As the Montreal Canadiens and Martin St-Louis get ready to face off against the Boston Bruins for the very last time this season, live from the Bell Centre, Renaud Lavoie has just dropped a bombshell.

According to the TVA Sports journalist, are the Canadiens facing their future head coach tonight?

Excuse me? You read that right!

"One day, he will coach the Canadiens." - Renaud Lavoie on Jim Montgomery



This morning on BPM Sports, Renaud dropped this major statement. Does he know something we don't?

To be continued.

Let's remember that Montgomery is a Quebecer who played for the Canadiens and speaks French, and is also recognized as one of the best head coaches in the entire NHL.

Renaud isn't saying he'll replace Martin St-Louis next year, but one day, yes!

Montgomery was indeed a name that had been making the rounds in rumors, before Martin St-Louis was hired by Kent Hughes.

To be followed over the coming years, then!

We know Martin St-Louis is extraordinary for developing young players, but will it be the same when it comes time to win games and make the playoffs?

Only time will tell.

As seen on DansLesCoulisses - Renaud Lavoie sees Jim Montgomery leading the Montreal Canadiens one day.
