Former forward Martin St-Louis hung up his skates after the 2014-2015 season. In fact, it was on July 1, 2015 that Jeff Gorton was named general manager of the New York Rangers.

Despite his retirement as a player, the Quebecer knows Gorton well as they have been rubbing shoulders in the "Blueshirts" entourage. St-Louis had nothing but good things to say about the Canadiens' new Vice-President of Hockey OperatIons.
"He's a very good person, very honest and very calculated. He doesn't put a lot of emotion into his decisions. I was very impressed when I met him," he said during an appearance on TVA Sports' JiC show.
After a brilliant career of 1134 games in the NHL, the Laval native is taking full advantage of his retirement to spend time with his children. However, he does not hide the fact that he is interested in several teams in the Bettman circuit.
"I always get calls, but I'm very busy with my kids. I want to help them, that's time I'll never get back."
St-Louis certainly has plenty of experience, having scored 1,033 points with the Lightning and Rangers. However, he doesn't want to rush things until he finds a job in the NHL.
"That said, I see myself coming back to professional hockey, but when the time and opportunity is right for me. I'm not someone who runs after the next available position."
Several Quebecers, such as Mathieu Darche, Daniel Briere and Patrick Roy are in the discussion for the GM position in Montreal. St-Louis seems to be flying under the radar, but do you think he's a candidate to consider for the job?
