I agree the Canadiens team sucks but he has only been GM for 2 years. That isn't enough time to prove anything. The team was in bad shape when he took over and it is in bad shape still although a lot better with the #3 overall pick. Still, that team needs a lot of work and it certainly wasn't going to be fixed in 2 years. I'm sure in 2014 is when Bergevin will be fired and whoever their coach is now and Habs fans can parade on whatever team's board signs him.
FYI: You don't need to come here and tell us how sorry you feel for us... we don't go to your board and post about how sorry we are for the bleak future of the Habs. Great, you think Gauthier sucks... we read it already from the other 20 Habs posters who came here and said it.
Good luck to the Hawks this coming season. Win the west.
Habs fans will know this soon enough. I mean, when you sign Brandon Prust to a 2.5mil contract for 4 years, something is wrong with you.
yeah, but the Habs had an unreal draft...no saying it was all Bergevin (or any Bergevin...given he's just shown up there).
we'll see...i don't think there's any reason for negative back and forth b/w Mtl and Chi fans. The big thing that worries me about Gauthier (and while I watch the Habs on the ice I don't pay much attention to their front office) is that Gauthier was apparently involved in Gomez/McD.
...also, just so i can be mocked even more...the banning of cheese of all things on a charter flight leaves me perplexed and confused.
picking Galchenyuk is not really some good drafting when it's more like a gimme pick at this point.
If the draft is good or not won't be known before 2016
100% agree with you re: galchenyuk...for me, he was a 100% perfect pick for the habs - and had they picked anyone else (including forsberg, grig, etc...even gone D with all those players) i would have laughed...but if you look at that draft as a whole it was a good draft for the Habs...Bubba, that simply can't be denied. it's obvious you don't win a draft immediately. nevertheless, if you look at the draft in an immediate sense (which is only what you can do at this point)...Mtl was very smart about things.
I think the Bozon pick was more of a perfect match for the Habs. I liked Bozon predraft and had hoped the Habs would select him.
Lotto picks should be solid picks but as far as #3s or lotto picks, not always. Don't remind me of Cam Barker. From a point production standpoint, the pickings were slim after Ovechkin and Malkin. A bad draft year.
Cant say who has a better drafting record between Gauthier and Kelly. Im not impressed with either.
