The Vancouver sun is reporting that Dave Ritchie is making a bid to coach the Al's again. I dont want this guy back in Montreal he quit in the late 90s to go to Winnipeg and he is older then Mathews and probably would only coach a year max. I think Popp wants to hire a younger coach to a long term deal.
I don't think Wetenhall, Popp & Smith are that "suicidal" !
Especially if they want to max. out the new 25K seats at McGill !
Ritchie is an old fart looking for a purpose. I don't want him here at all, although he would be more acceptable than Maciocia.
Jim Pop will be coach next year.
