I doubt very much that Molson listens to fans or self important pundits regarding hiring his GMs. Or any other owner, for that matter.
Bergevin also brought in Petry, Tartar, Armia and Weber – and let us remember the sagacity of the fans and pundits over that trade.
Yes, if the Habs miss the playoffs next year Bergevin will likely be gone. Yes, “wait until next year,” but really, wait until next year.
I really don’t think the Sharks are rebounding next year after this disaster. It’s re-build time in San Jose.
