Several names are circulating around the Montreal Canadiens at the moment, as the hunt for a general manager officially opened last Friday. After Gorton's imperial presence in front of a pack of Montreal journalists, the battle of the roosters has begun in a more intense way.

The popular names are, of course, Patrick Roy as well as Martin Madden Junior, Mathieu Darche and Daniel Brière. Then, in my book, André Tourigny and Joël Bouchard are a must-see. Yes, they're fresh off the job with the Arizona Coyotes and Anaheim Ducks respectively, but who cares?
The CH hockey men owe it to themselves to contact them, if they don't, it's a failure of lessons. The only possible defeat is when teams refuse to let the CH talk to their pawn.
That being said, the name to add to the hat remains that of Dominic DeBlois, who had a colossal junior career. In his own way, he marked the history of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies from 2002 to 2005 with his leadership. He may not have made it to the pros, but as a player's agent, he made his mark and still does today.
DeBlois is now the CEO of Will Sports Group, an agency that represents some big names: Miro Heiskanen, Thomas Chabot and Tyler Seguin. DeBlois is very articulate, has a good grasp of numbers and is very good at managing the games that go on behind the scenes. Despite this, the 37-year-old has yet to be contacted by the Montreal Canadiens organization.
"I still haven't been contacted by the team. But I have no choice but to admit that what is happening in Montreal attracts my attention. It is certain that I would not refuse an interview with the CH. We're talking about the Montreal Canadiens".
He is open, no surprise there. But if the CH meets all the candidates that come out in the media, they will still be interviewing in 2024. Are you following me?
