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.
