Habs GM replacement.

There's lots of talk about about who will be the replacement for Habs GM Pierre Gauthier.He has been fired by the Montreal Canadiens

There "celebrity" choice is P. Roy, but I personally don't think this is a great idea because when he was a coach in the QMJHL he got in a fight with his son giving the crowd a two middle finger salute.

However, the "executive" choice right now is Francois Giguere. Giguere was the GM and Executive Vice President of the Colorado Avalanche from 2006 - 2009.

We will have updates for you when we get them.

7:30 New candidates. Julien Brisebois is a new candidate that has emerged for the job. He is the current Assistant GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning. If the team wants him, they will need to talk to the Lightning for permission to pursue him.
Another candidate is Vincent Damphousse. He does not have any experience working in the front office but he has lots of experience working with players. Currently, Geoff Molson is more interested in hiring Damphousse over Brisebois.

7:57 Long shot would be Guy Lafleur. Not sure if he has any front office experience ,but he would please the fan base with his status.
Like always Pierre McGuire is an option. Not too sure he would want to go to MTL though...
