Just for fun, which one of the two would you choose?

I don't see the fun in watching either of these clowns run this team into the ground.

It surely is a question of opinion....Pagé makes me sleep. Aside from his stupid Sundin rant, Pagé was incredibly dull.

I see it. Top 5 pick in 2013, top 5 pick in 2014, fire the clown, get a better one, become a top team and win the cup. By the way, the game is to choose either one.

How did you even come about this idea? Both are horrible and will never coach in the NHL ever again.

The idea came while talking with friends and remembering old memories!

Then we entered the "what if" world

True, however Birdie has been commenting and watching mostly the NHL, not Pagé. I'm not sure Pagé would fit in anymore. Well you can't be sure either way. How about this guy:



As I always say, his balance is perfect.

I voted for Bergeron for his enthusiasm, but you made a very good point. Either way I'd rather have somebody else. Pagé reminds me of Jacques Martin.

Feels a little too close to playing "Fear Factor" for my liking. Do I eat Bison balls or an Elk ****.............picking either is just too repulsive.

Voted Bergeron.

When in a position to hire an incompetent and an utter incompetent, hire the latter. Mainly because he'll be fired more quickly.

Can we add a ham sandwich to the poll? I bet it would win in a landslide.

Lot of insults thrown around for 2 guys who've coached in the NHL while the nearest thing you guys will ever get to is coaching pee-wee level kids. They made it to the NHL and they had success at that level period. Personally i like Bergeron coaching style, hes very passionate and he live and die with his best players, you wont see a Darche on the PP with Bergeron coaching, hes also willing to double shift his best players if he needs to, sometime he would cut his bench in half only playing his 2 first line instead of rolling the 4th line trailing 2-1 with 6min left something that we've seen too often in Montreal.

Oh and btw the guy won 2 president cup in 5 years in LHJMQ, and he had only 2 season under .500 in 10 years of coaching in the NHL.

If you had the choice between these two coach for Montreal?

Why would the HFBoards member, Montreal, need a coach?

I would die if either one was ever hired as our coach. Literally. Die.
