It's possible Timmins doesn't desire to be a GM or A-GM, you never hear his name mentioned as a potential candidate despite his high degree of competence and his experience, there has to be a reason for that. Being a GM or A-GM is a lot of administrative work and it's quite possible watching games and scouting is what Trevor wants to do.

Even with a front office cap, Timmins would be worth the max! Honestly, I wonder what he makes compared with Bergevin.

Bergevin reduced Timmins role to focus on scouting with Timmin's support. Sometimes people like what their doing and want to stay where they are. As long as Timmins likes his role, the organization and his pay then their wouldn't be a desire to move one unless he wants to be a GM. Not everyone does. Dudley even said he never relished the GM role and preferred the behind the scenes work of an AGM.

Now the big question:

Which ''expert'' on RDS or 98.5 FM will bash this news?

I'm expecting more something like instead of signing Subban he signed a guy that doesn't even draft..........

Why did you hear something? Are Gauthier and Gainey coming back?

No matter who plays for the team on the ice, he's easily our MVP off the ice.

Timmins is the Architect of this organisation.. And he is a hell of good one!!!

The last draft has the potential to be one of the best in Habs history.. Just a perfect draft IMO.

I really wonder if he has the ambition to be a GM. He seems to enjoy his job, and he seems to be very good at it too. I'm not just saying this from his draft record, but it seems like every single person in the NHL world has, at one point or another, spoken about Trevor Timmins' dedication and professionalism. The week after Bergevin started on this team he held a press conference and one of the big points he touched on was how impressed he was with TT.

Never ever going to beat: Roy, Corson, Richer, Svoboda.
Bar none unbeatable.

Fantastic news. Aside from Nokelainen, there's not one Bergy move that I don't really like.

Bergevin is very pragmatic. I instantly approved of everything he's done with one possible exception: the selection of Therrien as coach. However, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt until we see Therrien repeat his past tactical mistakes (that fateful faceoff. for example).

I'm gonna have to agree with you there. But he's gonna make a mistake and you'll see all the honey-moon fans turn on him.

I think his hands were tied a little. The only thing I like about The Therrien hire is that he is a no BS coach. So if players take shifts off, he will correct the problem. I just hope he's not too Bad ass and have players hate him too fast for it..

The important thing now is to see how fast Bergevin reacts if Therrien isn't doing a good job. And often there is only a change when there is a better candidate available which as of now in my opinion is no one.

Back to Timmins, I agree with some posters that not everyone who can be a GM want to be a GM. I would really like being a scout. The pay is good and I would love my job. unlike a lot of people, I'm 37 and have had some ****** stressful jobs in the past and my goal is not to achieve lots of money in the bank and live the fancy life. I'm sure Timmins is making a pretty good salary and he's respected in the office. I wouldn't be surprised if he hated the Gauthier era and he looks at ease in his role with the team now. I hope he's here for many years to come.
