Dorian in running to be Habs GM...

Is what the healthy scratches were talking about. They pointed out that Pierre originally came from the Habs organization.

I only caught the tail end of the segment, so not sure if it was speculation on their part or some concrete evidence.

Either way that would be a massive blow to lose our top scout...

I'd be happy for him, but kind of pissed at the same time. He is one of the main reason our drafts have been so good since 08'.

He was with the Habs for 11 years, so its very possible this could happen.

I believe it was Murray Wilson who did point out as well, that he beleives that the Habs need to go with someone with some experience.

I think Jim Nill was mentioned as well...

Every time a GM search comes up, Paul Fenton's name really should be at the top of the list.

As for Dorian, is this going to be another Peter Chiarelli situation where they may hire him, but they don't get him until after the draft so the Habs can't steal all the good prospects we've identified?

NOoooooooooooooo. We need a few more years of Dorion and T. Murray. I want one of them to be our next GM. Don't let Chiarelli 2.0 happen.

It would really suck to lose him, especially to a division rival. If it was a western team interested in him then I would be disappointed but happy for him, but not to a division rival. Either way I would think (and hope) there are other candidates who are much more likely to end up with the job.

Good for Dorion, hope he gets it. People who excel at their work deserve job promotions. Why would you hope he gets held back? Tim Murray is obviously the heir apparent here. Glad the Red Wings didn't have the same attitude with MacLean.

And Fenton and Nill don't have a hope in hell of getting the Montreal job. They don't parlez-vous.

No one will argue he deserves a promotion, the problem is no one wants him to get it in Montreal.

His name is Pierre. I'm pretty sure It's illegal to be named Pierre and not speak french.

If Dorion does not get the GM job he is bound to wind up with an assistant GM job eventually. Curious to see who would be the next director of player personel, maybe Lowes?

Promote T. Murray to gm and Dorion to assistant when Brian retires. Case solved

He's the lead candidate to be our assistant GM in the next couple years. Sure it's possible that he gets picked up before that but I'd be very surprised if he got the Habs job.

He might want to see his work through in Ottawa because it's starting to look pretty impressive.

If the Habs end up getting McGuire or Dorion I might be forced to like them a little bit.

He's helping build something that could turn into something special. He may not want to leave that at this time.

Why would he do that when he can get a massive pay raise?

Drafting seems to be Murray's strength, so Dorion would be a pretty big loss IMO.

Because money isn't everything for some people. He may be paid 'enough' already. Maybe he really enjoys what he's doing here. Maybe he doesn't want the pressure in MTL. Maybe 'gene has already promised him a position.
