I'd kill for Kekäläinen (new avatar slogan?) but I believe he's the GM of his hometown club in Finland. Gonna be a tough gig to pry him away from.

I don't think so, actually.

A chance at being a GM in the best league in the world for the most storied franchise in sports history (other than the Yankees) would probably be very appealing. Plus the pay would be pretty good.

Molson outright said that French was a preference, not the rule.

This might be true - but if they do their homework, his name should creep up.

This guy isn't the same kind of communicator that Savard was. Not that he is bad, but they want someone great at it.

For your information, I do.

Also, for your information, Kekäläinen has worked with an NHL organization before, so I'm sure he knows all about what kind of stature the Canadiens have (or had, for the cynics).

I think that was a polite way of saying they don't want another Pierre Gauthier, ie a czar.

And who the **** won these 24 Stanley Cups. teams with a majority of French speaking players.

DoN,t worry I have tremendous respect for all the Anglophones who carried the Torch with them, and made up amazing TEAMS.
This team was built to win hockey games and turn a profit.....period.

The rest of the nonsense is fodder for politicians to grandstand upon.

Damphousse's theme song might as well be "With A Little Help From My Friends" (RDS/Francois Gagnon).
