    Normally, a radio interview shouldn't get it's own thread by a non gm, but I found there to be enough nuggets that it shouldn't be buried.

    This is a summary of his interview with a link to the full one.

    Some of the interesting tidbits:

    The knives are starting to come out more and more. I honestly believe Bergevin would've been fired by now if he didn't get that long extension. Molson knows it's a sunk cost and has to deal with it for at least another year.

    Molson should fire this clown, now...and take accountability for that pi$$ poor extension....but by not firing him, then neither he nor Bergevin are showing any accountabilty for this hot mess.
    The standards have fallen so low, very sad for this once proud organization.

    I'll accept not spending to the cap of it's to pay for Bergevin's firing.

    Don't think he's on a shorter leash because Molson was stepping in. Molson just saw how everyone in attendance looked at Bergevin like he was on some crazy pills.

    Its funny how many millions he has lost in playoff revenue the last 3 years, with this putz in charge. 2 years no playoffs, one year with a first round exit. Millions gone, fan favorite traded and 20 million tied up with Price and Webs next season. How on earth could you let this happen to your storied franchise? Is Molson as dumb as he looks? I guess?

    And how much more money has he lost paying Bergevin's friends ?

    He has millions locked up on Therrien, Julien and Muller next year.

    Most of his friends just got extensions, Molson would have to pay 40 - 50 million if everyone who deserved it was fired.

    Essentially, with managements contracts and Weber/Price on awful deals, we're not looking at any sort of good outcome in the next few years.

    That looks more like MB's train of thought, only you can usually hear a monkey hitting cymbals in the background.

    We now go live to Marc Bergevin's thought process.

    Funny story about that song, if you note, there's a 10 hour version of that on youtube. In Finnish universities, they have student speak-easies. I had the misfortune of living across the road from one. They had large speakers pointed at the neighborhood. Well, one day, they let 'er rip with the 10 hour version at full blast. I'm surprised they didn't get molotoved.

    MB didn't spend like 10M this year, practically makes up for another 1st round loss.

    IMO, Molson just thinks that the way MB (and the PR team) have transmitted the info needs to be corrected, that is why he stepped in on some questions in the PC. IMO, it has nothing to do with a shorter leash.

    Molson added in the presser that he wants the Habs to explain some moves better and I think people (Basu inclued) only have wishfull thinking when they "think" Molson is "trying" to say something else then what he is saying.

    Oh yes for sure he is as dumb as his GM. I don’t see any other explanation

    I feel like if I was a billionaire owner, I would also be too cheap to just lose out on millions by firing him...especially considering the fact that he'll already be losing money next year by missing the playoffs again (probably).

    I think Bergevin will get fired at the end of next year when the habs will be closer to being a playoff team. Get a new GM and start pushing for the playoffs again.

    Or win Dahlin and fire Bergevin and start pushing for the playoffs immediately with Brisebois or something.

    But then again...the guy just saved 10m this year by being way below the cap...surely that offsets Bergevin's contract? Just fire the buffoon

    There's something weird about all that cap space and not signing Markov and Radulov. It's like they wanted to tank but didn't tell anyone. Things wouldn't have looked much different if they went all tank so...

    Hahaha maybe. That is the secret plan?!?

    They save on cap space to make money like they made the playoffs and “reset” the team without losing a penny.

    lol
