They don't want a guy who can speak french. They want a guy who IS a francophone. A guy who can get by in both languages is not enough and never will be.
Bingo. And I always felt this way.

cant speak for the others but that isnt the case for me.(If you ever read more than one post of mine, it's damn clear)

Never made fun of someone who tried to learn a different language, be it french, english or vietnamese.

Never asked for a francophone to coach the Habs either.


I just dont need anyone to pretend, to fake knowing something they dont...

I'm not that naive you know, in all the losses he didnt know a word of french, but now he won a game and suddenly he does ? come on now... (blame goes to the Org IMO, not Connie)

and it's mostly this, you know french (even just a little) and use it, fine... but if you dont, dont fake it you know...

for example, I had no problem at all hearing AK saying "Andrei Kostystin" instead of "Je suis..." like he was told to... if anything I respect him for that... no game, no fake, no staging or anything, he doesnt know french and doesnt pretend to know it.

Fire Cunneyworth and clean house

Cunneyworth is now 1 and 5. Prolly the worst start of a new hab head coach. And please fire Gauthier, Timmins and Gainey. We need new ideas in this organisation.

Gauthier and Gainey are the ones that have to go

Cunneyworth is there for the rest of the year and it won't change. Timmins has done very good I still don't understand that some want him to be fired

Fire Cunneyworth ? He's gone after this season, and was just named the interim coach.
Fire Gauthier ? YES.
Fire Gainey ? Okay.
Fire Timmins ? NO, he rocks at finding good players in the late rounds.

Man I feel bad for Cunney, he was thrown in the worst possible fire, whatever he does, he comes out a loser. I truly hope he gets a fair chance elsewhere down the road.

Timmins did a great job in drafting Fischer instead of Giroux, and the example are numerous.

21 other teams passed on Giroux as well. I guess they should all fire their scouts too.

Yes he also did better then all other scouts drafting Subban in the 2nd round and other great prospects drafted after 3rd rounds. Nice try time to leave and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

The fisher/Giroux thing is so retarded. If a fan still comes up with that. He probably cant name me 5-10 players that will be draft this summer.

Knowledge doesnt run in every posts.

Ok maybe Subban was a good draft, althought the jury is still out on him, especially with the terrible season he is having, but what impact player as he ever drafted for us? We havent had a top 20 scorers ever since he has been here.

There are teams that draft in the top 5 that don't end up with top scorers either. Timmins is far from being the reason this team isn't good. McDonagh is playing great for the Rangers, Timmins isn't the one that traded him away along with Latendresse, Kostisyn and other good young players. He drafts them and has a say, up to management to developed them after

players that aren't drafted in the 1st round. He found them not you or other people. Bottom line is that talent went wasted because management traded them away for nothing, not every player drafted becomes a superstar dude and not every player drafted makes it to the NHL and for your info we have the best average in that aspect so I'm not sure what the **** you are looking for. Maybe Gaston Bouchard or someone like that will make your day and draft 10 players from the Q

In the case of Timmins, he as never drafted a star, just a bunch of mediocre NHL players
