Renaud Lavoie at RDS says despite reports that the Canadiens will be looking for a French speaking GM to replace the recently fired Pierre Gauthier, that Rangers assistant GM Jeff Gorton could be on the list of potential candidates.
Lavoie adds that it was Gorton who insisted that Ryan McDonagh be part of the Scott Gomez trade.
Before he came to the Rangers, Gorton was the interim GM of the Bruins.
…with how well Ranger transactions (trades, signings & draft) have been going recently I’d hate to see Gorton, who has had a positive impact on all of them, move on.
…big time long shot he gets the job though.
