Thanks, but I can't agree with you either. I'm one of the many that thinks that this French requirement is only going to continue holding us back. I'm 100% bilingual and I respect Quebec's special status amongst the provinces in terms of culture and language, but that means diddly squat when it comes to winning hockey games. The most games this franchise ever won were with an anglophone coach behind the bench because they were the *best*. The Bowmans, the Blakes...not saying we need an anglophone coach to accomplish that, we just need the best available, PERIOD.

My rant above is nothing new and has been regurgitated time and time again, but the fact Molson thinks we need a bilingual coach, and not the best available one, is incredibly disappointing to me, politics or not.
