HOCKEY INSIDER THINKS HE HAS AN IDEA WHY MARTIN ST. LOUIS WAS HIRED

As we mentioned at the end of the afternoon, the appointment of Martin St. Louis as interim head coach is really outside the box. But could it be that this decision hides several others?

At least that's what a source told Anthony Marcotte of 91.9 sports.


The appointment would be the beginning of a very interesting domino effect. If this were to happen, we would have Patrick Roy as head coach for the upcoming season and St. Louis would move to an assistant general manager role.

To us, this makes a lot of sense, as we don't believe St. Louis has the experience, at least for now, to lead an NHL team on a regular basis. He should probably be seen more as an insider for his bosses to get as much information as possible about their current roster.

So the word "interim" in his title would be more important than ever in this appointment.

What do you think about this theory?
