So many arguments on Habs twitter today, here's my take:
Bergevin can both have had a great year of moves that make the team better short and long term, while also being a failure as a GM overall. This is year 7 as GM and the team is no better than when he took over.
As mentionned on 98.5, the apparent asking price for Duchene & Dzingel was a 1st, Romanov and Kotkaniemi 😂😂😂 trust me, some people will blame Bergevin for not making big moves at the deadline, when at the end of the day I’d rather be where we are today with our future ahead
Habs are out. Fire Julien, lynch Bergevin, trade Price, deport Kotkaniemi, euthanize Drouin.
exist doesnt really change the fact that the Canadiens need goal scoring and are way too reliant on an aging goal tender. The Paccioretty trade was great, but Bergevin has done little else to really push the needle forward. The Habs really just look like a middling team.
I dont really sow how it's a great thing that a team who we thought would be a bottom 5 team played admirably and just missed the playoffs. Like, yeah the Habs had a good year but this really isnt total vindication for Bergevin. Just because teams like Buffalo, Edmonton, and Ott
The early years of Bergevin's tenure, their prospects were probably more B's and C's. Right now, they have A's and B's. Galchenyuk was their only A in my mind, and now Suzuki-KK are A's, Romanov-Poehling probably A-minuses, Brook-Ylonen-Ikonen are B's... and I'm just starting.
