Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson indicated that Marc Bergevin will remain the team’s general manager after this season, according to Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette.

“We all know it’s a very difficult season for us in all areas,” Molson told RDS. “Marc and I are talking about it all the time. He knows that team performance at all levels is unacceptable and we have a plan to fix it.

“I’m talking about all areas: leadership, development recruitment, players on the team. We need to improve, we must become better. We have not been able to do that this year. We will succeed, I trust Marc to manage this transition, but he is aware that it needs to improve.”

The Habs sit near the NHL’s basement and Bergevin has been criticized for some the moves he’s made as the club’s GM, including the P.K. SubbanShea Weber blockbuster, the Mikhail SergachevJonathan Drouin swap, and Carey Price‘s massive contract extension.
