As Canadiens Flounder On The Ice, Front Office Denies Reports Of Internal Unrest
Published January 17, 2012
FALLEN ON HARD TIMES: In a special to the Montreal GAZETTE, Jack Todd writes, "Someone has to take a clear-eyed look at this team and develop a long-range plan based on the assets the Canadiens really have, not on an overly optimistic view of the talent here and in the system. Show me the long-term thinking that is going to put the once-mighty Canadiens back on a par with Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago, Vancouver and Boston as a consistent championship threat." The Canadiens are a team "desperately in need of a long-term overhaul, a clear vision of the future, even a willingness to bottom out now in order to come back stronger than ever." Todd writes, "Instead, we have a comedy act -- and a team president, Geoff Molson, who appears reluctant to do something about it. How the once-mighty Canadiens have fallen" (Montreal GAZETTE, 1/17).
