With all due respect to the man, he was one of the greatest leaders in Habs history and has my up most respect as a player. The irony that he did not mold a team in his own image....tough, mentally tough, leads by example, hard to play against, fearless.

That would be my ONE question to Bob....why?
Gainey made some mistakes towards end of his time here but to not sell on 100th anniversary...I understand why. There was massive hype. You can't sell during that season.
