Yeah I don't know why Charron is still with the habs, he did nothing last year and this season is not going that great either.

I want the good Guy!

GUY! GUY! GUY! GUY! GUY! GUY! :handclap:

Carbonneau doesn't want to be an assistant anymore.

Good point.

getting Carbo over here would be awesome but i don't think it'll happen

you never know but i think he's happy in Dallas, he left Montreal to go there so why would he come back all of a sudden

I really don't think he'll be back any time soon... isn't the main reason why he's in Dallas is that his family is there? Unless somehow BG bribes the whole Carb family with one zillion dollars, it's not looking good. Not for an assistant job, anyways.

habsfan19 11-05-2003 08:44 PM

yeah his daughter married Brendan Morrow i think
and like i said, he left MTL for Dallas, if he would've stayed in Montreal he could've been the coach when Therrien was fired but he preffered Dallas

well actually, no, one of the reasons he left was because he WAS"NT going to get the coach job. ya, the family thing sorta played out well for him, but he would of stayed if he had been offered a more meaningful position. youre right, he doesnt want an assistant job

I think it had something to do with the school systems in Quebec. Because Guy is french canadian, his kids needed to attend french school, and he didn't want that to happen.

You are correct. Guy publicly stated for the record that the school language issue was one of the reasons why he left. Basically, one of his kids (a daughter I think) has gone primarily to english schools, and he wanted the kid to finish their schooling in the same language. The good old Ministry of Education said no, citing policy that requires kids of french speaking parents to go to french language schools. Guy appealed it, but it got turned down. He did make a very public statement regarding this in the press. Needless to say the SJB Society were less than impressed.... ;)

Common sense reigns as per usual in Quebec.

However, I remember Carbo making a very public statement hinting that he wanted the job after Gainey was hired. And I took note that he was sitting on the glass at the Bell Centre a couple games ago.

I like Julien though and want to see him succeed.

I liked Carbo as a player and think he is what they call a "good hockey man. " He isn't Scotty Bowman though, nor is he Toe Blake. His presence won't make Juneau younger, Perreault faster or Audette bigger.
We knew going in that this would be a tough year due to about 12M in unwanted contracts. Rivet and Markov have been horrid so far this year,[yes, both of them], I don't think that Carbo's presence would have changed much. There will always be a so-called saviour who we think would make the difference. I like Julien and also hope that he succeeds. I suspect though that when some of our prospects develop and our GM fills some needs by whatever method, Julien won't be around to enjoy it. The guy who perseveres thru the lean years seldom is.

Problem is he'd still be dealing with the same lineup. Some of these players would have Scotty Bowman pulling his hair out. :shakehead
