Talk about hitting the nail on the head.
The only relatively encouraging sign was Molson correcting bergevin a few times. I also wonder if Molson is forcing Bergevin to go to all of these different media outlets. Hopefully the leash has shortened to a stranglehold if Bergy is still in his position.
Arpon Basu is one of if not the best guys in media covering the Canadiens . His articles are always a great read and his questions are usually bang on . I enjoy listening to what he has to say in the morning with McKenna and the boys .
Muller can stay. Julien I think can stay too. Daigneault/Lefebvre/Lacroix can all go
He might be OK at locating some diamonds in the rough, like byron. Scouting might be a better place for him. As long as it doesn't inlclude juniors, centers, or dmen.
I never thought he'd go for "attitude" as this end of season's buzzword. To me, it's just an attribute of character, so he's just recycling.
Nor did I anticipate Geoff's improved food and beverage pitch -- something you'd make when all else is going well.
Next buzzline to come out of MB will be "I didn't see it coming" -- he's so full of himself that he can't see how there is anything he could do that could lead to him getting canned.
More machismo than machina.
Attitude, attitude ! - La Presse+
Too bad he didnt mentionned the Shaw and Drouin trade, the Alzner signing and the Price extension, but this is good.
Great write-up. Thanks for sharing.
Personally not a fan or Arpon. Sorry guys. He's agressive on social media but a puss during press conferences.
Sorry to hear that. Funny the stuff someone may miss. There is no place for that. We already had to put up with a failed Hab ex-scout mangler who parlayed 3 months of part-time scouting into the type of self-aggrandizement that involves disrespecting anyone who has a different opinion than he does. I thought we had already seen that record play. How much worse can Basu really be?
He's really not bad at all?
Sums it up pretty well.
I loved this line
I am not the best at it.
I hope someone can do it instead of me.
I hope you're referring to Basu and not the fake scout mangler.
Look at what a year spent with the fake scout, did to Brian Wilde ...
The other guy has rose coloured glasses that are opaque.
Not sure if it was to Basu or elsewhere, but Molson did say that the decision to trade PK Subban was made months before the deal went down.
I'm surprised no one has made as big a deal about it as i thought they would.
Is this what he meant by being more transparent. Once PK was gone, this information could have been given. Why wait 21 months?
Not to mention a very worrisome 25 game streak of potentially the worst hockey in franchise history. The team straight up said they had no identity....If it weren't for getting all the bounces to start the season they wouldn't have made the playoffs. It's been 3 seasons where the team is trending downward in terms of quality of play, right as Bergevin's team started taking its shape. I can't ignore this correlation, there is too much causation here to say it's unrelated.
Liked this one too.
