People in Montreal know when there been had....

They stood by the rebuild and GAINEY...
2003 HE PROFESSED 5 YEAR PLAN...THEN THE building sold out in 2004...HERE WE ARE NO MORE GAINEY as front man , FANS Bailing cause we're 9 years into a 5 year plan ...heading for last place

FROM 2007 AND NOTICE SAKU'S COMMENTS,who was RIGHT??? Gainey or Saku??
He had a five-year plan and if you look at [Montreal's young roster] he's sticking to it," said Montreal Gazette columnist Pat Hickey. "But I think the honeymoon period is over and he's expected to improve this team this year. There is going to be more pressure placed on Gainey to get the team back into the playoffs and get them past the first round."

Even long-time Montreal captain Saku Koivu created a minor stir in the off-season when he suggested the Canadiens were a playoff calibre team, but couldn't compete for the Cup - a statement Gainey refuted during the team's annual golf tournament in early September.

"I think we have a team that can make the playoffs - and if you make the playoffs, you have a chance to win the Cup," Gainey told reporters, pointing to the recent post-season runs by Calgary and Edmonton
