I voted for Lever, I don't know much about the guy but I like what I've read recently, he's already coached so many guys on the team it should be an easy transition for him and the players. Plus he's paid his dues as an assistant. I'm not a fan at all of Hartley everything I've heard about him it sounds like his players don't like him. And the last person I'd want behind the bench is Roy, weren't we all just complaining about rookie NHL coaches? Roys got less NHL coaching experience than Carbo. Maybe bringing him in as a goaltending consultant wouldn't be such a bad idea but not as the head coach.

Nolan. Won't happen though.

There's been a string of successful rookie coaches coming to the NHL - Boudreau, MacLellan, DeBoer, etc. I would not be upset if we tried to pry an assistant from SJ or Detroit, or grabbed a successful coach from the lower levels.

Isn't he in Chicago (whom is son works for), as a consultant or something? I don't see how he comes back to coaching, under any circumstnaces, at this point; he's really getting up in age.

Shouldn't they be traded for decent fluent-speaking journalists? What about the production staff?

Robinson would be at the top but he doesn't seem to want to be a head coach thus not going to happen.

I'd be happy with either Laviolette or Nolan. If Babcock ever wanted to coach Montreal then by all means. Although I don't know what he'd be thinking to leave Detroit.

I voted without looking at all the options but Don Cherry, that would just be awesome. It could send a certain message to the french media =p

Then we would fire him a week later because he's senile.

I'm not sure who I want the head coach to be, but the way this team is set up and the way alot of people here want to play the run and gun game with emotion, Denis Savard should be on the list.

Correct me if Im wrong but Marc Crawford wasnt speaking french when he came first to coach the Quebec Nordiques..

Personally I think Lever is the man even if he doesnt speak french.. yet..

I really dont think Hartley has what it takes to coach the Habs..

He studied at McGill. That's Montrealer enough for me.

Denis Savard? lol

This guy wouldnt last an half of season coaching the Habs.. Hartley wouldnt last much longer...

We need a guy that will command respect when he talks, someone that everyone will listen, we need a good teacher as well working hard on the details.. Lever looks to have a presence and the competences for that job.. He knows our kid pretty well too, what is a big advantage.. If Babcock is avalaible though, I would think twice..

Yes, he's in Chigaco working for the Hawks with his son who's an assistant GM there.

If there's any way to lure Babcock in Montreal, give him signed blank checks or something. It's not the SC experience I want, it's the fact that his team has been the most consistent team in the NHL under him. But I doubt he'll leave Detroit or get canned as long as they're a power in the West.

Nobody mentionned Jacques Martin?? Yes he has a good job as the Panthers GM, but I'm sure he would enjoy being closer to home...

And Mario Tremblay must have taken a lot of experience next to Jacques Lemaire for all these years...

Doubt Martin would leave a GM job with a young, successful team. Who would?

And Tremblay... Been here, done that, no real reason to consider him again. And according to some people here, experience as an assistant don't count.
