I don't know much about the Molson family, just strange to hear them being called cheap when they just paid 550M for the Habs. If they are cheap, they must have been pissed when Gainey handed out or acquired 109M in contracts, that's 659M spend in one summer. I know that when the company owned them there was talk of cost cutting, which led to the dark years, but they had shareowners to report to, so I always chalked it up to that. Sucks if they are cheap though, and with the recent letting go of the 6 scouts, perhaps they are in cost cutting mode.
