On RIS, it says that the press conference will be at 1:30PM. Stay tuned boys 'cause one says 1:30, the other ays 4:00....

Can a mod chance the title, 'cause it really seems to be 1:30PM. It will be on RIS.

Okay so here's what it is:

The press conference is really at 4:00PM. But RIS will start showing stuff from Brossard from 1:30PM where at that time you'll hear from the players who will be picking their stuff.

So on RIS:

1:30 Players talk
4:00 Gainey's press conference

I hope he reams the classless fans some more - those idiots need to understand that they're helping destroy the club. What FA in his right mind would want to play here ot stay here?

Qeustion - is it common to have a post mortem the day after the elimination ? Cause the speculation goes he hurried it so that there might be other important announcements (going from team being sold to simply the name of the new coach).

No it's not common, and I don't see him naming a new coach one day after elimination. And of course he wouldn't be the one giving the pc I the team was sold.

Resignation is an option...

you make a good point... thought I don't think Bob is to blame and the guy is a class act all the way...

But with all the UFA's and all the other changes that needs to be made, realistically if he did step down, it would be better to do it now so whoeever steps in can do what they want with the team

are we sure about the 4:00 time? Team990 just said "the press conference" was at 1:30. I'm assuming it was just a slip of the tongue but just to be safe .... Can we get a solid confirmation from a second source?

Gaineys 5 Year Plan -has It Failed?

All I'm hearing lately is about how we are no better off as an organization as we were 5 years ago. Personally I find this to be untrue.

I believe Gainey has strengthened the organization by consistently bringing in young players, preserving and acquiring prospects (via draft & free agency) and also by treating all players fairly thus making Montreal a more attractive destination for potential free agents (as demonstrated by his handling of Kovalev & Begin this year to name a few).

Here is the roster at the end of Gaineys 1st year of work. Gainey added Dowd and Kovalev....and gave Komisarek a more prominant role. With a few exceptions it is pretty much a team of castaways with very little room for improvement.

Please someone explain how the state of our organization is not better off now than it was back then. Don't you remember how bad we were for so many years...when Eric Landry & Bashkirov would excite us. Gainey has probably made some decisions he regrets but anybody saying we have taken a step back is acting like a spoiled baby. Building a good team takes time & patience.....there will always be bumps & bruises along the way.

The sad thing is, many are going to be biased with their opinion because of the season we had and they will judge Gainey on his coacing too.

In my opinion, he did very well.. we are going in the right direction.. back than, we were hoping we could make the playoffs, the past 2/3 years we've been hoping we can finish high.. thats a step up in my opinion..

So if Gainey Steps Down...

who the hell takes over the continuity of the hockey operations?

with critical UFA's set to walk, players who like and trust gainey - some of who were traded for or developed on his watch...
what happens?


gillette and boivin can't let this happen right now. find a new coach yes, but to flush gainey at this juncture is a nightmare.

I don't see Gainey stepping down before the habs ownership situation is finally resolved. The new owner will most certainly want to put his own man as a GM, so it doesn't make any sense for Gilette to bring a new guy just to handle the off-season.

what's with the assumption of new ownership? Gillette made it clear he wants a minority partner

Unless the plan was to have a medicore team in 5 years then yes it has obviously failed.

Forget looking at the team on paper, the games are played on the ice.The team as it was on the ice that Gainey took over was better then this years edition and made it to the second round of the playoffs knocking off none other then the ruins. This team didn't do that and this team will be even worse next year with the mess of UFA's. Our shot was last year and Gainey made his team worse at the deadline by rolling the dice and going with Price, which proved to be to much to soon for the kid.

I honestly don't think that Bob Gainey would ever leave an organization in the lurch like that. It's a situation that he created and he must have some plan for how to deal with it.

On the other hand of the argument, Gainey could say that he is leaving his successor a clean slate, but that can only effectively happen if they already have a replacement lined up. Which I very highly doubt.

Agreed - Gainey isn't going anywhere until the ownership situation is straightened out so his press conference will be pretty much nothing we haven't already heard - injuries, distractions, bla bla bla. We might hear about some details regarding injuries though.

What I mean is, he won't step down, he won't be fired, nothing monumental today anyway.

Give it a month though, lol.

Bob did alright as a GM, sadly the key additions went down to injuries as well as key players already in place. Add to that the massive struggles of the young core and you have an explosive situation.
