    I know this isn’t a story on here yet but I really don’t want Pierre as GM. I don’t see how a guy who is like 10+ years removed from being personal on a team and on TV can be put into a GM position. I’d rather have someone else.

    Literally everyone not wearing a Habs jersey is inclined to agree, Mr. Bergevin. Lead by Michel Therrien and his meltdowns and squalling and endless river of tears, maturity is the furthest thing from the Habs’ mind. Maybe hire a respectable coach instead. Just a thought.

    All the whining and diving that’s encouraged by Therrien doesn’t help the perception of maturity much. That being said, his refusal to try and save the legs of his top players seemed to do them in.

    Where are you Joey? I cant believe you haven’t posted your daily 5 paragraph editorial on the Habs today…….who will we have to make us all feel like hockey peasants if you wont bless us with your vast knowledge?

    The habs had a great run but unfortunately we used up too much mojo on the bruins. The only real failure this season was the Vanek experiment and perhaps Gionta’s goal drought come playoff time. I actually very much enjoyed the ride. I think we got a great gm and the jury is still out on Therien but I think more of him after the playoff run than I did when they hired him.
