Someone told me that he said on Off the Record that he IS speaking french. I don't know how well, but a crash course during the summer could be nice...

speaking french shouldn't be a priority when it comes to signing a head coach for the Habs. The best possible man should count as the 1st priority.

I like him and I think he would make a perfect head coach in this city,however I really believe Boivin will have the last word in all of this coaching debate

Comes off intelligent... he's a very good analyst.

I like that he's a Bostonian (or at least sounds like one). That'd be interesting plotline, in our rivalry with the B's

Pat Quinn is the best available coach, he always gets the most out of his teams.

Believe it or not, I heard a rumour that he actually speaks french - I am still skeptical myself...I don't think he does.

This is the the type of coach that will have a job in Colorado, Minnesota or Edmonto... not Montreal.

Pat is a 100 years old, and he won't get results out of our bunch of gulless players.

Who else was on the roster? Sakic, Forsberg, Drury, Hejduk, Bourque, Blake, Foote and Roy.

I don't know, I think it would be a good choice at this point in time - we have some great character players on our team, don't give up on them yet.

This team is not as bad as people are making it out to be.

lol...he's such a face a claque though...not to mention that his head has a certain geometrical shape that enforces a certain sterotype in this province


(Ok, it's just a joke...but you got to admit he's got a funny head )

We know the media is going to be enamored with the choice until the first interview.

I have nothing against Laviolette. If he's hired I have no issue with him. But I prefer bob Hartley..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Hartley

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/l...017902007.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Laviolette

This is what I want..

Hartley Won a cup and can win with a good team. He had success with Tangauy and Kovalchuk.. So resign Tangauy and get Kovalchuk in Montreal. Heck even Glen Metropolit was having a good season under Hartley

I listen to Hartley's analysis on RDS and I never disagree with him. He seems smart and down to earth. And he speaks french so the Media will not get on his case.

I don't know about Lever as an assistant. Gainey asked him to come from Hamilton to give the team advise but with the Habs going 8 games straight without a win so I can't really say he had a big impact on the team. But the players did play better defensively and seemed more confident with Lever in the organization.

I don't care who the Canadiens hire, as long as they have proven themselves. No more AHL or former NHL players who need 5 years to learn the job and become great. No more experimenting.

Ya. He also had Sakic, Forsberg, Hejduk, Drury, Bourque, Foote, Blake, and last but not least, Patrick Roy.

That's at least 4 HoF material players (Sakic, Bourque, Roy and Forsberg although the latter one probably won't make it there)


I don't really care who comes in, as long as he's got experience or is one hell of a quick learner, can handle Mtl and that we stick with him.

How can you say no to a guy named Pierre LaViolette - a native french speaker obviously like Marc Savard and Marleau. And go instead with Anglophones like Bob Gainey, Bob Hartley or Pat Burns. Sign him!!

The thing that bothered me about Laviolette, is he never wore a poppy like the other visiting coaches when in town. Pissed me off.
