Not sure about Bob Hartley, although he's the only coach that ever lead the Atlanta Thrashers into the playoffs, and he has a Stanley Cup, so those two things should at least give him consideration.
Lemaire was ready to accept the Montreal job before Bob went with Jacques Martin. In fact he was sure he would get the job and he went fishing and his fishing partner told him Martin had been hired and he was shocked.

I think it's entirely possible this could happen.
