Do you actually think sending Pacioretty back had anything to do with the GM? It's a coaching decision, no matter how you look at it. Plus, one could argue Patches actually asked for it himself by saying he'd rather play top-6 in Hamilton rather than playing on the 4th line in Montreal.
He re-signed Markov but still put all of his faith on him, before he ended up missing almost a whole calendar year.
Emelin was not drafted by Gauthier and he had very little to do in the fact that Emelin felt like it was the right time for him to move to the NHL.
Desharnais had absolutely nothing to do with Gauthier. He re-signed a RFA, like any GMs would have done.
