Mike Keen is the only exemple and it was contextual, bad management. I doubt we ever have a Coneyworth fiasco ever again, what was the management thinking? Gauthier was totaly out to lunch if didn't thought that taking a unilangual coach on the Habs would cause massive retardation. Muller knew like all the coach in the league that if they don't speak french they won't have the job, what does this have to do with the players?
