Recent Cup-winning coaches John Tortorella and Peter Laviolette were both in their first NHL job. I don't understand how getting fired by some other NHL team has to be a pre-requisite for getting hired by Montreal.
If you're mad that Carbo doesn't have any coaching experience, that's also wrong, he was an assistant for a few years in Montreal and has held various gigs in Dallas after 20 years of playing in the league. He is also a Jack Adams Trophy finalist and lead a team to first place in the Eastern Conference last year, and has now coached over 200 games in the NHL.
You can say whatever you want to justify it... in the end, I don't think Carbs is the right man for the job. I don't agree with the decisions he makes, I don't agree with his lack of communication with the players, I don't agree with his after game comments to the press, and I don't agree with his system.
