Another non-story. Seems like we've got a few of these recently. He helped hire Bergevin. Point final.

....

so wait. He's effectively saying the coach selection was the decision of the GM, and GM alone? That upper manager had little to no interference in the decision-making process?

Unfortunately, just caught the end:

"My ... uh ... thanks ... uh ... to my ... uh ... old friend uh ... Serge Savard ... uh, thanks ... uh ... for ... uh ... coming on the .... uh ... show today."

Love Chris for who he is but as a broadcaster, still has some work to do. Keep it up, buddy.

The only thing Savard ever said is that the GM and the headcoach should be able to speak French because of the Montreal and Quebec markets.

The players voted the coach off the island and how many times has that happened in the Hab's history?

MB's five year plan has become a 1 coach left plan.

Don't leave out the good part like not drafting Denis Savard, to assist Guy Lafleur, instead of driving him away. The real deal for those old time fans remember these strategic screw-ups!

I agree with you Savard is no angel but Grundman drafted Wickenheiser over Denis Savard not Serge

That's the acknowledged best excuse, Grundman didn't now the difference between offence and defence! Someone gave him the advice and Savard the Ultra Conservative was the person to the best of my recollection. Great Dman but big fail as GM, IMHO.

Bah Serge was still a player when Dennis was drafted.After the year Serge played two more years in Winnipeg.So Serge had nothing to do with Dennis not being drafted-he played 2 more years with Winnipeg

All of this aside, the finger was firmly pointed in Serge's direction at the time. The result was Lafleur was relegated to checking roles, which was a slap in the face for him. I was as much a Hab fan then as I'm now and aware of all the rumors rampant amongst the fans, internet just opens it up for others to be made aware of these past transgressions, which have led to the ultimate demise of our franchise to the present state.

I agree with you your pts are valid.But why did Molson ask Savard for advise-Molson needs to be blamed to-he is the one who went to Serge Savard

Irving Grundman drafted Wickenheiser....

Lafleur needed to clean up his life and habits. His carreer was going down the drain and he was often injured. He decided to quit instead of taking his destiny in his own hands. Too bad, he lost 4 years of hockey and possibly would had been able to revamp his game.

What are you talking about-just Bull.Lafleur led team in pts in last full season 1983-84.From 1980-83 he missed around 60 games.Other than his car accident in which he missed a few games tell me where he could have cleaned his life.In 1981 he would have had another 100 pts season if not hurt same in 82-83.

Lafleur was a still a good player. We just basically drove his game into the ground.

And... once again, we didn't just trade the guy. Why? Because we CAN'T trade Lafleur. So the guy retires and then comes back and plays for the Rangers four years later and is a point per game player. Another example of us not maximizing an asset.

I love Guy Lafleur. Favourite player of all-time. But if you're going to force him into retirment, then deal him to Pittsburgh for draft picks. That's what Pollock would've done.
