Bob Gainey is a solid individual, I've know him since his days in Peterboro playing for the Petes, a real class act, and a winner, but things seemed to have to changed the last few years, and the decision making in Montreal was quite confusing to say the least.
The firing of Carbonneau, (another winner and good hockey mind), and then a few months later dismantling half the team, so who and what was the problem?? Was it the coach or the players, by these actions, no one is quite sure.
I would like to be a fan, but I cannot support the track record of the Gauthier/Martin duo of incompentence, and where making the playoffs is considered a success, and then making fans believe that the team was so close to winning it all, since they lost to the eventual Stanley Cup winners.
Habsterix post is quite accurate, and there a lot of people that I know agree, especially the ones that remember and lived the greatness of the real Montreal Canadiens,
