  1. Hello, all. Hope the move went well moeman.

    Yeah, no Big Bird! He even would have been interested in coming as some sort of ambassador or PR role. Damn.

  2. I may have posted this already, I do remember reading it, but here's an article, Robinson says:

    “Marc told me they’d interviewed a couple of people, Michel liked his interview with J.J. and decided to go with him,” Robinson said. “I told him, ‘It’s a business, you have a job to do and that’s what you’re doing.’

    Good luck to Larry out in San Jose. I had the opportunity to meet Larry at their training camp in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia way back in 1973. Even drove him and a couple other future HOF'ers to their hotel after the intersquad scrimmage. Quite a thrill for an 18 year old kid.

    I predict the Big Bird will be a Habs ambassador when his coaching days are done. He will succeed le gros bil and the pocket rocket somewhere down the road.

  5. There has to be more of a backstory to the big bird refusal to fly.

    1. On the other hand 29 may be correct and in that case my tacit approval.

      I don't think there was an agreement per se, but MT2 would always be looking over his shoulder if Big Bird was there, as a perfect coach-in-waiting (Habs legend, good coach, speaks French). DGMB wouldn't do that to him

      Delete
    2. Robinson has no interest in being head and I think MT2 knows that.

      Delete
    3. Hell, if even I knew that then MT2 certainly knew that.

      Delete
    4. I'm in the same camp, thinking MT2 wouldn't be too pro-#19 but I also believe Larry would've been too classy to step all over the guy. One need only look at his exemplary work with the Devils (man it sucked typing that).

      Dave Stubbs explained what happened with L.R., I have no reason to doubt the veracity of the story. It just wasn't meant to be and I think Larry didn't need the aggravation of being involved with a heavy rebuild.

      Delete
    7. I am not buying. If DGMB wanted Big Bird he would have been there. The Stubbs story is all nuge nuge wink wink. Why the rush to sign JJ? Friad of losing him to another team, not!

      Delete
    8. DGMB wanted to show his support to MT2.
      It was MT2 that did not want him.

      Delete
    9. True, but who is running the organization DGMB or MT2.0. IMHO MT2.0 is getting to much rope. On the other hand if Big Bird is standing behind the bench after the first two losses the mob would be screaming to fire MT2.0.

      Delete
    10. DGMB is the man in charge. I think he will give MT2 leeway if/until he screws up.

      Delete
    11. This whole thread, right here, is why #19 is not coaching the Habs with MT2.

      Don't get me wrong. All valid arguments and whatnot, but personally, I don't think it was a good fit. He knew where he stood in Devils country. Lamoriello told him so. I don't think he would know where he would've stood in Montreal. My 2 cents. I really thing it's better this way.

  10. Left this at the bottom of SF but in case you missed it...Successful organisations always have a "succession plan" for key roles. When they don't, you get the 3 Randys running the show...so my question here - and I don't mean to shit on the parade route before it's even planned - and I have stated somewhere in these pages that I'm fully supporting MT2...until such a time...anyway - my question again - what is the "succession plan" that DGMB has for Les Glorieux? None of the assistants are NHL ready I don't think...
