So while we do talk about things of the past during the hockey season, can you imagine how it is when there's nothing to talk about? Yes, Bergevin is hired and Dudley is about to. But I've rarely seen in this board a page with only 2 subjects.....We're pretty versatile, we are able to talk about a lot of things simultaneously (if that's how we write it...)
But it's not a new piece of info at all. Anyone who could think for themselves knew that Gauthier in his duties as Dir. Pro-Scouting gave the ok on Gomez.

However, you're right, we should be looking to the future but it's off-season for us. I think your expectations are a little too high at this time of year.
It's been a terrible year and instead of having insightful conversations about whats the next game's line up and who will break out this playoffs we had "tank baby tank" threads. Not to say I disagree with it, but it's pretty normal. The whole year has been pretty much asking "where did we go wrong" and slowly over the summer we'll be seeing more "where do we go from here" hopefully.
I don't think I'm defending the guy, I think I'm trying to be the voice of reason. It's never as bad as the Habs forum makes it, and Gauthier is a prime example. Emelin, Cole and trading Halak were GOOD MOVES. Trading for Wiz to save the PP was a good move, as was not signing him to a ludicrous contract.
But I won't keep defending the guy because it's over, he's gone and everyone has danced on his grave. Maybe if we win the cup next year we can give him some credit
