We are stuck with a bad GM, possibly a worst one than Rejean Houle. It's going to be ugly moving forward.
I say give him some time but there are a few things I don't like about Bergevin thus far. One is the Therrien hire. Although, I can give him a mulligan on that one. But the biggest thing is how he's handled this situation. PK should be playing right now and to hear that it's due to a low ball brdige offer really pisses me off.
