Gainey is still the GM, the one getting opinions on all the players and making the final decision. He didn't need 4 assistant GM's to know Gomez was NOT worth close to his 7.35 mil cap hit, let alone giving up a 1st rounder for him.

This article sounds like a somebody with a bone to pick with Gauthier trying to blame him for everything. If you look at the big picture, the moves that led to this past season falling off the rails were all Gainey moves...McDonagh-Gomez, Cammalleri, Spacek, Beauchemin, Latendresse all those moves led to lacking depth on defense and too much salary/cap hit for unproductive forwards.
