06:39 AM ET 12.21 | According to online bookmaker Bovada, Patrick Roy is the favorite to be the new permanent head coach of the Montreal Canadiens. The Hall of Fame goaltender and current head coach of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Quebec Remparts has 2/1 odds of being the coach of the team next season.

Great athletes never make great coaches.

Not to knock goalies but I can't imagine a goalie being a great head coach either. At least as a player, you know systems. As a goaltender, it's very individual.

THREAD HIGHJACK



Engelland hits the dude high, leaves his feet. No call. Scott comes in to stand up for his team mate. 2 minute instigator, 10 minute misconduct on top of the 5 for fighting. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. And to make matters worse, the Pens score on the ensuing BS powerplay.

I find this to be a much more compelling topic than the one discussed as recently as yesterday and then rehashed this morning.

Thoughts?

I would love it if he went there and only spoke English to the press.

He'd have to learn it first.

It was a dirty hit. No doubt. I can't explain what transpired after, you would have to ask the refs. My guess? Maybe they weren't in the position to see him leave his feet, they don't have the ability to slow down, pause, etc.? However, they saw what Scott did. One of those unfair/unfortunate situations. However, Engelland should get called on the carpet for it. He is a tough player, but NOT a dirty one. He made a careless/stupid hit, and should be punished for it.

I call it like it is, even if it is a player on my team.

A much more nasty play then the one that got the Flames Bourque in hot water, and Bourques hit deserves a suspension

Already commented on it 3 times in earlier threads.

Complete crap.

And as I said, ironically it came shortly after the announcer mentione Matt Cooke only had 5 minors this year and no majors....
