The ideal destination for Mathieu Darche is not Montreal

We're getting closer to mid-January, which means we're getting closer and closer to knowing the identity of the next Habs executive director. Among the favorite candidates to replace Marc Bergevin is former Habs player Mathieu Darche.

Yesterday, we reported to you that the Canadiens would not be the only ones courting Darche's services to fill the position of executive director in their organization. According to Elliotte Friedman, the Anaheim Ducks could also make eyes on Quebecers.

Mathieu Darche could therefore have the choice of his next destination. So what would be the best option for someone who won the Stanley Cup with the Lightning last year?

According to Mathias Brunet, the choice would not be difficult. He must choose Anaheim before Montreal.

The reason is very simple. If Darche wants to have full control, it will be on the side of Anaheim that he will be able to have it. Otherwise, he will have to deal with Jeff Gorton when there are decisions to be made.

Currently, only the CH has formally requested permission from the Tampa Bay Lightning to speak with Darche. That could change quickly if the Ducks want to interview him too!
