But in today's NHL I agree. Take the best coach available regardless of language (as long as he can communicate with the players).
As for the article, read it last night. Enjoyable read. Gives you some insight into a seemingly very private man. He may be too rigid to a fault, but I admire his dedication and professionalism.
In all those years I can honestly say I do not recall ever hearing Bowman speak french not saying he didn't I just do not recall it lol. I do say though we should look now at the best coach available not the best coach that speaks french I mean we have more guys on the team that speak a language other than french now with the roster we have.
