrealgazette Thursday, February 13, 2020 7:48:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said ( about Mark Recchi ) : “The biggest thing is, I said it before, he reminds me of Mark Recchi,” “When you’re a younger player you’re coming in and you’re proving yourself, it’s important that you have success as an individual. They get to a stage of their career they kind of make that a second thought vs. the team being first. Right now he’s playing, like I said before, he’s so excited when anybody scores on our team. 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. It’s going to take a whole team and I think he’s got the right attitude right now for what we need in our room and on our team” External link

montrealgazette Monday, February 10, 2020 10:08:00 PM EAT

Claude Julien said : “I don’t know. I don’t have the results. So all I’m saying is that he’s not in a position to play these next two games and we’re going to leave him behind (when the team travels to Boston and Pittsburgh later in the week) and obviously probably not this weekend, either (when the Dallas Stars visit the Bell Centre on Saturday). But it’s hard for me to stand here and tell you something that I don’t know. That’s why we don’t have any more news on him we’re still waiting for more of the results after the swelling (goes down)” External link

So I can’t just think about the Weby injury more than I have to think about what are we going to do now to counter that and how can we keep winning hockey games.

Marc Bergevin said ( about Claude Julien ) : “It’s tricky because I don’t want to say something that it comes across that Claude didn’t do,” “Sometimes the message … coaches talk to the players every day. So it’s a piece of the business in sports, sometimes the message gets stale. It doesn’t mean it’s a completely different message. But now what the guys like with Dom is the message is different, the approach is different” 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

Obviously, the families are very respectful of staying away from going inside of stores and all that stuff and ordering online and those kind of things.

montrealgazette Monday, February 22, 2021 7:49:00 AM EAT

Claude Julien said : “There’s nothing that should be acceptable. To accept certain things is not being very committed to wining and I think we expect more out of ourselves and it’s disappointing tonight because we had our legs, we had our opportunities. Had we been sharp mentally and really cut down on some of those mistakes we could have won this game. But we shot ourselves in the foot with those kind of mistakes, so that’s on us.

Again, there’s always room for changes or to adapt or to make some changes along the way.

Claude Julien said : “We made a couple of adjustments after the first period and then it just seemed like in the second period we slowly started seeing our team kind of pick up the pace of the game,” “Started making plays, started playing with confidence again. And then in the third period I thought we played more the way we need to play. Our forecheck was much better, we were moving the puck quickly and our forecheck created a lot of turnovers. We had shots at the net, we were crashing the net and we found a way to win a hockey game. It’s obviously a win that we really needed right now, so it feels good going into that break that we come off a win” External link

Claude Julien said : “Let’s not kid ourselves … you come out of here with another loss — it’s four losses in the last five games — you got a whole week to sit on that,” “It makes a huge difference. This win here is one of those wins that you need at the right time of the schedule. This is huge for us. Not that we can relax … not at all. I think we realize we got to keep working and we got a lot of work to do and we’ll do that this week. But it puts the mindset in a much better position than had it gone the other way” External link

I think overall we’ve been very fortunate in Canada. It doesn’t mean we’re immune from it. There’s a few cases here and there, but hopefully it stays under control and the league continues to do the things that are necessary to keep it under control” External link

This guy played in the KHL, so he’s played more or less pro hockey now for a few years. Although he’s a young player, he has that experience that’s helped him. But let’s be honest, too. This kid is making mistakes like everybody else. For a young kid he’s handling himself well, but there’s still some things we’re working with him to make him an even better player. But he has all the attributes to be that. He’s had a good start to the season for a young player, but it’s going to get tougher here as we move forward. So that’s why I’m saying we got to keep working with this guy because he’s got to improve himself individually as much as the game as we move forward is going to improve as well” 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.

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
