    Should have been fired earlier. So, will Patrick Roy be the next GM?

    this is going to get interesting...

    I'm not sure how I feel about Roy becoming GM (if that is what ends up happening). He seems a little too fiery and impulsive to me.

    Other candidates being bandied about are Julien Brisebois (assistant GM in Tampa.... cap whiz from what they say), Pierre Maguire (his name always comes up), Claude Loiselle (assistant GM in Toronto), Pat Brisson (super-agent), Jim Nill (assistant GM in Detroit), and Vinnie Damphousse (his name started showing up a few weeks ago...)

    I think Jim Nill is probably the most highly regarded guy on this list, but I have no idea if he speaks French or if he is even willing to leave Detroit.

    I think they will want to act fast to get a team in place early to prepare for the draft and do a full organizational review. I wonder what happens to Timmins? I think he has done great job finding talent in the later rounds of drafts, but his 1st rounders have left a little to be desired. In his defense, insiders say he wanted Carter over Kostitsyn and Giroux over Fischer, but in both cases was over-ruled by Gainey...
    And what I'm saying to you is, yes, I found a flaw... I've been very distressed by that fact.

    Jim Nill or Marc Bergevin (asst GM Chicago) would be my 2 to select from.


    and I hope that language has nothing to do with whom they select....take the best person for the job.

    I wish this were true :-(

    Apparently its confirmed that the Habs have hired Marc Bergevin as the new GM.

    Still waiting on the official announcement from the Habs, but confirmations have leaked from both Chicago and Montreal.

    Don't know much about him, but he is coming from a successful organization and he isn't Pierre McGuire so it seems like a good choice.

    he helped build the Hawks to where they are.....though its not hard when you have a couple cornerstones like Kane and Toews but he's worked his way up through the ranks.

    He was a long time player...



    I really like the hire.

    just hope the stupid moronic Montreal media let him do his thing and build a Habs team back to prominence!

    looks like Rick Dudley is coming over from the Scumbags....gonna be the Asst GM...

    and on HNIC they were talking that Joel Quenneville could possibly be on the Habs radar for the HC position....

    I think the Dudley hire would be a good one. Highly regarded guy across the league...

    Don't know about Quenneville. I think he is a good coach and certainly has the experience, but I don't think he is fluent enough to satisfy the whiners in the media. I can just imagine the series of Bertrand Raymond articles.

    why Raymond doesn't just translate what the HC/GM etc says in English to his followers in French is beyond me...

    They want the HC/GM etc want to be able to speak french, why not the other way around???



    oh yeah, its OK if its a Mike Babcock type of signing...
    but then Babcock went to McGill......you know what I mean....
