MONTREAL — It was a seismic shift happening right under Marc Bergevin’s feet, and under his nose too. He knew the end of his tenure with the Montreal Canadiens was nearing. He understood that, in failing to secure a contract extension prior to the start of the season, his days as general manager were likely numbered, and he had come to terms with that reality as he watched the team that got to last summer’s Stanley Cup Final flounder towards the worst start in its 111-year history. But Bergevin didn’t expect the cracks to form as quickly as they did on Saturday, and on Sunday he — along with assistant general manager Trevor Timmins and executive VP of public affairs and communications Paul Wilson — was pushed through them.

Last June, I wrote an article that pondered the idea of the Canadiens extending Marc Bergevin’s contract. The Habs were in the midst of a magical playoff run, the best since they won the cup in 1993. So, it only made sense that the man responsible for building that team gets rewarded, right? I suggested they wait and see how the last year of that contract goes before they decide. It turns out they didn’t have to wait that long. Now, I bring this up, not to gloat, but to discuss why Bergevin ultimately failed in Montreal and why Jeff Gorton and the new regime should be different. Before we discuss the new staff, which still needs to be filled out, let’s examine the tenures of Marc Bergevin and Trevor Timmins, who were both let go by the organization. Neither one of them can be looked at quite simply as a good or bad General Manager and Assistant General Manager. They both had som

Photo by Vitor Munhoz/NHLI via Getty ImagesA disastrous start and problematic off-season have led to the Canadiens firing their general manager. After an improbable run to the Stanley Cup Final over the summer, an extremely eventful off-season, and a slow start to the 2021-22 season, the Montreal Canadiens have decided to relieve Marc Bergevin from his role as General Manager, as well as Trevor Timmins who served as assistant general manager while leading the draft duties for the team. Bergevin mentioned in the preseason that he would see out the final year of his contract, however the Canadiens in the midst of one of their worst starts ever, decided it was time to make a chang
