Jacques Demers on Les Francs Tireurs

Goes from an abusive relationship with his dad, who was a janitor that rented his furniture and Demers lost everything when he died, goes from being an analphabet, goes from being a coca-cola truck driver, goes from being fired 4 times in 20 months when it was his daughters birthday and somehow ends up at the head of the Canadiens.

Man is wise, this man is wise. All that needs to be said.

Turns out all these bad experiences prepared him for coaching, and he gives example that one of his player came up to him and told him his girlfriend was pregnant, and this player had 2 kids and a wife. Jacques helped him (don't remember full details if any).

JD: "Les Demers sont toughs!"
