Boivin ... he was just a pawn, that's why he's gone and Gainey is still a very important part of this organization.
Pierre Boivin was PRESIDENT of the Montreal Canadiens. And you are making my point. The business side of the Canadiens was very successful while he ignored what made the Montreal Canadiens THE Montreal Canadiens..........a hockey team with a glorious history of success.

Is the President of the Montreal Canadiens over the GM of the Montreal Canadiens? One would think that is the case and that is why I will forever say that Pierre Boivin was instrumental to this franchise not being successful on the ice.
