And now another question arises: will the former goaltender, often mentioned in rumors, take over the position of general manager under the direction of the president of hockey operations?
“No, nothing has changed in the last days,” he said Journal Sunday’s agent for former goalkeeper Neil Glasberg.
On Thursday, when our colleague Kevin Dubey contacted him to find out if any of the National League formations, including the Glasberg Canadian, had called to inquire about his client, he replied, “It is quiet right now.” “In my opinion, Patrick should be the candidate [au poste de directeur général], The agent added Sunday. But it’s not for me to decide, it’s for them. “
When asked if Roy was interested in working under the vice president of hockey operations, Glasberg escaped: “That’s a good question. But I will not answer you. ”
“Not only Montreal”
Glasberg and Roy spoke on the phone on Saturday night, sparking rumors of the removal of Mark Bergwin and the appointment of Jeff Gorton as vice president.
“Is that interesting to him?” I do not know. On Saturday, we thought it was strange what was going on, but nothing had been decided yet. “
Earlier last week, former Colorado Avalanche coach Glasberg said he was ready to listen to Canadians, but it was not “Montreal or anything”.
He also mentioned that his client is very happy with his current role as head coach and general manager of Rimportes de Quebec in QMJHL.
Disappointment to Rutherford
On Sunday, Glasberg was shocked to find that Gorton had less experience than Jim Rutherford, one of his clients. In particular, the Canadian did not contact the former general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
“I’m questioning Jeff Gorton’s appointment,” Glasberg said. He is not someone with long experience. Someone like Jim, whom I represent, has 15 or 16 years of experience as a general manager. He won the Stanley Cups when Mark Bergwin was in office. “
