    Wow.  They finally cut off the head of the snake.  I heard Scott Gomez has offered to pay for his moving expenses.

    Let's see who they hire . Not sure why they kept him this long if they knew they were going to fire him why not do it before the trade deadline.

    He was bad, but Ganey was bad too. He's the one that did all those signings. Gauthier made the situation worse. Hopefully they hire Mike Milbury now and keep the destruction coming.

    Mike Milbury with the francophone media?!? I'd pay money to attend his first presser.

    Instead of being mad at Cunneyworth Hab fans and the Montreal press should have directed their ire at Gauthier - or whomever hired him.

    en tant que francophone, je suis très triste.
    Je préfère avoir une mauvaise équipe avec un gestionnaire de français langue générale

    I would pay a small percentage of his salary just to make that happen. I look forward to the day he beats a reporter with his own shoe!!

    A shame really. I liked where Montreal was headed with him at the head.

    Love watching the Habs in disaray. Keep everything the way it is.

    Since there is no such thing as intelligent hockey talk on Boston sports radio, I often listen to TSN 990 out of Montreal while I'm at work. Typically, they have Tony Marinaro in the morning (he is excellent by the way. worth listening to). Tony is on vacation so they have someone filling in for him this week. It was interesting to hear the host talking about the relationship between Gauthier and team ownership. He also said that he had some freinds in the Boston organization and told the story of how Neely and Chiarelli also have a strained relationship. His source told him that Chiarelli's job was in serious jeopardy last year had they lost to the Habs. Julien was a definite gonner had they lost. Most interesting though is that Neely gave serious thought to bringing in Mike Milbury to replace Julien. Wow !

    Oh Well. Go Bruins and may the fall of the Habs have no limit.

    Ed, if that is true then the B's seriously averted disaster on many levels. Milbury would have turned this team into Islanders 2.0 within a year.

    All I can say is THANK GOD!!!

    I don't know if I would believe any of that, but I guess it is possible. We are just lucky that Neely is the Prez, not the GM. Great athlete and player, yes. Smart guy who gets how to run a modern franchise? I doubt it. Neely couldn't fire Chiarelli though, that decision would fall on Jacobs himself. And it wouldn't be Neely who would bring in Milbury, that would fall on Chiarelli. So I put little faith in those rumours. They are just trying to make habs fans feel better by saying it could have been the Bruins in disarray if the Habs had won game 7.

    Actually, I'm guessing that is is pretty accurate. If you remember the end of the regular season last year the B's were having a tough time going down the stretch and there were many people on these boards calling for Julien to be fired. There were also those who were saying that Chiarelli should go also. I can definitely see where Neely would have been thinking about making changes. we all know that the story had a happy ending and everyone kept their jobs but there was a stretch there where things were very tenuous at best.
    Also, you may not be a fan of Neely the businessman but make no mistake that Chiarelli answers to Neely and Neely could fire him if he chose to and if he wanted to bring in Milbury, Neely would be the guy to do it.
    Last time I checked President is above GM.

    No way Chiarelli would've been axed if the Bs lost that game. Julien would be a sure goner.

    The way I recall, the talk at the time was that PC did everything in his power with some slick cap management, drafting and signings to put talent on the ice, but Julien was too stubborn to change his ways and make it work. Thornton instead of Seguin. Ryder getting too many minutes. Not breaking up a struggling top line. Watering down the D with odd pairings. Not using timeouts. 4th line in crucial game moments. Not playing Rask enough down the stretch. Not going to Rask in Games 3 and 4 when Thomas was shaky in 1 and 2.

    All of it was overblown, mind you, but that was the talk.

    That's correct.  Gainey is the one that had the 5 year plan that failed miserably.  The only good thing he did was draft Price.  Subban was mostly Trevor Timmins head of scouting.  Also the Gomez trade ,   Grabovsky's rights to speak to Sundin ,  Ribiero for Janne Niinimaa are all very very bad moves from Gainey.

    Roy will only be approached to become coach for the Habs but if Quebec might be getting a team that is where Roy's priorities would be,  as the GM of the new franchise in Quebec.

    You Bruin fans are going to love this...  everyone has and is talking about Pierre McGuire becoming the GM.  He's already met up with Molson about a month ago.
    My bet is on this.

    As for Mike Milbury, never as a GM but he was a good coach and that's not by me the Bruins fan ,  it's from former players that were coached by him.  Also Pierre Mcguire said it ..oh well so much for credibility.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly.  However, the firing will have an upside if it means that Pierre McGuire will be removed from the airwaves.

    I saw McGuire say that he's happy on the airwaves and has no desire to be a coach or GM right now. Either way, I'm a little surprised that he's got the NHL resume that he does as he really seems to be pretty dense regarding actual game play sometimes. I can't believe that imbecile was an actual assistant coach let alone, a Cup winner.

    Next Habs GM appears to be Julien Brisebois, currently the asst GM with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Next Habs head coach is likely Patrick Roy.  He's reportedly bought a home in the Montreal suburb of Brossard - next to the team's practice facility.

    I can see McGuire running around and screaming like a little girl now. I think the Habs should only be allowed to have GM's named Pierre.

    The vision I see is truly priceless.

    Whomever takes over that club might have his hands full rebuilding it.  CapGeek says the likes of Rene Bourque, Tomas Plekanec, Andrei Markov, Brian Gionta and at $7 million plus per Scott Gomez all have NTCs.  Might be a hurdle to get over.  Especially Gomez.
