The Montreal Canadiens have apparently requested permission to speak to Jeff Gorton about a role within the organization, but this role is not considered to be the GM role according to Elliotte Friedman.

The news then broke that Assistant GM Scott Melanby was resigning from his role with the team.

All of this turmoil surrounding the Habs following their 5-15-2 start. It has also been rumoured that Montreal has been interviewing candidates to replace their current GM Marc Bergevin, but according to Chris Johnston the team will only pursue a French General Manager.

It will be interesting to see if the Canadiens can find a candidate who fits their needs for both experience and language requirements. If this is going to be a prerequisite to the job in the future the Canadiens must do a better job of developing French speaking talent.
