  1. MB is on the phone right now trying to sell him a slightly used red suit.
  2. Montreal Canadiens president, CEO and co-owner Geoff Molson confirmed Monday that newly hired executive vice president of hockey operations Jeff Gorton has signed a long-term deal with the franchise. Molson said Gorton will work in tandem with a yet-to-be-hired general manager to guide the organization after general manager Marc Bergevin was fired on Sunday. He noted it will be among the responsibilities of the duo to handle all decisions regarding the team's coaching staff.
  3. Molson said the next general of the Canadiens, who the team said Sunday must be able to communicate in both English and French, could potentially have no previous experience as a general manager in the NHL. He noted that Bergevin had not previously held the title of general manager when he was hired in 2012.
  4. So,,, rat boy is finally getting called for one of his dirty slewfoots. Boston Bruins Brad Marchand hearing Vancouver Canucks Oliver Ekman-Larsson - TSN.ca
  5. Yeah,,,, it's always easier to improve when your already at the bottom.
  6. The way he left Colorado may not support that point of view. He certainly left the impression that he wanted full control of day to day operations. I could live with giving Roy a look as a replacement coach for DD personally. The year is pretty much shot so there's not much to lose. Not sure i feel the same way about the GM position.

  8. I have zero knowledge on how effective Darche may be as a GM. I'm guessing it would be a crapshoot and i wouldn't bet my last dollar that Molson wants to go with another rookie at the helm,, unless it's like Ted mentioned,,, it would be a go between appointment where the real guy in charge is the new hire, and anybody else would be learning on the job and deal with the required language issues.
  9. My money says MB had a say in lineup decisions since the firing of Julien. Don't make me look the fool with my player pickups. Play my guys or else.
  10. No guarantee that a new direction will be the answer to our problems, but what is obvious is that the outgoing management did little to advance this franchise in the last 10 years. We've been idling in neutral under MB and company (some would say we've been in reverse). Would be nice if someone new could find the right gear and the gas pedal to at least have us in the conversation when talking possible cup contender. Shouldn't take 10 years to go from pretender to contender when money isn't an issue in hiring qualified people IMO.
  11. Apparently the plan is to send him to the AHL so other teams can scout him with the hopes of trading him, while retaining salary. Good luck with that,,,, rumour is that most of his team mates couldn't stand him.
  12. Mathieu Darche from Tampa is another guy rumoured to be in the mix for GM
