A Eulogy for Bob

Not to praise him nor to bury him, but to say goodbye.

Bob Gainey brought class to the organization and was able to attract and empower people like Timmins to be their best, to inspire players like Kovalev to reach new levels of focus and to reach a new level of understanding of the importance of Les Canadiens to the fans.

He showed great vision and courage in building a team that was ahead of its time, great loyalty to his colleague Gauthier and compassion for the great player Markov.

And finally showed his high degree of integrity in his final act, stepping aside when his chosen successor was fired.

A good man and a brave one. Farewell Bob.
