All I'm saying is I don't want to roll the dice with rookie head coaches anymore. I don't care if he's coached junior hockey, college hockey, midget hockey. Doesn't matter to me. The NHL is a different brand/level especially as a Montreal Canadiens head coach. So, I'll pass.
Edit: Let someone else hire Roy, break him in, find out if he's got what it takes as NHL head coach, then a few years later attempt snatching him up if he's available (or not). Let's do the opposite for a change.
On the Roy question. I will be super pissed if first of all they insist on a french coach,
if there are none as good as other available non french candidates.
If there is a very good and experienced french coach available, fine, I would prefer that.
And Roy? Give me a break. He'll be a disaster. Let him learn somewhere else.
