Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Evan Grossman at NHL.com,
It happens all the time. New coach, new attitude, new results.
It happened in New York when the Islanders hired Ted Nolan. The tide turned across town when the Rangers brought Tom Renney on board. Columbus is buzzing with Ken Hitchcock teaching the Jackets how to play, just like the culture shifted when the Carolina Hurricanes hooked up with Peter Laviolette.
The Boston Bruins are hoping that first-year bench boss Claude Julien brings a similar reversal of fortune. The first order of business, right at the top of Julien’s “to do” list, is always to change the culture.
“I don’t know if there’s a challenge, but the one thing you do want to do is establish an identity for this hockey club and we certainly want to have a better year this year,” Julien told NHL.com.
