Anyone who was dumb enough to take Gomez off the hands of the rangers was asking to be fired.

That was Bob Gainey, not Pierre Gauthier.

If the Kings choke, Lombardass will be looking for a new job.  Don’t know if he speaks french, as apparently it is a greater job requirement than competancy.  Lombardi has neither.

My money is on that jerk, P.roy.  I tolerated the avs, but always despised him.  That was a team deep and talented enough to win the cup with my grandma in net, but douchebag always got the credit.

Well what the hell was the dragging the feet on firing him? he is a joke

I don’t know if he can speak French, but Mike Milbury is available.  @shlo Speak for yourself on Garth, because most Islanders fans disagree with you.

I wonder if TB’s Julien Brisebois will be a candidate for this.  Tough to have your first NHL GM job be in Montreal, though, however bright a candidate you might be . . .

Rosetta Stone will take care of the language barrier , I am speaking for myself….not sure about “most Islanders fans” you are talking about.

he tried to top gainey’s worst deal by getting kaberle, but nothing will ever top the gomez trade.  EVER!!

I think it will be Tampa assistant GM Julien Brisebois.
