If not Gainey as GM then who?

On the top of everybody's wish list is a new GM, so who do you think is want to have to deal with all of the FA's, the media, the fans?

Dougie Risebrough
Doug McClean
Jay Feaster
Trevor Timmins
Cliff(ZZZZZ) Fletcher
John Ferguson Jr. (Don't laugh)
John Muckler(Stop laughing)
Pierre Gauthier (At least he can talk to the media)
Doug Armstrong (Dallas's leftovers)
Mike O'Connell (At least he got rid of Thornton)

As you can see not much to choose from. Jay Feaster is probably the best - but he doesn't speak French and he didn't play for the Canadiens. Ditto for Timmins

Candidates from left field
Julien Brisebois (Colorado's ex-gm, do I have to say more)
Ken Dryden ( why take a job where you have to actually work)
Serge Savard ( look at the answer above)


So we are up that famous creek that Thomas Crapper made famous without a paddle

Risebrough could be a decent replacement. Jay Feaster has won a cup just like BG.

A new GM is the LAST thing on my wish list. Blame him all you want, Gainey's done a good job with the Habs and will comtinue to do so next season.

Antichambre. Get the whole crew and sign them as the GM. They can work in a collective unit.

Risebrough decent? He's terrible.

And Jay Feaster majorly ****ed up in Tampa after he won that Cup. He's pretty questionable. Who the **** lets Khabibulin leave and replaces him with Marc Denis

Plus the ongoing list of useless scrubs he signed. Michel Oullet...Andreas Karlsson.

Yeah...it's pretty slim pickings when it comes to GMs.

There's no one better out there then Gainey. Neil Smith is the only decent one I can think of.

A great GM makes the difference ... take it from a bruins fan who had to endure some pretty horrible GMs in recent years that ruined any chances of winning for quite some years.

Our new guy has things going right and have also caused the owners to have different attitudes. We are a franchise reborn.

I can see Montreal fixing their ills, not sure about Gainey as I know not enough about every detail of his dealings. I do know price is a world class goaltender that should have been in the minors for a spell before being thrown into the limelight in the NHL Montreal hockey mecca. That was a mistake honestly.

I hope they haven't ruined his confidence.

We have Tuuka Rask in the minors who is a fine goaltender and will be our future when Tim Thomas is done. he is being seasoned properly in the AHL and not rushed.

Gainey should have done that with Price imo.

Well, it would give time so Rask can be the second violin of this team, and then overthrow TT as the first one. A 4-year contract doesn't mean TT has to be the number-1 goalie all 4 years.

It's not like Rask has to become the number 1 goaler of his team the first year he step on.

You know. Things can go gradually... Smooth!

You mean besides letting 2 allstar dmen walk without getting a thing in return, failing to fix the blueline, trading away Huet and not getting a veteran, Jinnima, Hamrlik for 6million and firing his coach he praised the week before all while watching his franchise goalie fall apart and allowing 11 FA's to be up this season?

Yeah, BG is super awesome.
