Serge Savard takes another swipe at Marc Bergevin for one aspect of his reign in Montreal

Yet, Savard himself was part of the selection committee that gave the job to Bergevin. But then again, maybe Bergevin just didn't execute the plan he presented at the time, we'll never know.
What seems to have annoyed Savard the most, and he's definitely not the only one, is Bergevin's treatment of CH alumni. In fact, it's more like not treating them at all, because they were hardly accepted in the team's entourage anymore.
On this subject, Savard sent a new point towards Bergevin, saying that it didn't make sense for anyone except the former GM of the Canadiens.
The Habs are the most historic franchise in the entire NHL. You can't erase that history and you certainly can't try to rewrite it either. We often talk about the torch, which has great meaning to the organization. It's a sign of the team passing from generation to generation.
And under Bergevin, there was a disconnect.
Fortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case with Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes.
