Lemaire is a very good coach . One of the best . He just didn't have the teams to go farther ( Wilds editions )

Look at the team he had , when they went in the conference finals , only at the 3 th season of the Wilds ;

I suppose that if your criteria for a replacement for Gainey is an experienced francophone then Lemaire would be a good fit.
