- Comment on Savard denies he'll be über-VP
No. I have the utmost respect for Savard but the Canadiens organization does this to themselves time after time. Trot some former Canadiens great out in hopes that their past glory can be replicated. How has that worked out for us? It has been almost two decades since the last Cup. The game has moved on since Savard's time. You think any of the new up-and-comers want to take a GM position that is GM in title only while Savard is making all the "real" calls? This entire organization needs a complete reboot with fresh front-office talent attuned to today's game. No more Hab retreads. Past glory is just that - past. If Montreal is really serious about winning they need to start making some innovative, forward looking decisions about the composition of their managment team - and Savard is about as far from this tact as you can get.
