No and No.

I'd rather draft a player with more sandpaper and compete level than Grigorenko. I'd rather us get a coach who isn't a loose cannon who police get called to visit due to domestic disturbances.

OK, Roy is a risky choice but remember that he did win a Memorial Cup as a coach. What kind of coaching disaster would win a Memorial Cup? (Even accounting that Radulov and Vlasic were the cornerstones of the Memorial Cup-winning team)

As far as Rads is concerned, next year maybe... provided he really comes to Nashville on July 1st. Plus we could have had Radulov for AK46+Gill, due to him being a high-risk asset at the trade deadline.

If we sign Sidney Crosby, should we hire Donald Dufresne as new head coach? Cause, you know, Crosby's career with the Oceanic was pretty good...

It's a non factor for me.

Roy does a very good job in the Q so he's one of many candidates if they want to fire Cunneyworth.

I would want Roy as coach anyway, so yes please.

It always seems like success follows him wherever, and superstar talent does as well. So to me it would only mean good things if he would affiliate himself with the Habs once more especially since we are trending upwards.

His inexperience as NHL coach is a non factor.

If Roy becomes the coach it will have nothing to do with the fact that Grigorenko is drafted by the team, if he is.

Roy as head coach with assistants Big Bird at defence and Carbo for special teams. Would make everyone in Habland very happy. Would also look good behind the bench.

There is a long list of successful Junior coaches who couldn't cut it in the Show. Roy's style of yelling and playing head games with teenagers probably isn't going to work with multimillionaire men.

I don't want Roy as coach no matter what... Grigorenko doesn't come into it. Roy seems a bit too volatile and inexperienced to be my first choice. Now, guys like that do someitmes pan out and become NHL star coaches. So if Roy did end up as our guy, I don't automatically predict failure and I'd be hopeful that he'd be one of the successes. But I hope we don't have to roll the dice like that this summer. I don't know who is going to get fired from current NHL jobs, or who all the best experienced candidates will be, but I dare to think we'll have solid options that don't include the dice roll on Roy.

Lot's of NHL coaches yell. Where do you get the idea that he "plays head games with teenagers"?

He throws kids under the bus in PC's. He has even gone so far as to badmouth goalies of opposing teams before big games....completely classless when the mission of his league is to develop players and people. We're talking about teenagers for crying out loud. Ted Nolan once told his players that just because Patrick Roy was a great athlete does not mean that he's a good person. Of course good people don't have the police show up at their home over domestic disturbances. I don't want him coaching this team.

That seems overly harsh. You'd think he's talking about a low end prospect.
Suggesting that the 16yo rookie might be the one making Grigs look good is pretty ridiculous imo.

I'm not all that convinced about Grigs either, but not to that extent.

I wonder what tune Brunet was singing during last year's U18s when a 16-year old Grigs was lighting everyone up.

Ya I'm not sure about that article from Brunet. He also starts it by saying he knows one game isn't everything, but then goes on to make pretty bold statements based on this one game.

I don't want any part of Grigorenko or Roy on this team! Good thing I hear the Habs aren't high on Grigorenko either.

Toronto fires Burke this summer.

So Burke as GM, Roy as coach. Do it Geoffrey.

People seriously needs to stop evaluating every single game. Everyone who played hockey knows how its frustrating to have a bad game, nothing wrong with it. Hell, Crosby gets mad when its not going he way, Malkin too. Same for Ovechkin. He wont have 82(68*) perfect games guys. He's 17 and it's his first NA season. Fans need to step back and look at the bigger picture. So what he had a bad game and was shut down. He still managed to get 1 assist. Let's wait until the playoffs are over before jumping the gun.

That's worse than his becoming coach or GM. I find Roy to be unacceptable all around.

I don't want Roy to become the new coach of the Habs no matter who is selected in the draft. I don't like volatile coaches. I prefer them to be in the Scotty Bowman or Jacques Lemaire mold. As for GM, I prefer them to be cold and calculating, like Sam Pollock.

To be honest, I really don't care who gets hired at this point, as long as the man sticks here. I want some stability. Obviously, that means hiring someone competent.

The thought of Roy coaching the Habs gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach but the thought of Roy as GM of the Habs would be a complete disaster. I fear firesales everytime we go on a losing streak.
