Would you want Sean Avery as a GM? Most hockey players don't go beyond to coaching or management, and when they do, they typically have to gather a good amount of experience on the sidelines or have had a good education and can use their status to get on the fast track. Luc obviously has tremendous status, but so does Gretzky, doesn't mean he can walk up and be a GM without any training or experience.
Not a whole lot different from Dave Taylor, who was our GM for awhile. And while he made strides to improve the organization while he was GM - you can see there's a world of difference between him & what DL brought. That said, I really hope Luc becomes the Montreal GM..... and trades all their best prospects to us.
