Also in Georges Laraque's book he stated that Jacques Martin is by far the worst and most non-trustworthy coach he has ever played for.

I would rather this team hire Mike Keenan or Patrick Roy. If Keenan could get the most out of JR I see no reason for him to not get the same out of guys like Duchene, Landeskog, O'Reilly, Johnson etc
Exactly, this young team need a tough coach, honest in your face leadership. I have mixed feelings for Keenan though.

My favorit NHL coach right now is Paul McLean, I'm not really sure about his toughness but I like and respect his leadership.
