Again, its way, WAY to early to judge Molson. First of all, you have an involved ownership in Detroit (Ilitch family) and Boston (Jacobs family) which hasn't seemed to deter success. I'll wait to judge Molson on accusations of meddling when he actually puts his mark on the team. He has a team he inherited and hasn't really had time put his mark on it. I'll judge him when he actually hires people.

And for all Boivin did to create a frenzy for the team in Montreal, he wasn't exactly great at improving the on ice product.
