Pat Burns said clearly a few weeks ago (back when La Presse transformed, against his will, a simple info about his health into front page news) that if not for his health he would be coaching right now in the NHL.

He also let slip at some point that he was offered a "tempting position" with the Sharks but could not take it because of his health.

Also - he claimed and showed his loyalty to the Devils and Lou Lamoriello on a number of occassions.

So the answer is probably no - no Pat Burns for the Habs.

I would have liked Pat Burns but if not Don Lever.

Lever is the perfect choice with his connection to the younger players. I read an article about him being the best coach outside the NHL and how he was continuously looked over for head coaching spots. It was only a matter of time before he made the jump to the NHL as a head coach.

I can't help but feel that Gainey made this move with Carbo now because Lever would get picked up in the offseason by another organization.

Pat Quinn and if not him, Alain Vigneault. There is no guarantee he'll be back with the 'nucks.

Nothing against Lever personnally, but it's gonna be a hard sell in Montreal.

Maybe him + a guy like Clément Jodoin who was an assistant-coach with the Habs few years ago and had succesful teams in Junior hockey since the last 15 years. Groulx, the ex-Gatineau coach, now with Rochester would be a good assistant too.

Hartley ? I am not sure anymore.

Crawford ? see above

Nolan ? No !

Clément Jodoin is a retired ice hockey player, and current head coach of the Rimouski Océanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Jodoin was an assistant coach with the Canada national junior hockey team for the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. Jodoin has twice been named the QMJHL's "Coach of the Year," receiving the Ron Lapointe Trophy in 1997 and 2007. The Canadian Hockey League honoured Jodoin with the Brian Kilrea Coach of the Year Award in 2007, leading the Lewiston Maineiacs to the QMJHL President's Cup and a 2007 Memorial Cup berth.

Jodoin played junior ice hockey with Rosemont National in the QMHL during 1969–70 and 1970–71, and later with Concordia University in the CIS. Jodoin was hired as an assistant coach with the Pittsburgh Penguins for the 1987–88 NHL season, then earned his first head coaching duties with the Halifax Citadels of the American Hockey League during 1990–91 and 1991–92. Jodoin would return to the NHL as an assistant coach with the Quebec Nordiques for 1992–93 and 1993–94. When the QMHL expanded to the Maritimes, Jodoin returned to the City of Halifax as coach of the Halifax Mooseheads for their first three seasons from 1994–95 to 1996–97. Jodoin was again hired as an NHL assistant coach, this time with the Montreal Canadiens for six season from 1997–98 to 2002–03. Jodoin retuned to the QMJHL, coaching the Lewiston Maineiacs for three seasons from 2004–05 to 2006–07. Jodoin received the Paul Dumont Trophy in the 2005–06 as "Personality of the Year."

I would love us to get an experienced NHL head coach, but I get the feeling the job is Lever's to loose.
Might not be the worst idea, as he seems a pretty capable coach.

I'm surprised Hunter hasn't gotten more consideration. He played for seven years with the Nordiques - does anyone know if he picked up any French? His coaching record with London is outstanding.

Hunter

That would be like an 80's nightmare. I wouldn't have seen that one in a million years, let alone 20. Maybe he could get Cam Neely and Ray Bourque for Assistants

Seriously though, he's a decent nomination. Junior coaches are en vogue too... He's got a great track record. He'd be hard to convince, he seems to have a good thing going.

Well, I wanted Laviolette, but it seems like the popular nowadays to bring a "new guy" from another league. It started with Boudeau, and now everybody's copying Washington. There's Sutter, DeBoer, Anderson, Clouston, and Bylsma. I'm pretty sure Lever will be the next coach.

Great stuff there, Jodoin is certainly worth approaching anyhow. I like that he has the "personality of the year" award on his CV... These guys are all fairly competent and it's the little things like that, that could make a candidate exceptional.

Welcome to being a sports fan, Willy. It gets tiring, thinking about the really important stuff, so you spend ten minutes pondering the next coach of the Habs, and write about it on a message board. It's actually a lot of fun.
