Rejean Houle was CONSERVATIVELY 10 times better than Andre Savard.
Or Serge Savard for that matter.
Houle HAD TO CUT SALARY. That was his job as GM.
He took over a team that absolutely STUNK, despite having a lot fo high priced players like Roy, Turgeon, Damphousse, Recchi, etc., etc.
I know that Quebecois aren't the brightest bulbs on the tree, but when you can't appreciate one of your own doing a decent job under difficult circumstances I lose all respect.
Of all the Francophones who combined to turn the franchise inot a laughing stock, Rejean Houle was THE LEAST to blame. By a wide margin.
