So does the owner want to go all in and make the playoffs for money? Or does he want to better his franchise for the future. He's a business man, which route is better for business? I wouldn't know what motives he has.

but having PG work the phones "pretending" to be in charge, only to have him check-in and run everything by Molson for approval is just as bad.


RIch kid owner with a toy he wants to play with is a very VERY dangerous thing... See NYI

******* ******** ‏ @***************
#Habs very much in on Brassard of #CBJ. Hearing asking price is 1st rd pick. #TBLightning and #Panthers also interested.
If the asking price is indeed a 1st round pick forget Brassard.. In no way shape or form would I trade the Habs 1st round pick this year for Derrick Brassard.

Molson is Gm. But do you think he call's the shot without any help ? Come on. It's a million dollars business here.... Molson has alot of consultant.

Well come on, realistically, Molson is going to fire PG at seasons end, would you give a lame duck gm full reign without coming back to you? Its what I would do. Once he hires a new GM that he wants I'm sure this won't be the case.

I wouldn't give our 2nd for Brassard. He hasn't done anything to prove he's worth trading for, considering his contract.

It's generally a unwritten rule, leave the GM and coach alone to do their work. You can talk in meetings about vision, direction, but once you start doing Xs and Os and start pushing for operations decisions that means the GM or coach in question is done. It's not a crazy thing because Molson likely isn't working the phones or doing any real GM work. He's just telling Gauthier what to do as in "I no longer trust you, and you no longer have carte blanche, you report to me and we're going this direction". Pierre is still acting GM but his vision, his direction, are no longer part of the plan. That's what I assume anyway.

Doesn't matter. Everything Molson has done this season just further cements him as a meddling owner.

But serious. I'm kinda concerned for my ****ing team. This is a pivotal year for us and we could finally start the process of turning this franchise around for good. Not sure I'd want the owner calling the shots. No matter if it's just approving or disapproving a trade, it's a conflict of interest in the franchise.

people need to ****ing relax. it's not only Molson. Why was silent Bob watching game in Washington last night? no one finds that odd? whether gainey is better or worse than Gauthier is debatable...all those ****** gainey deals had head of pro scouting - pierre gauthier's fingerprints on them too. point is, looks like Gauthier is out and many are happy lol
but i can assure you Molson isn't the 'new gm' he's simply stepped with gilmore and gainey - maybe others to make sure this guy doesn't **** things up further
