He also met with Michel Therrien in private, after or before the players.

My first reaction is pure cynicism. Why did Marc Bergevin allow a reporter to witness a leaders-only meeting that didn’t include the coach? Bergevin knows that type of scenario is bound to create endless rumours among Habs fans and media.

Let’s look past the skepticism and give this report the benefit of the doubt. If Bergevin did indeed hold this meeting, I’m not convinced it was for any nefarious reasons.
