Those lazy snivelling dodgy baby boomers have forgotten more about hockey than you have accumulated over your years. But that doesn't have anything to do with the story.

When you are doing a good job there are few reasons not to be transparent and open. With a body of work like Gainey and Gauthier, there are good reasons to shelter yourself from questions and opinion.

I suspect if Bergevin too sends numerous draft picks and young players to other teams for fruit baskets and expired coupons the current regime will seal itself off from media. But what are the chances that another GM could be as incompetent as his predecessors.

The fresh air is also helping the hockey product breathe, as has been mentioned on this board by people who get it, success is a top down thing that brings the best out in people.

Todd obviously recognizes this.
