LOOKING AHEAD: Savard said Thursday on CKGM-AM that the next GM "will need to speak French." Savard said, "In this province, to have a position like general manager or head coach of the Canadiens, it doesn’t have to be a guy from Quebec, it doesn’t have to be a French-Canadian, but the guy has to be able to communicate to the people in French. If my guy doesn’t speak English, he’s not qualified either, because he has to communicate with the people in English as well” (MONTREALGAZETTE.com, 3/29). In Toronto, Bruce Garrioch cites NHL execs and agents as saying that the list of candidates for the GM job includes Hockey HOFer Patrick Roy, NBC analyst Pierre McGuire, Lightning Assistant GM Julien Brisebois, Blackhawks Assistant GM Marc Bergevin, CAA's Pat Brisson, Senators Dir of Player Personnel Pierre Dorion and Maple Leafs Assistant GM Claude Loiselle (TORONTO SUN, 3/30).
