If not, and if you bring Jodoin on top of that, there's 2 things missing....1 guy that will teach our d-men (and don't say Brisebois will do it please...) and 1 younger guy like Mulller or Gélinas who does have NHL experience and CLEARLY be the player's coach.

My ideal assistant duo would have been Laperrière and 1 of Daigneault or Robinson. Now, it surely looks like it would be Jodoin and Gallant...again....hoping it becomes 3 assistants with room for either the D specialist or the younger guy. Mind you, you get Daigneault, and you get the younger d-man guy....perfect choice in those circumstances....Somehow, I don't hold my breath.
Well the way I see is that the Habs have Therrien for veteran coach, then you add an up and coming coach(they chose Gallant) then you pick a former player for the D. That's where they could pick JJ Daigneault. And if they want Jodoin could be the guy upstairs.
