Damaging no... embarrassing yes.

A $14M embarrassment for Bergevin to go to Molson and ask for a buyout one year after signing the extension.

An embarrassment in the media for a local boy getting humiliated. (was much more fun when it was Gomez being dumped on)

Already we saw the media reaction when the mayor tweeted 'ship DD to Hamilton'. The DD situation is a delicate matter for Habs management... a ***** storm waiting to happen.
