1000% right. He ALMOST lost the Q championship last season against a much weaker Gatineau team. Got outcoached by Groulx like you wouldn't have believed it. Couldn't figure out Groulx' matchup strategy. And it almost blew up in his face.
This year, with the most talented lineup at the Mem Cup, his team just didn't show up at all.
Don't like that. The guys that didn't want Patrick Roy as coach, well, to be honest, Gerard Gallant was much worse than him. He had the best lineup a Q coach had since probably the Burns years in Hull.
