Thread: Is carbonneau truly the coach we need in Montreal ?

  1. #1

    Is carbonneau truly the coach we need in Montreal ?

    He is good with the grinders . But with our stars he can't even talk to them (Gainey benching kovalev).

    Is there really tension in that locker room caused buy Koivu and kovalev?

    It's the coaches job to take care of that .

    Get rid of Carbo?

    Too bad Gainey and Carbo are such close friends, because in any other team the coach would of been long gone!!

    Gainey is more the problem than Carbo is. After all, Boring Bob is the one that didn't make a single trade on trade deadline day. He said that he was comfortable with the team he already had. Delusional!

    Well the question is now settled. Carbo has been fired. Now the question is this...who will replace him? Probably Gainey in the short term but in the long term?

    I think the organization in general has communication problems from the GM down to the coach. From players who have left the team saying that they had no communication with Carbo to Gainey having to be the one to talk to Kovy there are serious problems there.

    Nothing was achieved in the last two seasons where trades are concerned and that is not the fault of the coach. There is a lack of communication with the players and that is the fault of the coach. I'm sure the constant line juggling by Carbo didn't help matters either and they really have to settle things down where the goalies are concerned because they've been playing musical goalies over the last two seasons. I fail to see how you can build a cohesive team when everything is always in a state of flux.

    I think there is a lot of blame to go around and as usual the coach ends up paying the price.

    How's Quinn's French? A coach in Montreal must be able to converse with the press in French. While this may seem unimportant in actually coaching the team, it is none the less a requirement here in Montreal. If not I would suggest bringing up the coach from Hamilton. He's coached many of the players on the team and next year there will be even more who will have graduated up to the Habs. But unless he takes a crash course in French, I don't see this as a real possibility.

    Gainey for now. Later, maybe Bob Hartley.

    Who cares if he speaks French? see thats the problem with Le Canadiens! its about W I N N I N G!!!!! not what rolls off a persons tounge..... Le Canadiens have lost sight about whats the most important thing in ANY Sport, and thats winning championships at ALL costs....i repeat at ALL COSTS, im all for tradition, but what good is tradition if that tradition of "winning" ends because you have to have a french speaking coach instead of the best person for the job??

    and this has nothing to do with Quebec or French ppl. i Love Montreal and Quebec in general,. especially the Women, , and i wish i knew more French, its about stupid reasons for not hiring the BEST Available coach whether thats Quinn or anyone else , silly silly silly! thats what interpreters are for are they not?

    you mean to tell me if the Habs hired a non french speaking coach there would be an uproar and the fans would burn down the city? ok so what if they won the CUP with that same said NON French speaking coach? i suppose no parade? get real, the Fans would embrace him and give him the key to the city..... tradition or not....

    Donny would be a very good choice if he would be chosen to coach the Habs. He's a very good coach & knows his hockey.
