Of course, we were supposed to win the Cup in three years 5, 10, 15 etc years ago.

It is a shame that the greatest sports franchise on the planet has been led lately by GM's who really do not have a very good grasp of management principles and what it takes to win a championship.

The crony system in Montreal needs to go. We need some fresh blood with fresh ideas on how to win it all.
Agree 100 percent. The problem is that you need to find a manager that is not just perpetually keeping his job like a politician in an election year. That's Gauthier. You can't have an old guard GM who doesn't have the nimbleness to manage within the modern game. That was Gainey. You need a Moneyball type innovator.
