Larry Robinson

Hi Guys!

I know it is not entirely CJ's fault that the CH is not performing well. Honestly, I strongly believe that he is not the solution for Montreal.

IMO I believe that Larry Robinson would make a perfect fit to coach Montreal.

Credentials:

1) Stanley Cups as a player
2) Stanley cup as a coach
3) Is bilingual
4) Knows what it means to be a Canadien, and knows how important Le CH is to Montrealers.
5) Can get the best out of our players now, and to come

Seriously folks,

I can see Larry here for the next few seasons. Let's be honest, we all know that CJ is not the man. Remove the notion that the coach always gets the Axe in MTL.

Let's cut our losses, bring in Larry Before some other team like Florida will sign him.

Larry, Like BOB should be in MTL. Nowhere else.

I feel the same , but we have to give a real chance to Claude Julien before . CJ should help himself and change of assistants first . I think Robinson could be the coach at some point in 2004 .

totally agree.. don't really have a beef agains't Julien yet, but I'd rather we hire him now before he gets hired by another team... if Robinson ever gets hired by the Leafs, i'll be very derepssed.

And I'd love it if we could somehow manage to get Carbonneau as an assistant coach.

I was all for getting Robinson to replace CJ until I heard about the new lines for the Ottawa game. Joey Juneau on the 1st line is pure brilliance. CJ is the man.

He'll keep Rivet , Dackell and Juneau happy so the players won't **** on him . Look like that's his way to see things .

It's definitely not Julien's fault, he's in a no-win situation. The players don't want to play a defensive system, it's obvious. He doesn't have the right players to play any type of winning style, no coach would make a difference with this team.

I think we've hit the point in our rebuilding phase that hurts the most when you try to transition to the next group of kids and weed out the vets.

Very tough.

Nailed it right on the head if you ask me. It's time to cut our losses and go for a complete rebuilding. It will hurt us more to try and stay competitive instead of realising we need to rebuild.

Yeah let's fire Julien that will help....
Did it change something to fire Therrien and Vigneault??

The players aren't giving their 110% on the ice, the coach cannot score goals!! He has to what he can with the players he has...

I don't want Robinson as our coach at all. He is'nt a strong man nor having special technics ability as a coach.

Credentials???

1) it does'nt make him a good coach.
2) after coaching the team 8 games.. then got fired the year after because no one wants to play for him anymore.
3) So is Julien
4) So does everyone in Canada
5) Nothing makes me beleive they would work harder for him. the players were suppose to work twice harder with Gainey as GM and see what happens now. Also i have'nt heard of Larry helping or develloping any young player.

I don't like the way Julien coach lately because he seems to panic but i really don't think Larry is the solution.

Also the team is pretty weak, we could miss the payoffs even wiith Bownman behind the bench. Next years, we will have more money and roster spot available to built a good team!

let's rebuilt one last year and bring Ovechkin!
