Parlez-vous francais?

Don Lever doesn't, and as a potential candidate for the presumable vacancy that the Canadiens will have at the head coaching position going into next season this has become something of a hot-topic issue in Montreal. Should it be a requirement that the next coach of "Les Habitants" be functionally bilingual in a predominantly French city, or should he only be selected based on his coaching credentials rather than what language(s) he speaks? Logic would suggest that finding the best coach for the position should supersede any other "secondary" concerns, but we all know how well logic prevails in the media firestorm of Montreal.

Needless to say, it should be an interesting situation that will play out in the coming months as a decision ultimately nears.
