Maxim Lapierre was really pissed off on live television

With all the names floating around for the Montreal Canadiens' general manager title, we don't know where to turn.

Who will be Marc Bergevin's replacement?

It's a question that particularly irritates Maxim Lapierre so much, that he dropped a big swear word on live television.

"I'm so tired of it," he said on Monday's "The Show" segment on JiC. "It's going to take four years to find a general manager in Montreal, because there are so many candidates, it doesn't make sense. They talk about the committee to choose the general manager, but now I'm hearing all the names."

The former Habs number 40 even used his sarcasm to explain the situation.

"Anyone who can write the word 'hockey' on paper could be a general manager of the Montreal Canadiens."

Lapierre recalled that the title of general manager of the Montreal Canadiens is no small beer, it's one of the toughest titles in the sports world.

"It's one of the most pressure-filled roles in sports along with [the GM] of the New York Yankees."

"It takes years and years of work. You have to work your way up the ladder. We're talking about people who aren't even close to the National League yet."

"At one point, the general manager of the St-Lazare Mustangs in peewee BB sent in his application!"

Obviously, the TVA Sports analyst is really fed up and he let the whole hockey world know it. Will he be able to make himself heard?
