Most colleagues were impressed by Kent Hughes’ answers and the appearance of Jeff Gordon, the real boss of hockey in Montreal. We congratulated CH’s employers for the depth and openness of their responses.
Personally, I learned nothing. Vague, empty sentences made for a quick web click say nothing.
The real questions should be asked of Jeff Molson. Because once the public relations are over, there’s a lot more to know to help fans find their way before Alan Choquette tells a slur to get his attention.
So, could Jeff Molson explain to us what the plan is? And what are the objectives to be achieved by the project? As with all projects, can Jeff Molson tell you what the timeline is for the project? Is it 2026? 2027? Or 2028, and then we’ll enter another five-year phase of the plan, since it’s already been five years since Gordon wrote the initial plan?
Precisely, where should the project lead? Kent Hughes says expectations will be different next season?
Different? Oh yeah? So, can Jeff Molson clarify what the expectations are for next season? Making the playoffs? A ten point increase? Avoid losing streaks?
It’s simple: aside from millions in profits, what are the team’s expectations now?
Then, are the plans and expectations based on people’s standards? Does Jeff Molson think Kent Hughes is better than the other 31 general managers? Still, he’s a rookie who just finished his first full season in the National League. Unless Jeff Gordon makes all the big decisions. In this case, Mr. The question for Molson is even simpler: Is Jeff Gordon the real boss of the Canadiens?
Another question. Martin Saint-Louis was an admirable pastoral animator. But what are the expectations for next season? Guys is having fun the only criteria for judgement? Or are we going to start talking seriously about sports organization and collective commitment?
Will Trevor Timmins’ successors continue to sideline Quebec talent because it will be too difficult to be led by these great thinkers? The elimination of French-speaking Quebecers in the company and especially in the team goes back to Pierre Gauthier and Bob Gainey. According to Doc Timmins, English-speaking Quebecers are less affected.
Is this policy still in effect? What does the program say about this?
The actual rating of the stars?
In the mysterious program, the assessment of the team’s up-and-coming stars is certainly present. Who will be the real goalkeeper in three years? Samuel Montembalt? I congratulate him. But what does the owner think? What did we sell him for salad? What does the plan say?
And on defense? Now Jeff Molson’s plan to endorse Logan Mailloux’s arrival with the Canadiens must be very uncertain. I guess that raises another good question?
Now the captain. Did CH’s thinkers explain the reality of Nick Suzuki to its owner?
He is not yet 24 years old. So he will undoubtedly advance. But in real-life reality, the Canadiens’ leading scorer finished 73rd in National League scoring. with 66 points.
Debringate and Meyer
Two other young forwards finished with 72se and 75e At the counters. Alex DeBrincat and Timo Meyer of the Ottawa Senators were acquired by the New Jersey Devils at the trade deadline.
The problem should be clear to Jeff Molson. Nick Suzuki is the top Canadian with 66 points (and his average hasn’t dipped without Cole Caufield). Chairman. Captain. top top
Alex DeBrincat is behind Tim Stetzle and Brady Tkachuk. As for Timo Meyer, he is behind the Devils’ true leaders, Jack Hughes and Nico Hiskier.
In other words, our 73e The NHL’s best scorer is our best. 72e and 75e The Senators and Devils are tied for third in their league with 66 points.
What is Nick Suzuki’s expected rating at 25?
and taxation, m. Molson?
Besides, I won’t settle for another little piece of wisdom. The Canadian medical workforce consists of specialists. Who will do their assessment? A medical college? Do you think players in Toronto, Philadelphia or Calgary rush to report every illness and every minor injury they suffer for five cents? Everyone is afraid of losing their job. It is the same everywhere.
Finally, Mr. Molson, real question. Canadian develops in a socialist province in a socialist country. This is the case with all Canadian teams except Calgary and Edmonton. But it’s worse in Montreal.
Their opponents are in a capitalist country that supports very soft taxation. Besides California and incidentally, California has two of the worst teams in the NHL.
The real problem is simple. While the Canadiens pay a player US$8 million, he has about four million left in his pocket. A little more depends on the number of days spent in Canada during the season.
When the Lightning offer $8 million to the same player, he is guaranteed to have $5.3 million left over. If you do the math on the 82 million salary cap, the truth is stark. Canadians always miss at least one good player. Five or six million player.
What is Jeff Molson’s plan in a situation that will only be worsened by a deteriorating global economy and the state of Quebec’s dire financial situation? Convince Gary Bettman to take this reality into account? Or try to get some relief at the federal level? With all the lobbies being unleashed?
Thanks for your replies, Mr. Molson.
