solid records : well, a VERY few among the actual NHL coaches have a great record, I'd say 90% are at 0.550 or less...

memorial cup : Yeah but what about those american or europeans coaches, should we limit ourselves geographically too ? you know...
There is absolutely no way to defend "Speaking French" as a relevant criteria for coaching a hockey team.

And yes, the whole 'French' circus here in Montreal is the team's Achilles heel.
