This means you'd still pick the best coach, whether they spoke French or not.

Its obvious that Cunneyworth is not the best coach.

If you do your search and believe Roy is the best coach, then fine, hire him....

But why you'd eliminate Carlyle without even looking at him I dont know.

One of the best coaches in the league this year is Ken Hitchcock. Another great hire was Paul MacLean in Ottawa. These are two guys who Montreal never would have considered.

Nor would they have considered Mike Babcock, Lindy Ruff, Barry Trotz, Dan Bylsma or a number of other excellent NHL coaches.

I just dont see how limiting your options makes any sense. There is no argument you can come up with that it does make sense to limit your options. Even if their are great french speaking coaches, you haven't eliminated them by opening up the number of candidates.
