Bob Gainey has been canned, and Serge Savard is in as an adviser in the search for a new GM. Serge, my number is 604-555-4587.
We couldn’t have Bob anymore. Not with the lingering stench of the Scott Gomez deal continuing to assault our nostrils and destroy our brain cells. What was he thinking when he did that deal with Glen Sather?
Good old Serge Savard. I met Serge once, in the parking lot across the street from the Montreal Forum, after a game in the late seventies. We were going to our car and he was going to his. “Where ya headed now, Serge?” I asked. “Philly” he answered. And that was that.
I feel like we became almost brothers after that encounter.
