                 This afternoon in Montreal, Canadiens owner Geoff Molson announced that he fired GM Pierre Gauthier. The Habs are last in the East with a record of  29-34-14. "It goes without saying that we're all very disappointed in our performance this season," said Molson."Everyone in this organization, including our players, expected better. Our fans care deeply about our team and want nothing more than a winning team, one that follows in the tradition of our storied past. This season did not deliver on those expectations. Our fans can trust that ownership will accept nothing less than a winning culture in this organization.We need to remember that our fans want us to win, period," Molson told reporters at the team's practice facility in Brossard. "Our organizational culture is to support and adopt this passion for victory. Nothing else matters."

           Molson and Denis Savard will be the Habs interim Gms until they decide who will take over. Leading candidates for the next GM could be: Pierre Meguire and Patrick Roy.
