Fact is that Goat provided for his coach as best he could. JM basically called the shots and we saw how awful the Habs looked then compared to this season, with actually positive hockey.

I'd trade Cammy any day of the week, Gomez, Gionta and Spacek too. *** Gainey was truly an imbecile and I can't believe he's venerated yet Goat (for all his logic and simple dealings) is loathed.

I blame the media for this image - he's clearly a talented and desirable hockey mind - the Blackhawks are recent champions and a well run organization and they scooped him up immediately.
