In a press conference today, Geoff Molson announced the relieving of Pierre Gauthier's and Bob Gainey's duties as the front office of the Montreal Canadiens. We all new that Gauthier's reign at the helm of the Canadiens was all but over despite Molson waiting until now to unveil the news. He gave Pierre Gauthier to go out with a nice swan song but, that was not achieved.
Now that Gauthier is gone, the Canadiens clearly face a rebuild from top to bottom. Despite Molson, in his boring press conference, reiterating his belief and his commitment to his core players, this organization can't help but to rebuild.

This is a golden opportunity to rebuild and start the recovering of this historic hockey brand. Molson and his minions face an uphill battle that, if they don't produce quick results, they'll be a great cause of distress in Montreal.
Here are seven things that, in my opinion, he needs to do in order to recover this franchise.
