And look what happened...
1) We aren't even sure if the habs see speaking french as a requirement. It's only a consideration from EVERYTHING I've seen, and as such, no unilingual anglo have been eliminated yet.
After the last few months, there's no way in hell they don't hire a French coach. If you think there's even a possibility that they give the job to an English guy you're fooling yourself.
2) Even if it were so, there's a pretty huge pool of french speaking coaches to choose from. And hiring french speaking coaches hasn't hindered us in the past in any way shape or form.
That's debatable. And just because it may not have hurt in the past, doesn't mean it would be a good idea.
Et voila. This is really the crux of the issue right there.
So if this team becomes a contender and they ditch they're French coach for a guy like Babcock, you think the media won't have anything to say about it?
