Mario Tremblay is impressed with the coaching team of the Canadiens

Listening to an interview on the ckac.com program 'sports du lit, Mario Tremblay was being interviewed about hjis coming piosition as a hockey analyst this comiong season.

During the interview, he gave his opinion with regards to the coaching staff of the Canadiens (Martin, Pearn, etc.).

He said that he was amazed by what they were able to accomplish last year. With the advent of all those new players and the new coaching staff and the new system being implemented, there were huge obstacles to be overcome.

As to the playoffs, he did admit that the Canadiens did only make it by thee skin of their teeth but, once there, they accomplished wonderful things.
As to the players responsible for the Canadiens playoffs succes, he agreed that, yes, Halak played a big part of it by his outstanding play. Nevertheless, he did insist that there were other players who'se contributions were also crucial. The goals by Cammalleri, Giionta and others were also necessary. Without them, all the headstands & dancing around in the crease by Halak would have been for naught.

So, that's an encouraging commentary by someone who knows

For those who understand French, here's the site:

The related comments are a few minutes in the interview.

get over his mistake as a coach, he was trying to prove he was a leader, and maybe the look was more about his reaction to the crowd than a look meaning, its your fault..

we all know he screwed up, but the guy as been learning with jacques lemaire for like 10 years now.. give him a chance, he tries to be positive.

He certainly doesn't know much about the goaltending position, or maybe he has learnt?

Look at it as a favor to Roy. Without the move, he wouldn't have won another Cup.

What? He spoke favorably about the organization?

It's amazing how people find it odd that people speak well of the habs.

I wonder where Tremblay stand on the tough issues, such as Halak vs Price?

He would probably be willing to be patient like people should be with players of the age.

Having doubts =/= not being patient.

He was a bad choice as head coach at the time, Roy-gate torpedoed his head coaching career I'd imagine, but he's still a guy that's been a player and assistant coach for decades.

His opinion carries some weight for me, for those things.

It helps when he's mostly stating the obvious, of course,

If he's comparing other coaches to himself, they are all geniuses.

Just think of the two goals that Tremblay scored in our Stanley Cup clinching win in 1977 versus Boston. Even more importantly, think of him setting up Lambert in OT in semi-final Game 7 vs Boston. He was a key role player in that late-70's dynasty.

And he also played a bit part in helping dismantle the Canadiens of the mid-90s (who we're not terrible up until Roy left).

I guess they nullify each other, at best. I wasn't even born in the 70s, but I will recognise what he did on the ice. The Roy trade hurt me, considering I was old enough to understand the impact of it.

I don't think the Habs teams of the mid to late 90's were winning another Cup with Roy - way too many holes, thanks in large part to many years of mediocre drafting.

To blame Roy being traded completely on Tremblay is rather unfair - Corey, Houle, a porous defence and Roy himself were all factors.... people seem to discount that however.....there has to be one scapegoat for some folks I guess.

The year that Roy left, the Habs had a pretty solid season.

You're an idiot, Tremblay.

I bet there will be a "I miss Brunet" thread in November.

They had a pretty good team up front too.

They would have been much better if Roy was still there though, I personally know 4 people who will never cheer for the Habs again because of the Roy trade. They we're die hards before it.
