It's probable, even likely, that Larry Robinson's coaching career is not over.
It just won't continue with the team on which he became a Hall of Famer, winning six Stanley Cups as one of the greatest defencemen of all time.
Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin rounded out his club's coaching staff last week, naming former Habs defenceman Jean-Jacques Daigneault as the second bench assistant for head coach Michel Therrien. Daigneault joins Gerard Gallant, with Clément Jodoin contributing perspective from the press gallery and Pierre Groulx continuing his work as goaltending coach.
There had been considerable talk in the Canadiens universe since Bergevin's May 2 hiring that Robinson, at that time an assistant coach for the New Jersey Devils, would be an ideal choice to nurture a young Montreal defence corps.
Ultimately, the composition of the coaching staff was left up to Therrien, and on Friday he decided on Daigneault as the final member of his staff.
