Is Former Penguins Head Coach Michel Therrien A Coaching Candidate For The Canadiens?

The folks over at PensBlog did some digging and found a video of CBC's Hot Stove segment during an intermission of Saturday night's Kings-Devils game. One of the topics that came up was the head coaching vacancy in Montreal for the Canadians. One of the names (at about the 3:00 mark) was none other than former Penguins coach, Michel Therrien.

It would be an interesting move, to say the least, as Therrien has been out of the league since the Penguins fired him in the middle of the 2008-2009 season. He had the second longest tenure of any head coach in Penguins history. He has already had one go around with the Montreal Canadiens from 2000 to 2003 in which he led the team to one playoff appearance.

It would be interesting to see Therrien make a return to the league with his no-nonsense coaching style, and of course plenty of Therrien-isms in post-game press conferences.
