Michel Therrien is now a loyal contributor to TVA Sports, but he was also head coach of the Habs twice. Let's just say that when it comes to the Habs, he can usually be trusted to give us the inside scoop on the team.

It is well known that transparency has not always been the watchword at the Tricolore. Players and staff were conditioned to answer only briefly, without giving too many details. Now that Therrien is no longer part of the organization, he's not shy about talking openly about it and he made a huge statement on TVA Sports on Saturday night.
Indeed, the former coach mentioned that Geoff Molson and the Habs are against the return of the Quebec Nordiques. However, the team's owner has always mentioned in front of the media that he was for the return of the rivalry between the two Quebec franchises.

This is very important news for the future. We know that Gary Bettman doesn't seem to be very interested in establishing a team in the capital again, but we never really get any hard details that show beyond any doubt that the decision comes from him.
Remember that Bettman works in part with the league's owners. What if Geoff Molson and others of his ilk are really opposed to the Nordiques' return? It's really intriguing, and we can imagine that the next time he goes public, the media will ask Geoff Molson for an explanation.
