Hockey is the only thing that keeps Canadians from committing mass suicide during drawn-out winters. And perhaps no one has been so close to suicide lately as the people of Montreal. When the Habs stumbled to a 13-12-7 start this season, head coach Jacques Martin was canned and replaced with interim Randy Cunneyworth. Many Quebecois were peeved that Cunneyworth didn't speak French. Today, the Canadiens hired Michel Therrien. He speaks French, but he's a bad coach.
