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

I thought they had the series when they went up 2-1 (still remember Ryan Walter in double OT) but they got sub-par goaltending (didn't make the big saves like Vernon did) the next three games and lost two of those games at home. I apologise for my tone but you may also want to listen to your own advice on relaxing.
Fleury was a rookie in 1989 who had just been called up late in the season but did contribute in that Flames Cup run (I got laughed at when I took him late in my playoff pool that year). I believe in your reference to his book (which I have read), he was talking about when he played with Roy in Colorado.
We had a great team in '89 but Calgary was just plain too strong. I didn't feel that Roy was that great that year either (I know his numbers looked good but he just didn't feel 'on' that postseason.)
Fleury, Gilmour, MacInnis, Suter, Mullen, Newy, Roberts, Otto.... one hell of a team. If I remember correctly I think they outscored the Oilers that year.
