To coach a hockey team in Montreal, French is not required. I am sorry, but i do not believe it is required in any way shape or form. At all. The coach isn't coaching the people, it is coaching the team. The team will all speak english (infact, i imagine more of the team speacvh European languages than French). To communicate and coach that team successful, i.e to do the job, French is not needed AT ALL.

Of course they will frame it in such a way to make it appear as if it is required. Yet, i imagine that to make me believe you require French to coach the Montreal Canadians successfully is about as likely as it is to tell Erik Cole to stop diving and being successful.
