IF the Habs land Grigorenko, would you want Roy as the new head coach?

That was the thing that killed the Habs, nobody could stop Mullen, Gilmour and MacInnis. Vernon played well and the Habs big guns never fired.
Chelios wasn't as effective after the Hextall incident, Bobby Smith and Naslund weren't great, and Russ Courtnall was also just fair. Richer was almost invisible.
Gainey and Carbonneau couldn't shutdown the big Flames line while Otto and company shutdown the Habs scoring.
And feel free to **** off with your condescending attitude.
Not to mention a certain Theo Fleury entering his prime. He mentioned in his book that Roy was practically unbeatable in those series.
