I think they should only hire French speaking coaches BORN in Montreal on days when the Habs were playing a home game. Ideally the TV should have been on in the labor suite, but we don't want to get too picky.
not surprisingly, the most reasonable, intelligent and funny post from our fans on the subject. night and day compared to the cultural insensitivity and ignorance on display earlier.
only issue i'll take is that, since just about every boy AND girl plays hockey growing up in quebec, they may not in fact be limiting their pool of candidates all that much.
