Now The Hard Work Starts For Bergevin

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

Geoff Molson said he’s not an impatient owner.

That could be a good thing because Marc Bergevin, who has been tasked with re-establishing a winning culture with the Montreal Canadiens, said Wednesday that he can’t put a timetable on how long it will take to rebound from what may have been the most embarrassing season in the team’s storied history.

The good news is that Bergevin, who was introduced Wednesday as the team’s new general manager, believes that there is the nucleus of a good team and that his job is more a question of retooling than rebuilding.

Bergevin is facing some serious challenges as he settles into a new role, but he appears prepared to take them on in a thoughtful, methodical manner.

The Canadiens need a new head coach, there are serious concerns about the team’s pro scouts, the Canadiens have the new-found luxury of a high draft pick and there are decisions to be made regarding a dozen restricted and unrestricted free agents.
