    I don't think he would be as retarded as MB , and probably could assemble a better regime .

    Its like our coach I would never if hired another retread but a younger Groulx or Ducharme or given Gallant the gig .

    Everyone loved MB at the beginning.

    David Poile’s been a GM going on 40-yrs, won didly squat while willingly seeking employment in non traditional hockey markets for as he himself put it “I prefer non traditional markets as the media scrutiny is not an issue in allowing me to do my job”.

    Until the Leafs actually win, Shanny-Plan is just a nice story circa 2017.
    We have to look at this in terms of regime . In 6 years under MB he drove the team to the ground and leaving his successor with a hot mess.

    TB and Poile drafted and developed better and have more depth to work with . They havent made the numerous blunders Nero did and this has nothing to with hometown discounts or less scrutinized markets .

    We have to work harder and smarter and we failed miserably on all fronts to improve this team ....NO EXCUSE TO LEAVE IT THIS BAD 6 YEARS LATER .

    Look at Winnipeg , Chevy has won nothing in about the same time frame but has slowly developed an elite top 6 and a solid base to work with .

    McGuire has a huge ego though, much like Bergevin, doesn't make for the best sort of GM.

    I agree with Sal, Fenton is a good candidate.

    McGuire would've acquired a first line center in six years, I'm positive.

    As for JB, bean counters like him have a mixed record as pro sports GM's. Howie Roseman would not be highly regarded if Carson Wentz had not fallen into his lap, so to speak.

    I cant take Mcguire seriously ever since he said Markov will miss Komisarek more than Komisarek will miss Markov.

    Add the other preposterous things he’s said over the years.

    The last was when he said he was absolutely convinced Alzner would not sign here, he even said it in a condescending way like its a pipe dream Habs fans.

    Too bad he wasnt right on that one
    Go Habs Go!

    Yep, and Roy’s ego is even greater, if that’s possible.

    More important, he said Alzner was a great addition.

    Agree but while they might hire an Anglo, I can’t see them going with an American. That’s just too deep.

    Does it matter? We traded Subban and Sergachev and still didn't get a first line center. Is there anything on the current roster that you wouldn't give up for one?

    PK was never going to land you the 1C and our clown thought Chevy found us that player .

    That wasn't my point. And I think PK could have gotten us one, before his big contract.

    Did MB missed a 1C at the draft?
