According to a reliable source, Geoff Molson has total confidence in his GM Marc Bergevin to put the team back on track. #tvasports— Renaud Lavoie (@renlavoietva) February 25, 2018
This news comes two days before the National Hockey League trade deadline on Monday afternoon. Bergevin's job is reportedly safe, regardless of how deadline day goes for the Canadiens.
Centre Tomas Plekanec was a healthy scratch for the Canadiens ahead of their clash against the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday. Forwards Max Pacioretty, Andrew Shaw, and Alex Galchenyuk have also been subject to trade rumours in the last few days.
Bergevin is under contract with the Canadiens until 2022, after having his contract extended in 2015.
This is the second season in three years that the Habs will miss the playoffs.
