If there is someone to blame, that's him ! He was scared by Serge Savard who wanted his President's job, and in thee same day, fire both him and Jacques Demers.... And replace them by 3 guys with no NHL GM and coaching experience: Houle, Tremblay and Cournoyer. And we all know the rest... He started the domino effect that we can still feel today.
Oh for sure he shares alot of the blame too for that era. A good president would have sat Roy, Houle and Tremblay down and talked it out not make a knee jerk trade that set the team back for a decade.
