Saturday Habs Links

So who coach da team? Any ideas? What was felt by many as early as last Sunday that Bob Hartley was a lock for the job quickly vanished with him going to the Calgary Flames.

Now eyes turn to a potential revolving door of candidates. Michel Therrien apparently holds the edge over Guy Carbonneau, who is felt as the more palatable option according to Ryan Dixon. Marc Crawford is third with Patrick Roy now ruled out by many, with the exceptions of Philippe Cantin and Barry Morgan. Morgan's co-worker on CJAD, and friend to EOTP, Abe Hefter disagrees on St. Patrick, and wonders how GM Marc Bergevin missed out on Hartley.

More after the jump.
