What do these current GMs and coaches all have in common?

They don't (presumably) speak French and as a result wouldn't be hired by the Montreal Canadiens:

Peter Laviolette
Barry Trotz
Lindy Ruff
Joel Quenneville
Mike Babcock
Randy Carlyle
Mike Sullivan
Jon Cooper
Peter de Boer
Darryl Sutter
Dan Bylsma
John Tortorella
Paul Maurice
John Hynes
Mike Yeo
Dave Tippett
Todd McLellan
Joe Sakic
Don Sweeney
Lou Lamouriello
Ken Holland
Jarmo Kekalainen
Peter Chiarelli
Steve Yzerman
Dave Poile
Ray Shero
Jim Rutherford
Doug Armstrong
Ron Hextall
George McPhee
Kevin Cheveldayoff

Think about that.

No stone unturned, eh?
