Habs should not be cheap when it comes to hiring their managerial staff...hiring the next GM is not the only solution, the staff that will eventually surround him is just as important.

Bergevin is one of the brightest hockey minds in the NHL right now...+ he's a Montreal native, speaks french (for those that find that particular attribute important) and has had RECENT success in the NHL.
I must admit I'm liking Bergevin more and more.

I think it's a no-brainer that Jim Nill should be the best candidate. French or no french, if this guy wants a new challenge and is willing to leave the Detroit organization, then I'd have a hard time understanding why they'd pass him up.

As for the coach, I'm sticking to Larry Robinson, granted he's healthy enough and willing.
