Any of Damphousse, Brisebois or Carriere would be dreadful. We'll be going through the same **** next year.

We need experience. We need a clean slate. No more people from this Gainey posse.

This title deserves some praise :

Monsieur Gauthier congédié

See what happens when you have competent journalists to write the news? Well, this is where the Cons are about to cut... again.

Reminds me of something I posted over the weekend:

No chance in Hell I'm letting PG anywhere near the Habs' lottery pick - even on a photoshopped pic.

Next time Gauthier puts his hands on a lottery cage will be in his local town in Vermont.

Basically Gagnon is saying it'll be Damphousse with Serge Savard as his tutor.

That would be...horrible.
Damphousse...oh God another weakling.

How is this THAT bad...Damphousse knows a lot about the salary cap and stuff. Savard doesnt but he can teach Vincent how to build a team etc.

Would you want Jacques Martin as the GM of that team? He was GM once... so he isn't totally clueless as to how to run an NHL team.

I just hope, unless we get a very good experimented man, that he will leave TT alone for the draft. If the new GM messes up the draft because he wants more truculence over talent I will be ****ing pissed.

I'm so afraid they're going to pick Brisebois "strongly suggested" by Gainey. Puppet Master for Life!

That would have a giant potential to be godawful. Probably not Houle bad, but worse than Gauthier easily.

Hopefully the days of under shopping players and losing almost every trade is a thing of the past.

I don't think he'd be ideal, but I think we could do a lot worse.

I didn't expect to see this thread here this morning.. I expected it the day after the season ended..

Since PG pretty much knew he was a goner maybe he left with 5 games to go hoping the change would inspire the Habs to win their last 5 games and screwing up their top pick.. Just a way to say screw you to everyone..

Anyway good news.. Hope Gainey follows him out the door too.

I know a lot about the salary cap and stuff too. We need to put an end to this no experience BS. Put someone who knows how to run the show in this position! This is Montreal, not Columbus. If you have no experience, there's no way you're going to be able to handle this market.

Also a Leafs fan coming in peace, but I live in Montreal so obviously know the team, and my lord this is a long time coming. Gauthier was horrible. You guys are already better.

I like this thread.

Everyone is scared of who's going to be the new GM, but everyone is happy of the old one being gone.

How about you guys post some name instead ?

From the link:

Quote:
« Merci à M. Molson et toute l'organisation du Canadien. Adieu et bonne chance », a réagi Gauthier sur Twitter, quelques instants après l'annonce.
What?

That's a fake account.

Very happy about this. He did two things this year that were absolutely unforgivable and a direct cause of our problems this year and handicapping for the future.

1) Not knowing his team - the Habs have lived the last 4 + years off of the PP which had been ranked top 5. They had struggled to score 5 on 5 and basically got bailed out by an exceptional PP. PG needed to know his team and needed to know that we had to make sure our PP was taken care of. PG re-signed Markov and let Wiz go. Not in-of-itself a bad move, but not having a backup in case Markov was not ready buried us leading him to panic and

2) trade for Kaberle - Last year he picked up Wiz and that really helped. The few games we were w/o Markov and prior to Wiz we were a terrible PP and lost many games. So PG tried to do the same thing and picked up TK. TK has certain skills on the PP but not what we needed. Part of PK's bad year offensively is part of this as well. PG not only didn't fix the problem by bringing in TK, he brought in a terrible contract, a lesson he should have learned with his involvement with the team and Gomez.

He needed to go and I am only frustrated that Molson did not make this move 2 weeks before the deadline.

Not bad. It would be new ideas, a new philosophy from the same old same old. Fresh perspectives. I like it.
