I think Andre Savard did a good job in his short stint as GM, but will never, ever say the same thing about Houle.

Not that I disrespect Rejean Houle as a person or a former hab. I think he took the job of GM and did what he felt was the best job possible, but it came down to the fact he had no experience in the position (or any other front office position with a hockey team). He seemed to improve a little bit during his last few days on the job, but it was clear to just about everyone that he was over his head the entire time (ditto Tremblay). Mr. Houle from all accounts is a really good guy, the type you would like to sit down with, have a beer and talk hockey with. Just don't let him run your hockey team.
