I'd be happy if he's the new GM and or coach for next season.

But he needs to start evaluating the Habs players RIGHT NOW, to make sure he builds a competitive team. We have many youngsters that, I believe, don't belong in the NHL, and that's the hardest part to do, to EVALUATE the youngsters and sign UFAs to patch holes.

If a new GM is selected in the offseason, he'll have a harder time to evaluate the players in place, to sign the right support cast, than if he's hired before the end of this season. Then he can see at camp who trained hard in the offseason, etc.

Funny cause this morning Francois Gagnon published that article http://www.cyberpresse.ca/chroniqueu...eil_ECRAN1POS1

on the subject and he is saying that Roy did not get any offer yet according to a reliable source. Hate him or not, but Gagnon is a legit reporter at least.

If Roy has already been offered the coaching job for next season, then that means either, Gauthier is sticking around, or Molson is going over the head of our next GM and hiring his own candidate.

as the original article says

Quote:
There has been the predictable rush to slap down the scoop, and St. Patrick himself took to the airwaves in Quebec City to issue a denial that carefully skirts the meat of Leclerc's assertions: namely that Habs owner Geoff Molson has reached out to Roy, and that a deal is done, at least in principle, to re-join his former team.

Presumably this is a Clintonian moment where everything hinges on what the meaning of "is" and "done" are.

Here's our two cents worth on the subject: Roy ticks all the boxes for the Habs, he's a bilingual Francophone, he's an adored alumnus, he's a living link to the last Cup conquest, he's done good things in junior, with gusts to great. But he's also got maybe the shortest fuse in the history of coaching, and it's debatable that his tempest-in-a-suit-jacket act will translate well to the pros.

It would arguably make more sense to hand Roy the keys to the organization by making him vice-president of hockey operations or general-manager, a role he has thrived in for the Remparts - Roy evidently has a keen eye for talent and the ruthlessness required to bring it on board (and by the way, all this talk can't be seen as anything else than another signal the GM's job in Montreal is about to be vacated by Pierre Gauthier).

Just because it's CIA-esque level of information retention doesn't mean the current administration isn't one cluster**** of amateurism regarding human behavior.

I won't mind a more open an emotive organization, as long as they know what to do and act like freaking human being.

There is no inherent value loss if you coach throws a tantrum, as long as it's in his coaching style. It would have destroyed JM's mystique of power if he had broken a sweat. Everybody knows what Roy is about, nothing wrong with HIM being emotive.

Plus he's clever enough to know when to attract attention to himself of he'd want to protect a struggling youngster from undue pressure.

You didn't read my article.... it says that according to Gagnon source Roy phone hasn't had any conversation with anyone on the Habs.

We won't know for sure if it's true or not, but the same thing happened with Guy Boucher when we tried to hire him from Drummondville. His team was still in the Memorial Cup run, and the rumors of him coming to Hamilton were intensifying. Journalists like Leroux interviewed him on this issue and of course Boucher kept denying. And what do we know, the rumors were true after all. What I'm trying to say is that we shouldn't read too much into what Roy or the Habs organization are saying right now. Roy is still the coach of the Remparts and wouldn't want to become a distraction for his team. The same goes for the Canadiens even though they are virtually eliminated from the playoffs. Whether the rumors are true or not, we'll know very shortly.

which in both cases would be a pretty bad decision to make from a President.

We don't need Gagnon's "source" when Patrick Roy's himself denied it, BUT you would expect him to say exactly that, as to not put his jr team in limbo before end of season .

Nah don't need this spaz coaching, if he wasnt an ex hab he wouldn't even get a look. The habs are in a lot better shape than people here think (i use the term "think" loosely).

Roy might be a disaster, but he won't just settle for a mediocre club, and you can't really do much worse than we're doing now.

Interesting to see if and how this plays out.

If I understand, if Roy is denying it's because he it's a done deal and habs brass ask him to keep shut ?

Well, I'm sorry but there is also the possibility that he is denying, because it's false !

Yes, the power to bring the organization to a screetching halt.

There is big time risk with this move.

I'll reserve judgement if this actually happens, but from what we've seen from Roy in the Q...

I dont think he's allowed to tell the public that he got an offer from the Canadiens at this point. They are professionals and Roy has another job right now. He can't go to the public and say he was interviewed by Molson.

Example: If you work for RBC, and you get an interview with CIBC. You're not gonna tell your boss or anybody else you got that interview, until you actually land the job and give your 2 week notice. You know wut Im sayin?

It has to stay on a professional level

Well see, I always said it would be better to put him in charge and making him the President of the team but I guess he wouldn't accept that position and wants to either coach or manage

It's still just speculation based on nothing...

There is two possibility here and we got journalists with their sources that have two differents informations, I'm trusting Gagnon more than those others clowns.
