I think it will be a long wait for Melanson to come back to Montreal, especially after this interview.

You get a sense that Melanson was enjoying a 14 year tenure in Montreal and it came crashing down on him because of what he feels was Price's work ethic.

This is the guy that knows price as well as anyone, and opines that Price is an unpolished gem still after almost 350 games in the NHL.

Roy's comments, Melanson's comments, the firing of Groulx. All points to Price being a work in progress. Let's hope the next coach whoever he is can get to the root of the problem.
