I think his hands were tied a little. The only thing I like about The Therrien hire is that he is a no BS coach. So if players take shifts off, he will correct the problem. I just hope he's not too Bad ass and have players hate him too fast for it..
The important thing now is to see how fast Bergevin reacts if Therrien isn't doing a good job. And often there is only a change when there is a better candidate available which as of now in my opinion is no one.
Back to Timmins, I agree with some posters that not everyone who can be a GM want to be a GM. I would really like being a scout. The pay is good and I would love my job. unlike a lot of people, I'm 37 and have had some ****** stressful jobs in the past and my goal is not to achieve lots of money in the bank and live the fancy life. I'm sure Timmins is making a pretty good salary and he's respected in the office. I wouldn't be surprised if he hated the Gauthier era and he looks at ease in his role with the team now. I hope he's here for many years to come.
