As an English Montealer I think its just a fact of life that the coach needs to speak french, there is just no way around that.
From the look of the names being discussed on this board ( Therrien, Crawford, Hartley) were just talking about recycling guys just because they speak French. I don't want any of those guys near this team, I would even prefer Roy over those names.
Is Roy the only viable candidate out there that could provide some new blood/energy/vision. Are there no French speaking coaches in the Q? AHL?
I just hope that Bergevin is doing his due diligence for the coaching position and NOT just looking at what the fans/media are putting out there
while being from the area he didnt spent his last 30 years in QC or around the Habs org, so MB is probably not looking at the same names or at the very least has a few more on his list.
