nope... but they could use a coach/GM combo that is showing all the signs of being among the league best for years to come.

we passed on Boucher, was because we had the veteran Martin behind the bench (who lasted 1 1/2 seasons).

we passed on Yzerman, because we didn't want/need a rookie/inexperienced GM (only to get a rookie/inexperienced GM 2 seasons later).

all thanks to Gainey's visionary leadership.

hindsight ain't no valid excuse since many of us lamented passing over those two. And both would have jumped at the chance to take over a team like the habs.

I hope MB proves to be up to the task, and I pray that MT learnt enough from his two previous failures... they get the benefit of the doubt for now. But imo it is beyond obvious that our franchise missed the boat in not getting Yzerman/Boucher to lead the team when we were well positioned for both.
