At the moment, there’s a lot of talk about coaches looking for work, but little about the managers who could fill the only GM position available: the one in Columbus.

With just a few weeks to go before the draft, the Blue Jackets need to find someone they can trust.

And according to journalist Dennis Bernstein on Twitter, Marc Bergevin’s name is currently being bandied about to take over as GM of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

This isn’t the first time Bergevin’s name has been bandied about. When the Blue Jackets fired Jarmo Kekalainen, the possibility of the former Habs GM taking the job was raised.

Jeff Gorton was also considered because of the link between president John Davidson and Gorton, but the Canadiens’ VP clearly has no intention of leaving Montreal.

Speaking of Davidson, I wonder if Bergevin, who was the controlling executive in Montreal, would like to be a GM under a president.

It’s better than not being a GM, but I sincerely wonder if Bergevin, who likes things to work his way, would like to have a hockey operations boss.

If Bergevin were to take over as GM, he’d still have a French-speaking coach, like in Montreal. Speaking of the wolf, Pascal Vincent must be looking forward to finding out more about his future.

You also have to wonder how it would work with Trevor Timmins, who was fired at the same time as Bergevin in 2021.

The two were a great pair and you’d think they’d be happy to work together again. Maybe it’s even Timmins who’s pushing for him to get the Columbus job.

To be continued, in any case.
