    Nothing to do with language. Bergevin can speak neither French, nor English properly. Has everything to do with being a close friend of Bergevin and Geoff won't put an end to it. Simple as that.

    What you have to consider is that Lefebvre has the right attitude and that's what we need for the Habs.

    So the only good point from the season according to Lefebvre is that their guys got call-up. Good job buddy, its unusual for AHL guys to get call-ups, I was expecting the Habs to call up some guys from the ECHL. Lefebvre must be a good developpement coach.

    According to him, the teams got too many call-ups and they lacked character. So its been 6 years in a row of too many call-ups and of lacking character ?

    The more you read quotes from the Laval coaching staff, the more delusional they sound.

    Lefebvre a insisté pour dire que les blessures «en haut», chez le Canadien, ont fini par avoir son groupe à l'usure. «Les rappels [du Canadien], ça a fait un gros trou... Personne ne prévoyait ça. On a peut-être manqué un peu de caractère pour se sortir de nos creux de vague. C'est difficile d'avoir une grosse saison quand tu as autant de rappels qui surviennent.»

    TRANSLATION: Lefebvre insisted that injuries to the Habs ended up sending the Rocket scrambling to no end. "Call-ups by the Habs created a big hole ... No one could see that coming. We may have also lacked character to help us get through the lowest valleys. It's difficult to have a big season when so many players are called up.

    And, as was shown in the following post by Whitesnake, several teams had a significant number of call-ups namely Utica, Wilkes-Barre, Providence, Wolves, Moose, Marlies, Rochester and Syracuse and all of them had a stellar record:


    And the idiot coach in Laval seems to have taken notes from the bigger imbecile nepotist who outranks him, by making sure to throw in how lack of character may have played a part. Enough with this charade, somebody in ownership do something.

    The AHL is both a development league and a feeder system. Hockey and injuries go hand in hand, of course you're going to get a lot of call-ups. What BS is he spewing. Lefebvre is the same guy who complained that the team lost its momentum when a game was interrupted on account of a teddybear toss event. The guy will stop at nothing to manufacture excuses. Bad attitude. Buy him some better food and kick his ass outta here.

    If promoting Lefebvre means getting Ducharme as head coach in the AHL then you do it. Lefebvre awfulness will help next year's team tank even harder.

    The real problem with this team is transparency. which is why Beauchamp got the axe.

    Now the team can fully unleash it's ineptitude, transparently.

    Edit: Correction made

    Beauchamp actually resigned when the season started, telling he wanted to pursue something else in September to Molson.

    No problem. Although you have to keep in mind that this is the official line. It could be that he was pushed out by Molson.
