I'm going to bite my tongue and hope that Sloth reads your post.

Bergevin is the new GM. Presser at 2pm.

McGuire was runner-up in case Bergevin declined. Brisebois third choice.

The Habs are going to buy out Gomez's contract.

I REALLY hope that is fake news that's floating around. It makes no sense at all and will immediately sour me on the new management team.

I still doubt that they will buy him out. The terms are too punishing.

It's either $10M and $0 cap hit to hide him in Hamilton for the last two seasons of his contract, or $6.67M in salary and the following cap hit if he is bought out:
2012-13: $3,523,810
2013-14: $4,523,810
2014-15: $1,666,667
2015-16: $1,666,667 (from Capgeek.com)
Not worth the penalty to save $3.33M in actual salary IMO.
I don't know however if the No-Motion Clause restricts Gomez from being sent down to the AHL. That would be a whole different story.

Heck, I would try re-entry waivers before I try buyout. If Gomez was picked up by another team on re-entry waivers his cap hit on the Habs would be:
2012-2013: $3,678,571
2013-2014: $0

Either way, the following cap hit is simply unacceptable:
2012-2013: $7,357,143
2013-2014: $7,357,143

Fuck that rumour. The Habs just hired a new GM and there is still the slim possibility of an amnesty clause with the new CBA. No one has a clue what they are gonna do but I wouldnt be a fan of that buy-out based on the first two years. Just suck it up and bury him in the minors if need be.

Confirmed by my contact at the NHL that a No Trade Clause (NTC) does not mean that a player is immune to being sent down to the AHL. If it was a No Motion Clause (NMC) that's different. Gomez thankfully has a NTC.

I knew it!
Not only was Gauthier in charge of pro scouting when the awful Gomez deal happened, meaning he liked what he saw in the horribly slumping Gomez in New York, but he also has his fingerprints on the whole deal.

  • Edmonton Journal Said:

Why did Habs trade McDonagh to N. Y.?

There’s been much talk in Montreal of beefing up the Canadiens pro-scouting department now that Marc Bergevin has arrived as the ever-smiling general manager.

Despite the dour Pierre Gauthier, the former GM, nobody can say Montreal’s amateur scouts have failed in their duties in the last few years.

The 2007 draft brought the Habs Ryan McDonagh, Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban in the first 43 picks. How is that for a trifecta?

Oh yeah, McDonagh isn’t in Montreal anymore. He played 53 minutes for the New York Rangers in that triple overtime game against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday. Seeing McDonagh take that wallop from Matt Hendricks, the one that almost ripped his head from his shoulders, then see him play another 30 or so shifts as if the hit were, as the Monty Python actors used to say is “just a flesh wound,” is to see a true warrior in action.

The trade of McDonagh to the Rangers to get Scott Gomez came on Bob Gainey’s watch when he was the GM. This should tarnish Gainey’s reputation for knowing who can play in the NHL and who can’t, but several sources say Gauthier’s fingerprints were really all over this one.

“Bob’s daughter had died (swept overboard at sea while working on a training ship) before this and he was letting Pierre (his confidant) do a lot of the work. Pierre didn’t like McDonagh, for some reason. Saw him play in the world juniors and didn’t like him. The scouts loved McDonagh, though. When he was traded, they couldn’t believe it,” said a source close to the scene.

“At least make up your mind on McDonagh after he’s played a few seasons.”

Instead, McDonagh was dealt on June 30, 2009 while he was still attending the University of Wisconsin, after he had finished his junior year there. He had just turned 20.

“The scouts didn’t think he was going to put up a lot of points, but he was big (213 pounds) and he competed,” said the source.

How would he look as Subban’s safety blanket in Montreal today? McDonagh, Subban, Josh Gorges and a healthy Andrei Markov on defence? Pretty good.

McDonagh for Gomez, who might well be buried in the minors next season so the Habs can save his $7.35 million US salary-cap hit, has to go down as one of the most one-sided trades in the last few years.

Bergevin, while too nice of a guy to shovel dirt on his predecessors, is probably grinding his teeth over that one.

Gomez has gone from 59 points to 38 points to 11 points in his three years in Montreal. He won two Stanley Cup rings in New Jersey and has 99 points in 140 career playoff games, but he looks done. How can that be? He’s only 32. Ray Whitney of the Phoenix Coyotes turn 40 on Tuesday. Teemu Selanne of the Anaheim Ducks turns 42 in July.

Gauthier truly is the king of the douchecastle.

Lots of rumours floating around regarding Larry Robinson. In an interview with TVA Sports, Larry Robinson's agent confirmed what Bryan Hayward told me earlier this year, in that two years ago Robinson called the Canadiens offering his services and Gauthier never called him back. The agent SLAMS the old management and offers hope that Robinson would be willing to listen if Montreal called him. Very frank interview, especially given that the Devils are still in the playoffs.

33 years ago today, in the 6th game of the semi-finals, the Boston Bruins took a "too many men on the ice" penalty with 2:34 remaining in the 3rd period. The Habs scored on the the ensuing power play, and the rest is history!

That pic of Chara and Patch might be misleading. I would rather see a video of the entire handshake to see if Patch made eye contact with him.

Final bullet put into Randy Cunneyworth. He was as professional as he could be under terrible circumstances. I gained a lot of respect for him, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one. Makes me despise Gauthier that much more.

Fuck the Journal De Montreal who has taken repeated potshots at Cunneyworth since he was dropped into the head coaching position.

So not only do you take Pittsburgh's sloppy seconds but you're willing to swallow your own regurgitation.

Good job, good effort!

Red Fisher has retired. He's the first sports journalist I read on a regular basis but that was back in the day you had to actually buy a paper. Imagine.

Cheers to Red. He deserves it.
