Good, get experience in Colorado, rebuild the team, go through the tough times then come back home to Montreal as an experienced francophone coach.
EXACTLY. Let him go through the rough paches of learning there, and we'll get him later on in his career. It's not like he's gonna stay there forever (if he does go there).
But I can already hear the monkeys on 110% tonight, the main subject will be "The Habs are gonna pass on Roy, a French-Quebecer and former Habs" with such illustrious comments as "well that just shows how Colorado is a better organization than Montreal".
My worry is that GG can't spend until the mess is cleaned up. Maybe his creditors have some kind of governance over him.
I hope you're right there. And likely you are . Entry-level deal is a drop in the bucket in consideration of the 100's of mils at stake here.
I don't think its possible. Foremost because the creditors he owes is not for the Habs property. He owes that money because of Liverpool. Secondly, the Habs are part of a corporation/league that obliges their franchise to have contracts upwards to a floor of 40 million per year. Considering that the Habs have something in between 25-30 million already signed, its highly unlikely that anyone would prevent him from acquiring contracts that would help him reach the 40 mil cap floor.
In all likelyhood, Gainey is already in negociation with many players (RFAs and UFAs) including Subban.
Also, Gillet took a loan on the Habs and a loan on the Bell Center. In all likelyhood, the Habs won't get sold, and he's already paid what was late with the creditors for Liverpool with the loan he took out for the Habs.
