Plutarch Posted February 9 Share Posted February 9 These are basically the GMs I have some memory of. I was alive for the last cup win and tail end of Serge Savard but I don't have any memory of it... Rejean Houle: 1995-2000 Andre Savard: 2000-2003 Bob Gainey: 2003-2010 Pierre Gauthier: 2010-2012 Marc Bergevin: 2012-2021 In my mind they go like this... Can't decide on Gainey/Bergevin but then A. Savard, Gauthier, Houle. Thoughts? For some reason A. Savard doesn't have a real place in my memory. Top Two Bergevin - hey got a cup final and a conference final - gifted most his core though by Gainey drafts - failed to ultimately build a real contender - sweeeeeet trades - very less sweet development - very enjoyable media presence after Gauthier and all that shit. For what that's worth. Gainey - it's kinda hard to rate him because of rumors he delegated a lot due to the tragic passing of his daughter. - But anyways trades/signings. The Gomez trade has to be balanced out by the Patches/George's trade. Plus that culture purge to move on from Kovalev/Komi/Higgins/Lats to give Price a better environment and signing Gionta/Gomez/Cammalleri. Led to the Halak run, one of my favourite hockey memories. - drafting... Best of anyone on the list. Sure missed some 1st round picks but strong depth drafting. The Other Guy A. Savard I mean acquiring Gilmour was hilarious to see leaf fans get upset... God Why Did You Happen Gauthier - I hate this man. All the negativity from former players about his time as GM... Spacek, Gill, Cammalleri. Everyone was saying it. - trading up to draft tinordi, the Halak trade and apperent lack of shopping... - also just seemed like a miserable human lol Houle - I think we all know, as much as I have immense distain for Gauthier. Houle was something else. Oh the trades... Roy, Recchi VinnyD, Tucker, ROY.... Missing on like every 1st round choice... Yikes. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
