It is. He had health issues, no interest. If people slot him as a head coach their opinion doesn't really matter as they are wrong. If media even suggests Robinson as head coach I think I permanently ignore them. Fake journalists/analysts if you ask me. If they don't know the reality, then sorry, I won't bother listening to them.
Not hiring Robinson to avoid controversy is just wrong. If Therrien chose JJ because he felt he was a better fit, no problem, but if its a matter of "I don't want people with limited knowledge of the NHL to suggest illogical stories" then sorry, that's just ********. Obviously, that isn't the case, just a matter of them liking JJ better.
There are usually multiple factors that go into the decision to hire one person over an other. Completely ignoring the PR angle of the decision would be irresponsible.
