    1. Vigneault's available. Do you fire Claude and hire him? It's not your money.

    Similar role as Julien, hence Julien wasn't given top players to coach the team, if they were good players the difference would be us winning more than usual. So vigneault has played 5 seasons with NYR and past few years were excellent, this year both teams had missing key players.

    Do we get a 5 cent refund if we "can" Julien and hire Vigneault?

    Do we get provincial government subsidies if we recycle all the French speaking dinosaur coaches?

    Can they bring back Mario Tremblay, might as well recycle all the Habs coaches.

    I can't think of a french coach that didn't get their start in Montreal. (I may be missing someone). So, if our next coach is going to be french and have NHL experience (which he won't necessarily), he's going to be a recycled former coach of ours.

    You can't just pick french coaches at random. This management has a clear plan: it's Carbonneau next, Martin after and then Vigneault when the 3rd go around starts.

    Didn't want Claude when we brought him back, have always thought AV was a better more adaptable coach

    I still don't mind Claude. He's fine. I don't know why his assistants are still employed, though. They've never done anything good.

    What is it about the Habs and the fans now too apparently? Are we only allowed to hire coaches who have been here before? Carbo is available as well... maybe we could bring him back into the mix again!

    Neither, it is time to get younger coaches who will adapt to the newer style of hockey and improve our younger players instead of recycled dinosaurs who are stuck in the past and would rather rely on plugs like Alzner, Benn, Froese and Logan Shaw.

    This is true but right now management is stuck in the past so they need a coach the reflects that.

    Ducharme MUST be considered for Laval. Let him get his feet wet there as Claude has 4 years left on his contract. Barring him suddenly leading us to .600 hockey next 4 years, Ducharme will be groomed in Laval and step in when Claude leaves. He'll be ~50 at that time, so plenty young.

    Succession planning. The team sucks at this. The best way to go is to put staff in the AHL that you can use to replace NHL staff. Players to management, that is how it is done.

    I honestly think that Julien is a better coach.
    We don't have the players and are not good enough right now for any coach to do miracles.
    What Julien did in Boston is a lot more impressive than what Vigneault did with the Rags.

    Vigneault did get two very different clubs all the way to the final. I think that's a little more impressive then getting there with the same club twice, especially when it took a herculean goaltending performance to get there the first time.

    But, meh. Retread coaches, retread results. Better to find someone new. Not that it'll happen so long as ol'BB remains in charge.
