Mike Felger celebrates Montreal Canadiens hiring Claude Julien

Michael Felger greeted the Montreal Canadiens' hiring of Claude Julien with a round of applause.

Julien is just eight days removed of getting fired as the coach of the Boston Briuns. He'll join Montreal after the team fired Michel Therrien on Tuesday.

"That is beautiful. That's a whopper," Felger said. "All right Montreal, how's your fourth line up there? Get used to seeing a lot more of them. ... When he pounds the crap out of his veteran fourth-line grinders and just puts them into every faceoff situation -- just pounds them and pounds them and wins games, 2-1 -- where's he going to take them to get their fribble?"

Felger then took aim at Montreal, who he called "deplorable."

"One of the reasons they bring him back is because he speaks french, and that's a requirement for them, if you don't know this. In Montreal, still to this day, they require that their coach speak french, so that he can do bi-lingual press conferences. That is important to these a-holes. These are the worst people in North America -- on the planet frankly."

He added: "Do you care about winning a hockey game? Or do you just want to speak French?"
