That is presuming Gauthier was doing this entirely freely, which may not be the case. Certainly the RDS guys were saying Martin and Gauthier were not getting along, but given the very odd timing, after getting Kaberle and seeing instant PP improvements, at the very least this was partially motivated by a desire from Gauthier to save himself. The internal promotion of Cunneyworth is clearly something driven by Molson. Probably does not want Gauthier to saddle the club with money owed to a new coach that a new management team might not like.

Cunneyworth and Gauthier are now tied together..
