Well if the coach gives interviews like Torterella.....they won't have to know much French....

I'll be very disappointed if Crawford becomes our next coach. Quenneville is the guy I want.

I think that Quenville will be the guy, MB mentioned Dudley, he'll be here soon, he also mention JQ as the coach he respected. These were in the English interviews last week. Obviously he will surround himself with people he knows & respects.

We were, with Martin, but God knows how people supported that. If Quenneville is the type of coach Bergevin will go after, then I doubt Lemaire will generate any interest.

100% Correct. Patrick Roy did not quit because of pressure. He was publicly humiliated by the idiot Tremblay and Ronald Corey would not support Roy. The lot of idiots only to be followed by a continuous lot of idiots until Geoff Molson bought this team and started cleaning house.

I remember that game like it was last year. It was a pathetic way to treat any player, much less Patrick Roy.

He also chased Brashear away, and like Roy, after their disagreement, he was traded 4days later.

Ground zero of the downward spiral that we have been in.

I am thankful that we are getting some different perspectives for sure.

I'm surely extremely slow today....but can somebody explain why Gillis getting an extension AUTOMATICALLY means Vigneault getting one as well? I mean, surely it could mean, we're satisfied with the management, we love you so we love him....but could ti also mean, we love YOU....and know that you'll do what's best for the team...so fire AV....no? I guess not.

I just think their regular season record outweighs their quick exit in the first round, especially after the way the Kings destroyed the Blues. Vigneault is Gillis's man and I'd be very surprised to see him get canned.

I'm not saying that I don't understand AV not being fired. I would keep him as well. Just that people directly associate Gills extension to Vigneault staying. I guess that's what will happen 'cause if you give an extension to the GM, you are satisfied with his work. And his work does include Vigneault. Yet.....what if Gillis intended to make a change? Was his extension at the condition of keeping AV? Again...getting late....not thinking straight....

Well, Gillis wouldn't speak so glowingly of AV today if the owner didnt give him the green light to bring him back. The only way AV leaves now is if he wants to leave himself. I think we can scratch his name off.

I still consider Q my #1 guy, if he's available. I like his style and intensity. He brings instant credibility, and the players should respond. He might not be your guy if you are not a fan of line juggling though. He's one of the guys who does it more often, but that's not a huge issue for me.

I know what I dont want at this point and that is hartley nor MT.

and Turgeon. The Houle/Tremblay era was by far worse than the Gainey/Gauthier era.

Anyone else loving the Dudley drama and him possibly joining the team before the draft thus totally screwing Burke and the Laffs? I know I am. I'm also on the Quenneville bandwagon but will Bergevin have the guts to hire an English coach?

Stan Bowman anticipates Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville sticking with the club next season.
After Quenneville's friend and former Hawks assistant GM Marc Bergevin was named Canadiens general manager, there have been some rumors that he would make a play to bring Quenneville to Montreal. Quenneville has two more years left on his contract and the Chicago GM says he expects him to coach in Chicago next season. "Yeah [we are committed to Quenneville], I think we made that clear at the end of the year, that we're trying to look forward and get better as a group," Bowman told the Tribune. "But I don't talk about rumors. I haven't and I don't want to start now."

Now that VAN GM Mike Gillis has his contract extension, Gillis and Alain Vigneault will begin working on an extension for the head coach.

Look, I'm not gonna justify Houle/Tremblay. It was a bad time for the Habs organization some of it was because of those two, some of it wasn't.

But the only reason you can make that statement is because Gainey/Gauthier had Timmins in the organization and he plugged up alot holes those two morons created.

If the Habs had an average Head amateur scout the Gainey/Gauthier era would look just as bad as the Houle/Tremblay era - probably even worse. Gainey/Gauthier gutted this team.

And just in case you're thinking of countering with well they brought Timmins in. They didn't. It was Andre Savard.

Come on now....you're being ridiculous. Houle started his era with a decent Habs team and just mutilated it until we had nothing. Almost all his trades made us older. Gainey brought a 1st place finish in the Eastern Conference, a semi-final appearance and stability to the organization after Houle tore the team apart. There is no comparison. Up until this year, the Gainey/Gauthier era was mediocre at worst. The Houle era was a disaster similar to what's been going on in Toronto since the lockout. There was no hope whatsoever.

The only real core player they let walk was McDonough and he was just a prospect at the time. I'm sure those two made their share of mistakes but they hardly "gutted" the team. The Habs are in 5x better shape than a lot of teams despitea crappy year, for example Calgary.
