No matter the fact that RC is a lame duck coach appointed temporarily, I find it disrespectful if not borderline idiotic of these players to give their opinion on who could make a good replacement before he is even fired. And I'm clearly not RC's biggest fan.

Still, this kinda gives us an insight at how much of a mess that locker room is. And people think Gorges is captain material in Montreal..
In principle I agree with you. If taken alone, the quotes in this article don't show appropriate respect for Cunneyworth. But, it's a short print article - we don't know the questions asked, and we can assume the players' actual statements were longer, and edited down to just the meatiest stuff about Patrick. I'd like to give the players the benefit of the doubt on this one.
