After last week's addition of Rick Dudley and extension of Larry Carrière, the Montreal Canadiens front office continues being fleshed out, with Montreal native Scott Mellanby being named as Director of Player Personnel yesterday.
Mellanby spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach with the St. Louis Blues. He also played in 1431 NHL contests, collecting 840 points in the process.
On the coaching front, our own Fred Poulin reports that Bob Hartley ison the verge of being named the Montreal Canadiens next head coach. And, to Fred's great credit, he was even cited by PuckDaddy late yesterday.
Thus far, how do you feel about how the Habs' front office and coaching staff seem to be shaping up?
