If it was gonna be Roy, they would not have rushed to fire Gauthier, cuz they would have already known who the new GM was and that Roy was gonna be coach. And if Roy was gonna be GM, they would have waited.
Knowing this would have put pressure on Roy, they would have accommodated him.
So we can rule out Mr. Roy. Thank goodness.
Unless he's just another outsider throwing his hat in the ring. Hard to believe Savard would be interested, since their stated goals are stability and respectability. And we know their history.
Savard himself has hardly shown respectability in his comments over the last several months, I'm surprised Molson tapped him.
I want nothing less than the next Sam Pollock (or someone who can get Zach Parise to sign in Mtl).
