We are very happy that Bob Gainey has extended his association with the Montreal Canadiens leading to the franchise’s Centennial Year in 2009-10,” said team president Pierre Boivin. “Bob has put together a very strong hockey management team, and his leadership is a source of inspiration for our fans and all members of the Canadiens’ organization
What can you say? I think every fan will be happy with this news. Gainey’s changed the team around completely since taking over and even stepped behind the bench himself.
In a few years time this may be looked back upon as a move that changed the course of the Canadiens and returned them to the top of the NHL.
