In an interview with Renaud Lavoie, from TVA Sports, Geoff Molson settled the Jeff Gorton file, on behalf of the Montreal Canadiens.

For some time now, rumors have been sending him as GM elsewhere, notably with the Columbus Blue Jackets, but the big boss has just very clearly settled the matter.

The Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations for the Montreal Canadiens, Jeff Gorton, will stay with the Habs, Geoff Molson assures!

Molson was clear. There is no chance he will let Columbus talk to Gorton, which is obviously great news.

"The chances that I will let the Blue Jackets talk to him are zero." - Geoff Molson

Let's not forget that Gorton was Molson's number one choice from the very beginning. He's his guy, he's the one who chose him, and he's going to keep him.

"I've read the rumors in the newspapers too. The first call I made was to Jeff Gorton," Molson recounted during an exclusive interview with Renaud Lavoie broadcast on TVA Sports.

No one called me. It's a made-up story." - Geoff Molson

The dynamic duo will stay together for a while!
