The GM will always be a French speaking person, as long as Molson owns the team...same with coach. It doesn’t have to be an ex-player, but most of the time it isI don’t understand your point at all. I have no desire to hire him, and have never said that I do. But it’s a nice straw man argument. The GM does not have to be a French speaking ex-player . . . unless that person is a very solid candidate.
I think Molson is very cautious with trying at all cost to avoid rocking the Quebecois boat...he hasn’t shown or said anything to prove the contrary. He’d rather hire the lesser candidate because they speak FrenchI don’t believe the GM has to be a French speaking person but that doesn’t mean he can’t be.
He’s only hired one GM so you’re basing that belief on a tiny sample size. And he could hire another French one who could turn out great. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE CURRENT ONE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH AND THAT’S A FACT.I think Molson is very cautious with trying at all cost to avoid rocking the Quebecois boat...he hasn’t shown or said anything to prove the contrary.

It's laughable --- the players discuss the lack of support between D and Forwards after every loss.
I did not watch Biden tonight.I see that Biden pretending to be the second-coming of FDR really got you fired up tonight
And yes, i would definitely replace Bergie with a better candidate, if such French candidate exists. At this point, even McGuire might be better (Worm, I’m joking)
(and I’m basing my beliefs on what Molson has said numerous times in interviews)
So who is the “best person” - try and put a list together as an exercise...it’s not cut & dry.I can't imagine Patrick Roy negotiating contracts and building a proper development structure for this team. He's too temperamental and if he's not winning, I can see it going real south very quick. He would probably make rash decisions and sink this team for a long time. Can we stop with the familiar names and go with the best person for the job? Oh ya, he has to speak french so I guess Patrick Roy it is and another 10+ years of being an average team.
I like Pat Brisson’s background in every way.So who is the “best person” - try and put a list together as an exercise...it’s not cut & dry.
I would say Chris Drury who lives a town over.... he wants nothing to do with a job for any CDN market.
