From someone who follows the LHJMQ, I can tell you that Pascal Vincent is an amazing coach, getting a crapy team (with very little budget, no fans, and that was sold and relocated the very next year) to a division championship and to the quarter-finals of the LHJMQ.
He'll be a great addition to the Jets organisation.
Based on what I knew of him, I was very happy with the decision. Hearing that only confirms what I already thought. Hopefully we'll be able to keep him when Quebec gets a team.
i recall some major fiasco involving vincent and his departure from cape breton 3 years ago. i stand to be corrected, but i believe that shortly after signing a contract extension to stay on with the screaming eagles, he bailed and jumped ship to the montreal juniors.
i know the fans in cape breton were not at all happy. perhaps ask them about this guy's character.
