It's a big news that we learned this morning about Jeff Gorton and a possible departure from the Canadiens.

Indeed, the current Vice President of Hockey Operations was on the radar of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the vacant general manager position.
However, Geoff Molson reportedly refused to allow him to speak with the team. It's quite rare to see that.

Obviously, Molson didn't refuse out of malice; he did it because it also served Gorton's interests and because the Canadiens have no intention of letting him go.
Jeff Gorton is the architect of the Rangers, who are the first team to qualify for the semifinals. Since his arrival with the Canadiens, he has been at the heart of very important decisions.
Hiring Kent Hughes and Martin St-Louis, as well as some significant acquisitions like Kirby Dach and draft picks. He contributes to the entire rebuilding process, and his expertise is invaluable.
Geoff Molson made the right decision not to allow the Jackets to speak with him. He likes the direction his team is heading in and wants it to be led by these two men.
As owner and President of Hockey Operations, Molson made the call, and it was the right thing to do for the future of the club.
