Patrick Roy is not the ideal candidate for the GM position in Montreal according to a journalist

He also mentioned a few reasons to support his comments.

In this catastrophic beginning of the season in Montreal, the contractual situation of Marc Bergevin takes a lot of space around the team.

Many analysts believe that this precarious situation is one of the factors that explain the Habs' four wins in 19 games.

It seems increasingly clear that Geoff Molson is currently looking for a new general manager to replace Bergevin.

While several candidates have been mentioned in recent days, the one who seems to be the most popular with fans is former CH goalie Patrick Roy.

Currently at the helm of the Quebec Remparts, Roy certainly has a lot of experience at the junior level, but he has never been a GM in the NHL.

While on the TSN690 podcast, journalist Adam Proteau discussed Roy's candidacy with host Matthew Ross.

According to the journalist, the former number 33 should not be at the helm of the Tricolore. Known as having an impulsive character, there could be friction between Roy and Molson.

Remember when the former goalie was the coach of the Colorado Avalanche and finally left his position suddenly... The Hall of Famer wanted to hold the positions of coach as well as general manager, something that has not been practiced for several years in the Bettman circuit.

With the upcoming draft in Montreal, it will be interesting to see when Molson finally makes his decision. He can't hide from the media forever.

If a new GM isn't chosen until the end of the campaign, he won't have much time to do his homework for the draft and the free agent market.

With these points on the table, do you still believe that Patrick Roy should be the next GM of the Montreal Canadiens?
