I don't think he has necessarily lost his skill but he can't be effective in Montreal, the contract and trade(McDonagh) is too heavy a burden. If he was to get a fresh start elswhere he would probably bounce back pretty good, unfortunately the habs can't afford that in terms of buyout(8 mil cap room down the toilet for 12-13 and 13-14) or re-entry waivers(3.67 mil cap hit each of the next two years, 7.35 mil total).

I think it would not be fair of G.Molson to ask that of his rookie GM to start out 4 mil short in cap room the next 2 years trying to "fix" the team with a weak UFA class to boot.
