I would hope he could speak French since he played for the Les Nords for so long.

Hunter might be the only coach worse than cunneyworth. No ty.

Boucher sucks, therrien sucks. We need somebody competent, I don't want Boucher having anything to do with this club and therrien isn't getting fired, him and mb are buddies.

Question....

If, for whatever reason, Claude Julien gets fired (and we know this is certainly a possibility) -- would you hire him?

I've seen Whitesnake pump Houle's tires so much that I'd be excited to see him coach hamilton.

Julien won't get fired anytime soon but yes in a heartbeat why is this even a question.

What do you think Therrien is? He's the Denis Savard before Coach Q. The rebound before the long-term relationship.

He'll be gone, but not this year.

Tell that to those francophone journalists and fans and see.

This stupid language requirement has crippled this team for quite a while now.

Houle in Hamilton for sure. For the NHL, it's Boucher. Or you go with Tourigny. Or go as far as to offer it to Groulx. We are not talking about a whole lot of experience here. But you never know.

Or.....you offer it to Robinson.

if Therrien is fired, I predict the next coach will be considered as "an idiot" within his first 3 years

call me nostradamus

3 years? Why would it take so long?

Only if Doug Houda came along with him.

Its not that Julien is a success. Its that Houda has installed a very very good aggressive defense modeled after the Cup winning Red Wings teams.

Therrien could easily repeat that model. Always have one extra player on the puck. Pressure, pressure, pressure. Two vs one, Three vs two. The best way to regain puck possession.

We did pretty good with the set of finger paints we had last year. The palette hasn't changed much, but he can't draw with them for sure.

If Julien becomes available I fire my coach immediately and hire him. He's a little ***** whiner but he wins games.

I'd imagine they'd go with Gallant as the interim. Unfortunately, the French speaking candidate severely limits the candidate pool of who's available.

I guess we'd have no chance as Babcock if he became available.

I would've liked to see Alain Vignault come back. We were hiring 1 season too early though.

I think Boucher is the obvious choice for now. He's one of the best available candidates, plus the language issue becomes a non-issue.

Then why did Bergevin (and Molson) state catergorically that the coach must be able to speak French? Just sayin...

I want to meet these people, if they exist. I want to hear them say they put language over success. I want to see it in person so I can laugh in their faces at their stupidity.

He's talking about the ones that do care. The disgusting piece of human garbage ... "things" ... that protested outside the Bell Centre when Cunneyworth was made coach.

Big Bird is who I'd go for if we can snag him from the Sharks. He might not give very many interviews in french, but no one would say a damned word about it because he's Larry ****ing Robinson.

Remember the old TV Show Hogan's Heroes?
Colonel Hogan looks at SGT Carter and says- "I did not know what wire to cut but I knew you would pick the wrong one", this is my dilemma, I have no clue who could come in and coach. All I know is that Habs management will pick the wrong guy, have done so for many years. Nothing in habsville will change, I believe the first 80 years of Montreal Canadien hockey is the legacy. I am/was a die hard, over 40 years of being a huge fan. Now I watch because I love the jersey and I have the lowest expectations. When Bergevin was brought in I was pretty excited, now I look at him like a friendlier version of the goat.

This team will go though so many french speaking coaches eventually they will have no choice but to hire an anglophone.
