Indeed, I wasn't his biggest fan as a GM, but I did have respect for him. Much like I have respect for Tremblay and wish him well with RDS.

Seriously, I'm laughing so hard at the haters. Guess all the haters thinks Kovalev was a god in this team, funny that we didnt do **** with him on the lineup.
Mmmm, weird post. On one hand Gainey built the best team since 93, on the other hand he brought in Kovalev and we didn't do **** with him in the lineup. Contradiction much?

They were well on their way to get better. Savard did a great job breathing some life into the franchise in the limited amount of time he had. Gainey only had to keep steering the boat.

Didn't you know that Halak was just another player on the 23 man roster. It was a team effort, which means that Halak's performances are somehow irrelevant.

Yes he's anglophone, but he was a damn good GM. He took the habs who were a laughing stock before his regime and he put them on the map.He missed what, one playoff? Thats pretty damn good. Not to mention he revamped the team, 11 new players, and still ended up making it to the ECF....ya. he's a ****** GM Some of you posters make me sick, your never satisfied. I know misery loves company, but the rational fans will never succumb to your despair.
