More importantly, look at their current track record in the NHL, Brisebois & Yzerman failed pretty hard in their talent assesment this past year, kind of like how Gauthier failed hard this year.

He learnt the same broken model as Gauthier did under Gainey.
Yeah well people are not stupid and they do have a mind of their own..... I am sure he is not calling Gainey each time he needs to take a crap.

Julien BriseBois enters his second season as assistant general manger of the Tampa Bay Lightning after being named to the position on July 16, 2010. He reports directly to Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman and assists him in all aspects of contract preparation and negotiation, salary arbitration and player transactions for the Lightning and the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League, for whom he also serves as general manager where the Admirals enter Tuesday night action riding a 22-game winning streak. BriseBois also manages interpretation of the NHL's collective bargaining agreement and the salary cap for Tampa Bay.

BriseBois, 34, spent the previous nine seasons with the Montreal Canadiens after joining the organization on September 1, 2001 as Director of Legal Affairs. In July of 2003 he added Director of Hockey Operations to his duties before being named Vice President of Hockey Operations on July 24, 2006. On August 23, 2007 BriseBois was named the general manager of Montreal’s top affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL, making him the youngest in the league at the time. During that time he retained his position with the Canadiens. The Bulldogs improved in each year under BriseBois’ tenure, going from 36-34-10 in 2007-08 to 52-17-11 in 2009-10. In three seasons under his guidance Hamilton went 137-78-25.

Twist it any which way, at the end of the day, this guy is as qualified as Fenton... if not more.
