Montreal Canadiens fire Claude Julien and Kirk Muller

Julien was not the problem in Montreal. He had the Canadiens playing a solid team game at a high level on a regular basis. The problem is Bergevin and his failure to build a roster. Price is still the league's best goaltender and the Weber deal worked out well but the cupboard is pretty empty otherwise. They essentially have a forward group that would at best be pretty decent 3rd line material on any other team in their division.
