So Hartley is out, and now word from RDS that Patrick Roy is no longer in the running to be coach of the Montreal Canadiens:
That leaves Michel Therrien and Marc Crawford as the favourites, with whispers of Guy Carbonneau and a few others being candidates as well.
I’d have to think Therrien is the favourite, given his background. However, Crawford, or Carbonneau for that matter, would also be a solid choice. That said, don’t be surprised if Marc Bergevin throws a curveball and a name comes out of nowhere. Denis Savard, perhaps?
Bergevin clearly has a clear idea of where he wants to take the Canadiens, and he’ll want his own guy in there from the get go. As such, this could take a few more weeks, as the new Habs management team plots their course. If I had to guess, I’d suggest a coach will be in place for the draft. As to who it will be - your guess is as good as mine.

About The Upper Canadien
The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.
I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
