Oooooo... tasty stuff.
Especially this one:
The prevailing sentiment is that the Canadiens have turned an important corner in their rebuilding with the hiring of Marc Bergevin as general manager to replace Pierre Gauthier. The Gauthier era was confounding, to say the least. What was your take on it?
(Almost 15 minutes of Gill’s reply was off the record. What follows was on the record.)
My thoughts going into last season:
Montreal is the one team that I speculated would do much worse
this past year then most others. In fact, I downgraded Price on most of my goalie lists simply because of the Montreal system in front of him (and not so much as a reflection of Price's own skills).
I've also speculated that Hal Gill probably didn't really enjoy playing with PK.
Gill is a professional and the "on-the-record" comments about PK will be very... uh... PC.
But when a guy says "P.K. is P.K. You don’t fix him."... well, you might as well say "This kid can't be coached". And that is not good.
