Spring cleaning… | Montreal Magazine

There are no other options. The people in power, those who demanded an investigation into the day-to-day management of Hockey Canada, have enough evidence to clean up.

The decision-makers of the organization acted like unscrupulous people, covering up scandalous events, in addition, they took part of the money paid by the parents of young skaters participating in the activities of all tournaments in Canada. London 2018 events.

We’re talking about $10 million in compensation to silence the victims.

These decision makers – among others Chairman Scott Smith, Chairman Tom Rainey and proposed funding Brian Cairo – doubled down on testimonies that irritated the speakers.

With all we can learn in recent weeks, can we leave this organization in the hands of these incompetent people, the people who have denigrated hockey in Canada?

No wonder the sponsors and partners in the day-to-day operations of the organization and the Canadian government initially put all financial contributions on the sidelines.

Ego greater than sports

Who wants to be associated with an organization run by people with a greater psyche than the sport they must serve wisely and professionally, a sport they must above all allow to grow with the greatest respect.

Are there candidates for the position?


Some will appear. Others will be expected.

But we have no room for error. We must restore the image of an organization tainted by scandal.

A heavy mandate awaits those who want to take on this challenge, but one that can serve as a model for other sports. Sports Canada should not escape this purge.

Robidas: an interesting choice

The leaders of the Canadians surprised everyone by assigning Stephane Rubidas a position which Luke Richardson filled with great distinction. An amazing choice, but it shows that the decision makers in the organization are doing their homework. They brief themselves, ask questions, analyze all situations, then evaluate and a decision is made.

Robidas will bring the Canadian a long and successful career experience. He worked hard to reach unexpected heights. Many of those players who have had to defy adversity every day to maintain their position have this ability to connect with young players. They know how to share their experience, and how to help a young person improve.

I once thought Martin St. Louis, perhaps under the recommendations of Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes, would direct his research toward a professional coach, a former National League coach. On the other hand, he would occupy an important position, coach of defenders, and he would also benefit from the advice of a coach who knew the job well. But St. Louis said Rubidas has all the qualities to help the Canadian advance, especially with so many possibilities on the defensive team.

Amazing choice… and thoughtful!

Qadri: The salary cap decides

Joe Sakic would have liked to keep Nazim Qadri in the fold of the Stanley Cup champion, but again, the salary cap does not allow the Colorado Avalanche to absorb the quarterback financially.

Joe Sakic should be thinking about the next few years. He knows that next year, negotiations between the organization and Pat Bryson, Nathan McKinnon’s agent, will get all the attention. He will have to pay a huge amount. Be warned, however, that there are still teams trying to create a financial package to impress Qadri. But exercise takes time.

Currently, Lou Lamoriello, the senior president of the New York Islanders hockey business, is in tough negotiations and the file is progressing. We would be surprised if the midfielder did not accept offers from the islanders.

The decision makers of the organization – we should write instead, the only decision maker in the organization – are responsible.

Since the end of last season, Lamoreello has been very calm, with the exception of course the acquisition of Alexander Romanov. For the rest, the main opponents of the islanders in the greater New York area, the New Jersey Devils and Rangers, were very active.

With the disastrous results of last year, Lamoreello needs to get the islanders back on track quickly. Barry Trotz’s departure has been heavily criticized. What did he do to improve his team in attack?

no thing.
