Jacques Martin did pretty well with a terrible team to be honest. At least nobody could complain there was no structure or game plan. He always had one. Problem is it wasn't always effective and he took too long to adjust.
Therrien simply seems lost sometimes and has no answer to the adversity whatsoever.
I'd like to see what Guy Boucher could do with this team. I think he's a great coach and he now has NHL coaching experience so he won't do his rookie mistakes here.

Imho the problem behind the Cunneyworth fiasco isn't solely that he spoke english, its that he was also a no name rookie with little experience, clearly not the best available and horrible results on the ice. That he was unilingual english just made it worst.
I'm sure a well known english speaking coach with personality would be accepted by the french media and fans.
