I've let my feelings known about Nill(#1) or McGuire(#2), so I'll take "overlords" advice & likely will get angry at some here & break his rule. So I'm out of these GM threads until the Habs select the new man.

I think the 'Savard likes french players' myth has been put to sleep with the analysis written by Mathias Brunet. Aside from his great 1984 draft (possibly the best in the history of the organisation), the francophone players drafted by Savard were not a plenty and were not as dominant.

Thanks. Read a bit on it, seems like it was a good game. I can imagine Roy being animated and vocal....

Probably not since Tremblay. And I'm not even being sarcastic.

Not sure if it's been posted but Lafleur doesn't like the idea of Roy as coach.

I'm actually cheering for L.A with that in mind. Also cheering for Chicago (figure might help Phoenix relocate and Dave Tippett becoming available), Washington (doubt Julien gets canned but you never know), and Florida (Lamoriello for GM)

In this one, Lafleur actually stated that Roy was more suited to GM than Coach.... I am not sure I agree with that.

Elliotte Friedman is always a great read. His April 11th article suggests some possible candidates for NHL coaching jobs. He mentions: Tippett, Dallas Eakins, Todd Nelson, Jon Cooper, Mike Sullivan, Craig MacTavish, Bob Hartley, Jim Playfair, Peter Horachek, and Gerard Gallant.

Mentions Hartley, Roy, and Jacques Lemaire specifically for Montreal.

Not too long ago there was a discussion here about Guy and how he'd be a good guy to have around the team. Proof he is not right there. What happens if Roy gets hired now?

So... how about Alain Vigneault? He might be looking for work soon.

Seriously? The guy won the Jack Adams, went to the SCF, and coached the Canucks to two straight Presidents' Trophies. The Canucks lose two games to the Kings and he "can't adapt"?

Vignault would automatically be my number #1 candidate for the coaching position if he gets fired.

Vigneault is less likely to go than Luongo IMO. Schneider is the better goaltender.

I think Guy should be the guy that goes out to recruit UFAs. If anyone knows how to show them what a good time is, it's Guy.

I completely agree, but that is the real answer to the Nucks' troubles, not Vigneault.

The Canucks may be forced to let the guy go. Its a business and change after failure must occur. Personally I think he is a good mix of accountability, strategy and leadership. He has proven he can coach offensive teams and defensive teams. What's not to like? Oh yeah, and he is francophone.

Luongo really wasn't the main reason for their loss. If anything he's been less of an embarrassment than Fleury.

But at this point Schneider is probably the better goalie.
