Hear, hear. Somewhere in the 80s/90s era, and definitely under Molson's ownership, the focus of the Montreal Canadiens business became the brand, the history, rather than the performance. Chasing Bowman out the door in favour of a corporate lapdog was definitely the first major error and we've seen the organization make error after error after error in the same vein ever since. Always protecting the precious brand, the precious image. Add in the fact that, without the Nordiques, the Canadiens have the Quebec/francophone fanbase held perfectly captive, and it's a toxic mix. Until that organizational culture is burned to the ground, completely eradicated, and the focus put back upon building a Stanley Cup calibre hockey team, nothing will meaningfully change. The Canadiens will continue to spin their wheels in the mediocre muck for years, decades. All while selling (false) hope, nostalgia, and their precious brand image. And they'll do so for as long as the fanbase lets them get away with it. Geoff Molson certainly is not the agent of that change so desperately needed. He's just another corporate toady who cares primarily about the brand. So until he's gone - and we could be damn stuck with him for a long, long time - ... well. We all gonna be singing the same old sad song again and again and again.
