As Pierre Boivin's replacement. I wrote the return but it's not like he left really....

Well he still holds all the power anyway behind the scenes (Price trade) so he may as well step back into a senior position.

Why did Geoff Molson state that he would be the next president then? I don't believe it.

Of course BG could come back in the same capacity as Scotty Bowman in Chicago but he won't be president.

Agreed. Gainey is a disgrace to the entire Habs organisation.

I honestly would be fine with that. BG's 5 year plan didn't pan out... Seriously though, who's responsible for icing the best team we've had in about 10-15 years?

I read the title of this thread, "THE RETURN OF BOB GAINEY" as his return to the NHL and that Yzerman signed Bob to a two-way contract in Tampa bay.

I guess I was wrong.

Maybe not. Gainey WAS always known as a two-way guy.

Steve Simmons is an idiot.

Molson is the President, already stated on the website and by Molson himself.

I can see him in a Vice-President role.

Yesssssss... An Hall of Famer multi-cup Winner as a player and GM (with a good post-season apperance ratio as GM) surely cannot reach the height of a genius multigenerational beer-selling company owner when it comes to being the President of a hockey franchise. . The force is strong in this one

It always amazes me how much disrespect Bob Gainey gets even after all the pride, heart, courage he showed while wearing the jersey or managing the Habs. Such a great man deserves way much more respect.
