Nabbing Diaz and Emelin, two immediate NHLers, in one offseason was a stroke of genius - but hardly anybody cared because Gauthier was vegan and referred to everyone as mister.
Bergevin's idea of proactive was to sign and extend Bouillon and trade for and extend Drewiskie - two borderline NHLers - and sign Murray in August. But he wears nice suits and at least he's not that awful LAST GM we had!! Give Bergevin some time!!!
This fanbase has Stockholm Syndrome. Most expensive tickets but continuously and incessantly served the sloppiest management and coaching. Just once it would be nice to have actual visionaries at the helm instead of racist jerkwads who'd rather sign a broken down smurf than look at other options.
I'm not as agressive or harsh as you are, but I kinda agree with you up to a point.
I'm ready to give another full year to Bergevin (season and offseason), but to me, the honeymoon is over and he must starts answering for his moves and non-moves.
Like I wrote higher, Habs need a true #2 d-man in the Seabrook mold, and nothing like it is developping in Hamilton, and there's none in the UFA market. So it's maybe time for Bergevin to let go a beloved youngster to trade for such a valuable asset. I'm not saying it's easy, but at one point, a GM has to make a bold move that fix what needs to be fixed. And I believe that "point" will be reached whithing the next 12 months.
