Out of ex-Habs with coaching experience he seems like the best option. Roy is not ready for the NHL in my opinion. He needs to get his temper under control.
lol, that'll never be completely under control.He'd fun to have behind the bench. Robinson is a good idea too but Roy would be awesome.It's funny that Bob said in december that hiring Carbo was his best move since he joined the habs. Plus they gave his a 3 year contract in september. You never know with Bob.

The bolded part is evidently now public. I was not aware. An excerpt from the press conference during the donation pledge....   At Wednesday’s announcement, P.K. was filled with emotion as he talked

This is not the Leafs thread...we don't celebrate every little accomplishment.

Doesn't really matter though. If he creates 5 goals and costs his team 4 goals, he is still more valuable than a super shut down defenseman who never gives up a goal but who never creates a goal for e

I want a coach that has NHL experience.Vignault, Therrien, Julien, Carbo were all rookie coaches who learnt the job the hard way, it's time for soemone with a track record I think.

FROM Habs I/OIn explaining why he fired his good friend, Guy Carbonneau, and has moved behind the Canadiens' bench, general manager and now coach Bob Gainey said a change was needed after eight weeks of underachievement by the team. In a 7 p.m. press conference at the Bell Centre, Gainey said he began to think about a coaching change on Saturday, after the Canadiens embarrassing loss to Atlanta on Friday night. He made the decision this morning, unswayed by watching the team beat Dallas. Gainey met Guy privately at 5 p.m. to break the news in a "frank discussion" that was difficult for both men.. The Canadiens, Gainey said, did not seem to be "emotionally engaged in games." With 16 games left, Gainey said the coaching change would "maximize our chances of making the playoffs." Gainey highlighted the Canadiens' "inconsistency, from period to period and from game to game." He intends to change the team's system in order to shore up the Canadiens' defence and cut down on an inordinate number of shots and scoring chances by opponents. He promised the team would be "more aggressive positionally and in our decision-making and execution." Earlier, Tony Marinaro of the Team 990 accurately reported that Hamilton Bulldogs coach Don Lever would join Gainey behind the Canadiens' bench. Gainey said he welcomed Lever's "strong button-pushing mechanisms." Renaud Lavoie of RDS, who is tight with Steve Bégin, said the former Canadien told him the players had been waiting for the axe to fall on their coach. Luc Gelinas reported – and the GM< acknowledged – several players complained to Gainey about Carbonneau's coaching methods and communications failings. Gelinas was also told, off the record, that playing Glen Metropolit in a 5-on-3 in Atlanta left the players dumbfounded.

neither of them are french....I think the last few have all been Frenchi maybe mistaken
Bob Hartley is french and Don Lever is from South Porcupine, Ontario so he probably knows at least a little french also.

Gainey makes changesposted by Pat Hickey at 10h48 EST on Mar 10It hasn't taken Bob Gainey long to make changes as he takes over the coaching duties from the fired Guy Carbonneau. Gainey has altered all three of Carbo's defence pairings, and Alex Kovalev finds himself playing left wing on a line with Tomas Plekanec and Matt D'Agostini. Andrei Markov and Mike Komisarek have reunited as the No. 1 defence pair while Ryan O'Byrne partners Roman Hamrlik. Mathieu Schneider, who has been minus-3 playing with Markov, will play fewer minutes alongside Josh Gorges but will still quarterback the power play. Max Pacioretty and Patrice Brisebois will watch tonight's game from the press box along with Guillaume Latendresse, who is closer to returning from a shoulder injury. Gainey has also decided to move game-day skates from the Bell Centre to the team's training facility in Brossard
