But I am pretty sure too, it is because Tremblay, as well as many other Quebec born coaches (or ex-Q coaches) don't have too many close friends in other organizations. And it is normal. You hire the guys you know best.
How come Mike Keenan had so many chances at NHL level ? And the Murray brothers ?
I am not sure it is directly RDS but... there are plenty of guy that get hired out of the media, Torterella, Laviolette, Keenan, hell even Barry Melrose.
Is it a coincidence that none have made it back from RDS? Maybe, but the pattern is there.
Does it have anything to do with the bottom of the barrel type mentality they have all the way through their reports? I dunno.
As for Keenan and the Murrays... the truth is, even if you you may not like them, they get results. They have a track record. And yes, maybe they made a few friends along the way. The fact that they have friends does not win them games, and only winning games keeps you employed.
