    Easy decision to make with Mete. Even our GM was able to make that move ;). Don't agree he benefited "immensely" though

    I agree. I would of sent him back to Juniors as well. Not upset he is back with the Habs but allowing him to dominate in Junior will help him reach his ceiling potential and he can work on his shot.

    Not sure how dominating junior aged players is going to help him reach his potential faster than playing against men.

    Are they actually looking for a new president? Or is this just random radio talk?

    Personally, I think McGuire would be a good hire for a president.

    He would have more time and space to work on the parts of his game that need improvement... His shot! Hard for him to do this in game action with the way we are playing him. All he can do at this point is put it on net and hit the goalie. I really would like him to develop a better shot and score when he gets into scoring chances.

    haha... you said he would be an active President like Roy would be and said that is not the role you want the President to perform. I showed you how the Leafs hired Shanahan and I'm pretty sure you agree he is very active in hockey operations.

    Anyways... I don't agree that comparing Roy to McGuire is a good comparison and fair to Roy.

    You guys can complain about McGuire all you want but at this point I'd hire Bugs Bunny as team president and think things can't possibly get worse.

    It’s not fair to Roy.

    I think McGuire would be far better.

    I have absolutely no idea how involved Shanahan is in the decision process. For all we know, he may be involved in the general direction the team should go in, as any president should do.

    But his actual involvement in the moves, the trades, the drafting... you and I have no idea.

    What the heff? Why? He was never the brightest of the bunch.

    Id rather get one of Roy, Smith, Robinson or even Gainey before Quintal.

    I'm not sure either but teams do this. We did it with Sergachev. I don't think it's terrible to have Mete play with the Habs all year (besides the U20 tournament) but playing against players his own age allows him to work on parts of his game during the game. I would like to see him score a few goals and work on his shot.

    Pretty sure Shanahan is part of strategy and hockey operations. I don't agree McGuire would be far better than Roy.

    I see we're at the point of Pierre McGuire offering his services. That was fun in 2012.

    I think Quintal would be another Bergevin. Same thought process and will focus on depth cause that's the type of players they were as players.

    He is the last guy I would like to see in a management position for the Habs. But any other team can have him, please do.

    That's one candidate
    I know he never played for us but Marty Brodeur would also be another for me anyways

    Same here. It's funny as soon as there is talk about a President or a hire in the Organization in the last couple of years it's Quintal or Damphousse, like by default because of the language. Pretty sad

    I wouldn't want Brodeur. Not only did he play for the killer of joy, in the image of Bergevin's vision, in the Devils.. but he also consults for the Blues, another team that can't get out of its own way to score.

    People want a change for the sake of change and hiring a guy like Quintal is the same BS we have done year after year. I think we need to target guys who know what it takes to win and have strong character who can handle the pressure from media/fans. If we are going to hire Quintal as our next president, I rather keep Molson instead... for as bad as it sounds.

    Robinson is my pick. Perfect President type to step in only when he has to.
