Julien Brisebois is currently developing his network (NHL contacts) in TB working as Yzerman's assistant. If I remember correctly, he did occupy the same position alongside Gainey in Montreal. I am not sure if he has enough NHL experience yet but he definitely is a worthy candidate.

That being mentioned Gauthier's tenure in Montreal may be longer than expected.

In 2 years he did a lot of very solid moves: Cammalleri's trade (salary dump + good pick + prospect + same production in Bourque), Eller, Shultz, Cole, White instead of Pyatt, Emelin, Gill's trade, Bournival... and I like how he handles the media! Slowly but surely, he is cleaning Gainey's mess.

If he goes down at season's end, his downfall would be the result of a very poorly built D squad.
