Took a whole lot before some people started to think that it might be a baseless rumor....you know like most articles are, at least from some posters point of view.

But I guess that like I keep saying, if you like news, journalists are the greatest in the world, if you don't, they're the worst human beings on the planet. And the funny thing is that sometimes, it applies to the same journalist.....

I find it interesting that you bring that up. Can quebec even call their new team (if they get one) the nordiques or is that name held by the Colorado organization?

I'd put 5$ on calling themselves Le Nationale :p

I'll bet there are idiots out there reading this rumor and thinking omg that ******* Gillett! We could've brought back Carbo and had Roy as our GM! I'll bet had Quebecor offered Carbo his job back, he wouldn't have taken it. The man has pride... Ridiculous baseless rumor

If this is at all true this just shows why Quebecor should never be close to the Habs at all.

Yeah and then they would have resigned all our quebecers and got rid of all the immigrants so the team can get back to it's glorious years!

Anyways, why is there so much Carbo-hate on these forums? The guy wasn't that bad.

So basically, they would've fired Martin 2 weeks after he was hired to bring back Carbo??

That rumor is BS imo...

Not only did Roy already confirmed he'd be back in Qc next year, but it wouldn't be up to PKP to decide who the coach would be.
So, already it makes no sense.

Even more so, if Patrick Roy wouldn't even be able to chose his head coach, there's no way he'd agree to being the GM.

Also, they already owe Carbo money on his previous contract. Now Martin is signed at 1.5M-2M a year, so firing him would mean completely wasting 3-4M per year.
Add this to a new contract Carbo would sign and it would make a hell of a lot of money for coaches.

So, for more than one reason, this rumor makes 0 sense.

Roy as GM wouldn't have had slept at the wheel, that's first sure. The guy is a freakin Conqueror.

How's that for sure if he's never been a GM before? For all we know, he could be the next Milbury.

Thank god they didn't become the owners then....because Carbo back coaching and Roy as the GM....we wouldn't make the playoffs for the next 10 years.

Since when does being a good hockey player translate into someone being a good coach or a good GM??? Roy has ZERO experience as a GM...so why do some people think it would be a good idea to let him control the big decisions for this team?

If you owned a garage, would you rather have an experienced mechanic to be your lead mechanic or would you rather have the kid who sweeps the floor as your head mechanic? I think the choice is pretty simple if you ask me....you go with experience.

Look at Wayne Gretzky. He was the best player in the NHL, but he can't coach. He hasn't done anything for the Phoenix Coyotes since he took over behind the bench....and if it wasn't for having great assistants and management to look after him, he'd be nothing.
