There are just about 24 hours until the NHL trade deadline and the tension is steadily building. Not that there have been a ton of moves.
But the rumours and innuendo are swirling fast and furious.
Speaking of rumours, TSN 990's Tony Marinaro dropped a bombshell yesterday, saying that Pierre Gauthier is about to be fired. Moreover, he went on to say that Geoff Molson has taken over as GM until they can find a replacement in the off-season.
Molson was quick to take to Twitter to deny the story. But, love him or hate him, Marinaro has a tendency to be connected to the Habs and often gets hidden stories.
We'll see how this one plays out but, would it surprise anyone else if it ended up being true?
