He brought respect to the Habs, and when he talks people still listen.
I have nothing but admiration for Gainey. He is a great man, one I look up to. His time as GM had good and bad, I think for the most part he set the Habs on the right track but he made a few serious flaws (the Gomez, Gainey and Cammalleri signings/contracts especially). He didn't seem to have any long term vision.

But those signings are sinking us, and at this point I'm afraid Gainey will continue to pursue his vision for the present at the expense of the teams prospects.
