Marc Bergevin clearly doesn't seem like a good advisor to Los Angeles Kings General Manager Rob Blake.

The former Canadiens GM is the senior advisor to Blake, according to the organizational chart of the California-based franchise.
Many agree that one of the worst contracts awarded during the opening of free agency was Joel Edmundson's.
The defenseman signed a 4-year contract (!!!) worth 15.4 million dollars.
Edmundson provided valuable services to the Canadiens, nothing against him. But the Tricolore traded him early last season because he had frequent back problems.
The veteran is limited to playing on the third pair and it's expensive to get the puck out of the zone... The contract is awful, let's just say it.
Marc Bergevin was very fond of Edmundson. Let's bet he convinced Rob Blake to offer him so much money to ensure he signed with the Kings.
After the two trades involving Pierre-Luc Dubois, the former Canadiens GM doesn't seem to be a good advisor for Blake, who isn't very good in his role either.
"This is such a Marc Bergevin signing, it's not even funny! When you hire Bergevin, you get Marc Bergevin decisions, which are bad signings! The Kings are paying a specialist in double-escapes to play on their third pair more than the Leafs will pay Oliver Ekman-Larsson. It's horrible!"

- Adam Wylde on the Toronto digital network SDPN

Why didn't Bergevin get another opportunity to be a GM in the NHL? Asking the question probably answers it...
