So I guess Denis Morel was the mystery scout we were looking for. Anybody guess that?

surely not something that will translate to the ice but indirectly the best signing the habs could do this summer. more than happy to have him around for longer.

I have nothing to add to this topic... just wanted to post in the thread so you can all see what Bob's expression was like when he heard that he was getting an extension.



GO BOB GO

Well he has a half a smile which probably means he is overjoyed. lol

This is a very good move for the organisation and goes to show that he is doing a good job and he WILL bring the cup to Montreal.

I disagree, it has direct impact on the ice with all the signings and trades he does. We know and can take comfort in the fact that we have someone competant in the front office that won't ruin the team by giving away top end talent for nothing.

There's an English story, for those interested. There's more news in there than just Gainey. Important points:

- Gainey is locked up until 2010

- Gauthier is becoming an assistant GM, but he's also keeping the job of head of professional scouting.

- Julien Brisebois has become VP of Hockey operations, and he and Gainey will share the duties of managing the Bulldogs.

- Doug Gibson has been hired as a pro scout, and is joining Gordie Roberts

- The habs have hired TWO new scouts for the Q, Michel Boucher and Denis Morel, who will both report to Timmins.

I especially like the news of adding two scouts for the Q. They both sound like good scouts. Boucher has spent the last 6 years scouting the Q for the Kings, and Morel spent the last year as an official in the Q. It doesn't look like Morel has ever been a scout before, but Boucher seems to have tons of experience, so hopefully they make a good team.

From the Canadiens website:

Doug Gibson has been hired as a professional scout and will join Gordie Roberts who has been working as a pro scout since 2001.

From this quote it looks like Roberts will be retained and the Canadiens have added three names to replace Andre Savard.

I also like the idea of scouting the Q more heavily. All else being equal, having one or two more francophones on the roster would be a good thing.

Not too ring any alarm bells, but it appears that during Boucher's 2000-2006 tenure, the amount of Q players drafted by LA that have become regular NHLers stands at 0.

Of course, LA never used a 1st round pick on a player from the Q during that time so it obviously reduces the odds of producing a NHLer.

edit: not sure if he had any say on LA's 2006 draft. Seems weird that they would let him have a say in that draft and then let him go merely weeks later.

You're reading my mind....

Guys drafted with probably his input in the last 6 years were:

2000 86th Yannick Lehoux
2004 143rd Eric Neilson
2005 50th Dany Roussin

If he had something to say this year;

11th Jonathan Bernier (more likely a team decision at this rank)
48th Joey Ryan (that scares me a little, never was a fan of his...)

So wasn't that lucky so far.....But again, it doesn't tell the whole story, like he wanted a guy real bad but they as a group decided to go in another direction....

But just the fact that they're adding another body in the Q is great news! And we'll see what Morel does as well.

why would LA draft Q players....but I still agree with you...now Michel Bergeron will have nothing to say about our amateur scout in Québec....
