Gainey **** the bed, and Gauthier being his mentor tried to clean it up. He couldn't, i can't really blame him. Lots of blind hate towards this guy.
Gainey's biggest mistake was leaving the director of pro scouing in place after signing off on trading Mike Ribiero for a guy who could no longer skate. Same guy who would later sign off on getting rid of McDonagh and Higgins for Scott Gomez.

But yeah, what does any of that have to do with Gauthier?
