Francois Allaire the goaltending coach who helped develop the “Butterfly” style of netminding called it quits with the Toronto Maple Leafs today. Amid the turmoil of a NHL lockout and the players being unable to communicate with coaches, Francois Allaire let the media know what he thought of leaving the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The three-time Stanley Cup Champion with the Montreal Canadiens (1986, 1993) and the Anaheim Ducks (2007) had this to say.
(Quotes from National Post)
“To be honest, I don’t think the Leafs need a goalie coach,”
“I think they have enough of them. They have two or three guys who were making decisions with the goalies. In the NHL, that’s not the way it works.
“If that’s the way they want to operate, then I’m not there.”
