Trenni had Steve Tambellini and Jim Neil on her blouse? They must have started the hiring process already. Interesting hiring process....

assistant coaches

Postby penny lane on Thu Apr 20, 2006 12:52 pm

would love to see patrick roy as a goalie coach...I get more tickets
just to watch him coach. :P

I know Guy Garboneau is solid with Montreal but he could teach
the forward & defense players.

what the hell does Trenni have on her blouse?


There's a whole slew of responses running through my mind right now, but I'm just going to let them go because this is, indeed, a family board

THAT SAID...

Last week, a whole bunch of us went to the home opener. I had an aisle seat in Section 129. During the fourth inning or so, who comes strolling down the steps to say hi to some folks in Section 130? None other than Trenni.

Very easy on the eyes, that Trenni.

Guy is being groomed to be the head coach in Montreal... scratch him off the list. I think the new GM will hire an experience assistant coach, I hoping Larry Robinson.

They should hire Pat Quinn, now that CP is gone we need someone in the organization to beat up.

Now that CP is gone I would bet that both Johnson and Malone are gone too.

I'm sorry, but shouldn't the coach pick his assistant coach? Didn't Therrien want to hire someone but CP told him now? I would assume Therrien will be given the green light to pick his remaining staff since in most cases the entire staff comes and goes with the head coach.

Penny - I agree, Robinson is just a wish candidate. I'm guessing the second assistant will be a younger guy.

Still say it will be Rick Green. He was one of Therrien's assistants in Montreal and could help work with the defense.

No, Therrien wanted to roll with his two man team himself.

But I figure that the fact that he was promoted in the middle of the season contributed to that fact. He was probably more concerned with establishing himself and his system with the team than looking for a new guy who they'd also have to train.

Now that it's the summer, I'm not surprised he is looking for someone new.

But that is one thing that can't really be blamed on CP.

That's a good question. Gilles Meloche seems good but he is not exactly full time.

If I had to speculate I would say that goaltending might be part of a new coach's responsibility.

I seem to recall Roy saying that he didn't have any interest in going into coaching when he retired. Has he said something different that I missed?

And Tretiak is busy working on an agreement to get us a brand new Malkin for Easter.

Rick Green would be Therrien's choice but I wonder if he'll truly have the final say to the new addition on the bench.

The only way I don't see him having the final say is if the new GM has a buddy who is qualified that Therrien dows not protest to.

But unitl we know the new GM I couldn't speculate on what friends of his could be brought in.

Robinson quit because he didn't like the new NHL. He's done coaching I believe for good.

Patrick Roy is the Owner and Head Coach of the Quebec Ramparts of the QMJHL. He probably made ~$25M in his NHL career. I doubt he would be interested in making ~ $200K as an assistant coach.
