I have never said it on this board (mostly because I don't know how reliable the information was) but I had heard this from a source with at least some inside knowledge on our club. The fact that this is now being reported does not surprise me.

And it really underscores what I've believed for a long time... Gainey wasn't a terrible GM. He handed the reigns over when he suffered a personal tragedy and Gauthier ran the club into the ground. Gainey's first half tenure with us is quite good, it's only after that tragedy that moves started to get made that just didn't make any sense.

I think Gauthier is probably the guy who ran us into the ground. Just my opinion.
