I'm not trying to say John Ferguson is a great GM or anything. I'm just saying Bob Gainey is not that great (based on moves, not success). He got to stick to his plan, not many GMs do.

THAT WAS HIS MANDATE WHEN HIRED

Not all teams want instant success...the Habs decided that they wanted to rebuild into a parennial contender and not a fly by night championship team.

They told Gainey: Make us a winner by 09

Whatever mistakes were made in the interim, have been corrected. He's team is way under the cap and is losing maybe only 2 roster players.

Sounds like a damn good gm to me


Anyways, I feel like Im talking to my cat here. Im done with this.
