The latest news in the dysfunctional offices of the Montreal Canadiens is that, according to TSN’s Tony Marinaro, as reported by CTV’s Brian Wilde, Geoff Molson has taken over as GM of the Montreal Canadiens. Pierre Gauthier is nothing more than a mouthpiece, and all decisions and negotiating are being made and done by Geoff Molson.
So what does this mean? Well, nothing except that perhaps a man who has never been a hockey manager is now calling the shots for the most storied franchise in hockey history.
That bodes well.
Oh, and the firing of Pierre Gauthier is, apparently, imminent.
