I don't see why so many posters have to always put words in people mouths and make fun of them for making a valid thread. I didn't say he will be the next d-coach and bring back every other ex hab player to the team.
I like Melanson, and and no Chelios isn't ready for being a head coach and Scotty isn't a bad idea either to have in the organization but he seems to be happy with his son in Chicago...
The Habs have issues to attend to and I just wrote that Chelios would be a good fit in that positions. He may not play next season and I don't see the harm in making him an offer if he want's to continue his career in the NHL after his playing career...
BTW, Chelios owns a restaurant in Detroit. So? He's only working in Montreal.. He can give the responsibilities to Someone else..
NHL career as coach > running a restaurant
Oh and BTW Bowman, Robinson, and Roy ALL did decide to try out coaching after hockey because they loved hockey and wanted to continue a career in the NHL after they were done playing. Chelios looks like a guy who doesn't ever want to stop playing and that is why at 47 he's still in the NHL. I don't see why he won't jump on an opportunity to try and stay in the NHL in some way or another...
