The four who are still working are ALL former Jack Adams winners. What a coincidence.
If you want to go deeper, no anglophone (non Habs) GM has hired a rookie francophone coach in the last thirty years, except for Chicago legend Denis Savard in Chicago. How many anglophone rookie coaches were hired within that span, 100, 200? Those are pretty significant stats.
Is that clear enough for you?
Don't want to jump in this thread because first you are right and two I,m tired of that debate, but yes there was one coach from Laval (Pierre Cramer), but I think that Mario asked for him.
