It's been official since late yesterday afternoon, but with today's press conference, let's just say it's now even more tangible. Martin St. Louis is the interim head coach of the Montreal Canadiens.

One thing is for sure, St. Louis is quite a salesman. What a passion!

To highlight his arrival in office, we present you the most outstanding quotes of this event!

Martin St. Louis

Martin is full of passion and confidence!

His reflection does not seem to have been very long.

He's been preparing for this opportunity for a long time!

He comes with a head full of ideas to implement.

The question of his experience behind the bench was addressed.

And he even allowed himself a little joke!

Kent Hughes

There is no doubt about it. This is the beginning of many changes.

This decision is in direct line with the direction the team wants to take.

The goal is not to win games here and there but to build a winning team.

Jeff Gorton

Here is his explanation for the dismissal of Dominique Ducharme.

Gorton confirms that he has spoken to St. Louis several times in the last 7 days.

St-Louis spoke with the players this morning and Gorton was impressed!

All that being said, Martin St. Louis seems to have hit a home run with this press conference. He seems to have convinced quite a few people to get on board with him!
