Taking Ownership Of The Problems In Montreal

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

As bad as all of this is, the Canadiens are just four points out of the playoffs. This season is not lost, unless the organization believes it’s time to start over. But the patient is not going to survive unless someone steps up with a defibrillator.

That person is not Pierre Gauthier. It’s not Cunneyworth. And it’s not Brian Gionta, or any other player—at least, not at first.

It’s Geoff Molson. As far as I see it, he has two options.

Number one:

When the Canadiens reconvene after Christmas, Molson’s got to be there. I’m not a big believer in owners entering the dressing room, but this is a special occasion.

He should admit that the organization’s done a terrible job this season of putting the players in the best environment to succeed. The two game-day coaching changes, the language controversy—terrible. There’s enough craziness in Montreal without that stuff. You cannot demand others’ accountability without showing yours.
