Even Jean Béliveau and Guy Lafleur saw Marc Bergevin disrespect them.

The Montreal Canadiens changed direction a little over two years ago. Jeff Gorton, who is now the DG des Blue Jackets The vice president of the Canadian and Kent Hughes, executive director of flannel, took Marc Bergevin’s place.

Obviously, many changes have been made along with this breath of fresh air. The rebuilding of the club is clearly the best example of all.

But there are also shadow aspects that have changed. From the lot? The management of former Canadians.

I say in the shadows, but you know as well as I do that former Canadians no longer receive the same treatment since Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes were in office.

Serge Savard has said it enough times for us to know…

But this morning, On the airwaves of BPM Sports, Gilbert Delorme provided additional information on the topic.. The radio host, former member of Flanelle, spoke of the treatment reserved for Jean Béliveau and Guy Lafleur.

And let’s just say that even for two of the greatest in franchise history, it wasn’t graceful.

When Jean Béliveau arrived at Canadiens games, he would pass by the Canadiens locker room to go to the Alumni lounge. And that visibly upset the former CEO.

Bergevin therefore asked a security officer to warn Mr. Béliveau that he should change course. It must have tempted him to pass the message on to Jean Béliveau, you know?

You will tell M. Béliveau that I don’t want him to come back here again. It bothers the players. – Marc Bergevin to a Bell Center security man, as reported by Gilbert Delorme

I am not going to add more since you can form your own opinion on the subject. Here we are all aware of the importance of Jean Béliveau in Montreal.

Suffice it to say that Mr. Béliveau died in 2014. He had not been CEO of Bergevin for long… and clearly, he had already become comfortable in his management position.

But that is not all. He also asked Guy Lafleur (in fact, someone asked him) to park somewhere other than the players’ parking lot. And according to Gilbert Delorme, it’s not because he lacks space.

They are not anecdotes that make Bergevin look good, let’s say.
