P.Roy may rejoin the Av's org.

That'd nip the P.Roy to the Habs rumours in the bud.

Yeah but I don't think anyone expected him to become our goalie coach anyway.

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".

Lever and Wilson's comments, in another article, would have you believe Gainey's hands are tied. He's got to wait till he gets the nod from Uncle George.

Our owners troubles are problematic. The clock ticks on Subban and other orgs are moving in on all the good hockey people.

I don't think gainey has his hands tied when it comes to signing rookies with a deadline date to sign. Subban shouldn't be a problem to sign. Don't worry, he'll be signed.

I think this summer will be a train wreck. Hope I'm wrong.

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.

If he signs in Colorado the media is going to bash Bob all summer for "letting him go" even though he never had any interest in him.

They don't use the word coach in the article, it could be anything.

I don't see his personality, laid back attitude, working out in Montreal. Hey, couldn't be worse the BG so what the heck.

he may be laid back as an announcer but he is quite fiery from what i remember watching in Vancouver. one of the coaches who wasn't afraid to get a misconduct from the bench if the refs were blind

Thanks, do you know where is the other article?

I really don't want to see this guy as a coach in Montreal. I'm not sure that his yelling, playing arrogant might work with adults. Still hoping for someone with NHL experience.

"But when asked whether he preferred coaching or a front office position, Roy recently told Le Journal Montreal, "I'm not a papers shuffling guy so much."
