Hire the best man for the job, the best in the business and hire a translator to work with him when addressing the media.

That's it!

NO. NO NO NO.

I can see it now...Weber - Plekanec - Darche as our first line.

I would have liked to see Carlyle, but obviously that's not going to happen now. I fully expect it to be Roy.

I want a good coach who will develop the young players and make them play.

Speaking french is a "nice to have" skill but it's not mendatory.

Except he hasn't coached anywhere since, so he's learned nothing.

He's learned how to be an analyst on RDS from the best around, Mr Benoit Brunet.

Patrick Roy. He is a though coach that will get the best out of Cammy, Subby and Plecky who need to step up their game.

I hope it's going to be Kirk Muller, but it's highly unlikely since he's not available.

I know he's old, and I don't know if he could still do it, but Scotty Bowman

and he had absolutely no strategy. Martin is a fine coach, just not for the Montreal Canadiens.

Can someone translate this poll and put it on some French boards? It'll help remove the bias in the results. Send me a PM please. Thanks.

Absolutely, can we get the best man out there please.

I'm not really sure who is available ? But for debates sake I'd say Patrick Roy.

I hope they will hire a coach that do not speak french, so he will have more time to concentrate on the game than on press conference and media bashing.

realistically, the next coach will be Bob Hartley or Patrick Roy.

I can't believe we missed the opportunity to get Kirk Muller and Guy Boucher as head coach.

It's not the right time to hire a real coach replacement, so I guess they are going to for a temporary replacement until the end of the season.

Might just be that Cunneyworth is their man. The word "Intrem" was not used in the Press Conference.

He is interim. Molson didn't want to pay someone new this year. They'll deal with it in the summer.

They did say he was there until the end of the year.

I for one hope they hire Carlyle

As much as it would hurt the Gatineau Olympiques' organization, I think that Benoit Groulx would be a very good choice if Cunneyworth is not successful.
