Ah… les Habs…

Stay classy, Quebec nationalists, stay classy…

Maybe they should worry more about winning a few hockey games.

Geoff Molson, owner of the Montreal Canadiens, released a statement Monday afternoon saying that the ability to speak French is important to coaching the Montreal Canadiens.

“Although our main priority remains to win hockey games and to keep improving as a team, it is obvious that the ability for the head coach to express himself in both French and English will be a very important factor in the selection of the permanent head coach,” said Molson in the statement.

He also said that the head coach position will be “revaluated” at the end of the season.

Molson’s statement comes after criticism from Quebecers who say the new interim head coach, Randy Cunneyworth, is a poor choice for the job because he doesn’t speak French.
