It is completely ridiculous to base a coaching decision on whether the individual is a francophone. Using the logic that the coach has to be a francophone, wouldn't that mean that your players need to be francophone too? Obviously it doesn't matter since 17 players on the Canadiens roster are not even from Canada and I highly doubt the majority of their players are francophone.
