But the next coach should be hired on the criteria of being the best damn coach for the team. Not because he's bilingual. If he's bilingual its a bonus, but what really matters is winning, so I want a coach who is the best man to do that.
and how do you measure that ? I mean, besides the Trotz and Babcock... how do you "measure" best coach ?

winning ? meh, most who have been in the league for long had a bad team at some point, and it usually brings their % to the same level (or close) as the "bad coaches".

a style that fits players better ? meh again, Connie has the Habs play a way that SEEMS to fits the players better... problem is, they lose even more (same roster as his predecessor, minus ONE player)...
