Martin to stay

Jacques Martin told the South Florida media Tuesday afternoon he would return to the Florida Panthers as its general manager.

Martin spoke publically for the first time since owner Alan Cohen revealed that Martin would not be serving as Panthers coach in 2008-09. Martin had been the Panthers' coach the past three seasons and had served as both general manager and coach for the past two.

''My intentions are to remain as general manager of the Panthers,'' he said. ``It's important to let you know that today. I'm excited to continue my work with the organization.''

As Cohen said before, Martin will be selecting his successor as coach.

The Panthers ended their season April 5 with a 3-1 loss at Washington.
Thanks for the great work George!

Future now!
