Yes, he ultimately failed in delivering the ultimate prize and yes, he made some bad moves in hindsight (happens to every GM). He's also leaving Price, Paicoretty, Eller, Gorges and Subban behind.
While I admire Gainey in many ways I don't think he brought the Habs anywhere near the top of the ladder, much less to a championship. One ECF in nine years? Other GMs can point to more than just Price, Pacioretty, Eller, Gorges, and Subban in the same period.
