I'm glad that Molson has made it clear that he wants the Habs to consistently compete at the highest level on a regular basis. And obviously Molson doesn't feel that either Gainey or Gauthier have the ability to get the job done (or he would not have let them go).

I'm amazed at how many people on this board defended Gainey and even defended Gauthier during each of their sorry tenures as Habs GM.

Can only assume it is a reflection of their knowledge (or lack of) regarding the game of hockey!


Boivin should be credited for his business prowess because he turned the CH into the money-making organization that it's become since Gillette first took over. However, his business acumen did not translate into hockey smarts. He was a very poor judge of good hockey minds.
