"Realisitc" power structure of THE HABS?

I know that the President is above the GM and the GM is above the coach etc..

Who determines the "style" of play for the team - the coach ( and his ability to form lines / make game time decisons? ) or the GM ( with the personal he collects?)

Or both?

I live by my comments a month back that I BELIEVE both are secure for the long run - just wondering what others think about "WHO" sets the tone for the team, or which of the two is more important?

The Canadiens are a family with a very hierarchical power structure.

Capo di Tutti Capi- Kovalev aka Boss of all Bosses, the Godfather

Capo di Capi Re- George Gillet, the older member who stays in the shadows.

Capo Crimine- Bob Gainey- the Don, Boss of everyday operations

Consigliere- Pierre Boivin, advisor with not much power, answers to Gainey and Kovalev.

Capo Bastone- Carbo, 2nd in Command, close ties with the Capo Crimine.

Capo- Koivu, he leads group of about 20 men. Although rumours are surfacing that there might be a hit on him. The LaPresse family has a lot of bad blood towards him, so we'll have to watch what happens.

Only the Capo di Tutti Capo can authorize something like this though, but the Capo Crimine is going to have a sit down with the Godfather to see what can be worked out. Rumours are that the Don is working with Gillet to see what kind of power the godfather has left and maybe make a move against him.

In New Jersey the GM decides clearly, they've played the same style thorugh several differant coaches.in Montreal I think it's Carbo's decision, but i think Gainey and Carbo are on the same page in this area. the president certainly doesn't decide in Montreal. Boivin is not a hockey guy i don't think. both are important the players the gm provides and the coaches use of the players. to me we are in a little bit of a transiton phase in that regard.
the Samsanov signing could be used as an argumant that Gainey and Carbo aren't on the same page, but to me that was just an exspensive failed experiment.

...and the fact that I just got back into the Sopranos last weekend with the new season makes this even more a propos. Post of the day!

sorry, but the reason I ask is ......

WE are developing a young, offensively-talented TEAM (with a few vet contributors). I believe management are more geared for a defensive style ( considering the coaches are defensive specialists - and the GM is ) How in that system of management, can we let offensive players thrive in an "envirnonment" of scripted defense FIRST?

I believe the Habs have the right formula, moving foward we will see more offense from our team. These offensive players must be defensively responsible first though.(see N.J. Devils)
