If the Habs go the French route just to appease the French media I'll be very disappointed. I'm so tired of all this political bull ****. Is gotten us nothing in 2 decades and arguably 2 decades before that.
They should hire based on the same caveat they draft by:
HIRE THE BEST CANDIDATE AVAILABLE, PERIOD.
Winning speaks for itself.

I just think we should stop going the ex-Hab route. Not as a rule, but I mean, we shouldn't just hire ex-Habs in the organization as a rule either.

Bertrand Raymond... why do they keep publishing him? Everything he writes is utterly ridiculous.

Patrick Roy shouldn't even be on the list, IMO.

Agreed, but in this case Roy isn't on the list because he was just an ex hab.

Not to mention he has a volatile temper that would provide fans with lots of entertainment but I figure would not go over well with NHL pros.

He's not even a logical candidate, let alone the only one.

That's just it. That might work with kids, but adults making millions might not wanna deal with it. Roy seems like the type who could create another Roy incident.

You and a select few seem to share my thoughts over the past couple of pages on this thread. Boggles my mind as to why I even need to defend that stance. Roy doesn't have the right temperament for the trade.

It's the whole emotion-and-passion, fire-and-brimstone idea of coaching again. People seem to think "passion" is a primordial quality for coaches. It's not even part of the job description.

The real bottom line is that Patrick Roy simply does not have the required qualifications for the job. If the org does hire him, we should all be very, very worried.

I for one think that roy would make a good coach in Montreal because of his winning attitude it,s been a while since a habs coach had the winning attitude maybe as far as Jacques Demers.

What the habs need right now is not a strict system they need a winning attitude and so positivism for once Mister Burns gauthier is boring as hell there is no passion. Martin had a system didn't work let the kids on the lose i prefer we score 4 goals and take 3 than score 2 and take 1 if Price is really elite he will be able to make the big saves.

Let players like Eller Subban Emelin exploit their offensive upside and it,s the best thing that could happen to the habs IMO.

Put someone who knows what it takes to win and Roy might be that guy because he has been a winner all his career.

I wouldn't be against Carlyle either but no to Therrien or Crawford.

On an other note what will habs fan talk about on this board since about 70% of the traffic was about fire Martin. Trade Cammalleri? Fire Gauhtier? Or just continue the Gomez talks (it never gets old i admit haha)

Speaking of Louis Leblanc, he stood out to me the other night after his goal. Scoring his first goal in front of a cheering home crowd he did not even crack a smile. How intense! I think he will be good.

Fine, so you rather pick a more seasoned coach. I don't necessarily agree, but what list would you come up with?

My pick is Larry Robinson. Obviously, we'll see how Randy does, but if it doesn't go well, and we can't get Robinson, I'm not so sure I'd go for guys like Carlyle, Therrien or Hartley before trying Roy out if he was interested.

His temper and how it relates with NHL men is the only concern, but a good coach is able to adapt. I don't think Roy is gullible enough to believe he can approach a NHL team and players the same way he does with kids in the juniors. But I don't think Gauthier would go after him, they are completely different and I don't see how PG would be interested in him.

Holy **** just heard the news. I really really didn't think PG would do it mid-season. I expected JM to be gone next year, but wow. Let's see what happens now.

If "winning attitude" is the primary factor for the Habs to make a hiring decision, we're completely, utterly screwed.
