The Montreal Canadiens are in pretty bad shape at the moment.
Their star defenseman has been returned to Montreal because of a foot injury, and the team has lost four of their last five games. Are they going to make the playoffs? Or should they opt for a rebuild?
It is extremely hard to tell. But it looks like Marc Bergevin and Geoff Molson have a plan, and they seem to know exactly where they're going.
La Presse's Philippe Cantin mentioned in his latest article that Molson said he believes his general manager is doing a good job, and that he trusts him:
"Geoff Molson believes fans shouldn't be worried. Because Marc Bergevin has a plan. That is what the Habs' president told 98.5FM's Ron Fournier, last Wednesday. But what is this "plan" about? We have no idea.
All Mr. Molson said is that he and Bergevin know the plan. He added that "if we are able to pull it off, we believe we are going to be in a better position."
Is that supposed to be reassuring? Both the fans and journalists would like to have concrete evidence of this so-called plan. And as Cantin added, let's just hope it wont look like last summer's "plan":
"Because if this "plan" looks like last summer's, when the Canadiens lost Alexander Radulov and Andrei Markov, and thought Mark Streit and Ales Hemsky could really have an impact on this team, the future isn't bright in Montreal."
What do you think about Geoff Molson's declaration?
