The new GM need to have history as a GM or he have to be from the organisation if he have zero GM experience.
Well our new GM by Interim has been pretty bad as our pro scout so far so I don't know why we should be impressed by him

It's completely unfair, because we have to say no to many qualified candidates based on the fact he can't speak french..

Nawwww Really?

thats my biggest point of frustration with this team. talk about trying to play poker with half the cards missing.

i'm sure you and everyone else not caught up in this antiquated view feel that the prerequisite for a GM and coach is that they can speak HOCKEY. As long as the GM and coach can communicate with their peers and players then thats all i ask in terms of language.

i'm with ya 100% on this one obviously.

well we don't know that for sure. look at Philly's situation.

Holmgren was slated to be an interim Gm as well. ( not that he didn't turn the that team around mind you )

I will like we're always going to have to settle for less-qualified candidates here in Montreal. It's complete ********.

You hire the best guy for the job. Who gives a **** which language they speak. If the best candidate speaks french..all the power to him. I just want the best guy available..period.

Do you guys think this can happen?

I'm not a fan of Martin as coach and I'm even less of a fan of him as GM so I hope not.

I just want to win too, but in Montreal the GM job come with alot of pressure and you have to deal with alot of things.

Can you imagine how many time people in the street come to Bob with trade proposal and bothering him with ton of "you should do this" and of top of that you have to deal with rapid media and the pressure to win now. Not a easy job and not a job made for everyone

Bob did a great job here in the circonstance and I hope the new GM will have cold blood like him

No for JM as GM, he should of predicted last season that he would coach MTL, and traded Bouwmeester for Greg Stewart. But seriously, I don't like his GM record, and think Boucher needs maybe another full season or two in Hamilton then I'd love to see him.

Martin seems to be a terrible coach so a change would be nice, I don't know how he would be as GM though.

I think it would be better to bring Boucher at the beginning of a season, so he can show the players his system ("wolf pack"). Coming late like this he would have to use the actual system and make minor adjustments...

Mcguire is a guy very few folks can stomach listening to once or twice a week. You want a guy like that as GM?
