Pierre Gauthier, Not Randy Cunneyworth, to Blame for Most of Montreal’s Troubles

Montreal Canadiens interim head coach Randy Cunneyworth is at the center of controvery surrounding the plunge the Habs have taken, with the Canadiens' losing streak now reaching five games. Many in Habs Nation point the finger at Cunneyworth for his inability to speak French as the root of the problem, but Jack Edwards does not agree. 

French or English, it doesn't matter. The numbers don't add up, and with the recent acquisition of an expensive Tomas Kaberle adding to the already pricey Scott Gomez and Andrei Markov, both of whom are injured, the trio accounts for 27 percent of the Canadiens' salary cap. It all leaves general manager Pierre Gauthier with a no-way-out situation. 

Jack Edwards says that no language barrier could have caused Gauthier's accounting errors.
