A very important fact has just been revealed regarding the Habs' hiring process

The big news of the day on Monday is undoubtedly the hiring of Émilie Castonguay with the Vancouver Canucks as assistant GM.

However, following her hiring with the Canucks, she confirmed that she had never been approached by the Canadiens in the most recent hiring process for the new GM.

It's quite surprising, considering that Geoff Molson wanted more women in his organization and that she was highly qualified for the position in question.

In fact, the most recent acquisition of the Canucks was, in a sense, destined to end up on the British Columbia side. Her sister, who died tragically in 2008, told her one day that she would lead the Canucks.

Now that she will be the GM's "right-hand woman" in Vancouver, she is very close to that goal. We wish her the best of luck in her new role. It's too bad for the Habs who missed a great opportunity!
