You cannot throw your coach under the bus like this. He said that being bilingual is a key requirement of the next coach and that Cunnyworth is only temporary.

If that is the case, why the hell is he there? How is he supposed to command any respect from his players when it's clear that anything short of a random Cup run isn't going to keep him behind the bench (and I doubt that would be enough).

The comments may quell some media members for a week or two, but it was a horrible thing to say about an employee who is struggling to turn things around right now. We all kind of knew he was likely a lame duck coach, but I've never seen a team make it official like that. Absurd.
Cunnyworth is being hang out to dry. I feel bad for him

1st he is shoved out to the crazy wild dogs called the montreal media
2nd he has less then 12 hours to get ready for a game
3rd He faces a long road trip with some pretty hot teams on it
4th The team owner says he's just a intern and has like no hope of staying
5th The GM says sorry because he hired a non french speaking coach

So to put this in all for him to keep his job he needs to turn this team that is poorly build into a winning club and make it not just in the playoffs but deep into the playoffs just to have a good chance at keeping his job

For a team that was once known for it's respect they aren't showing it
