I know Martin had a ton of talent, but he was able to bring it all together to form a very good team with a very good system. Who knows how far they could have gone with a legit goalie.
There's more to Martin's failure in Ottawa besides the goalie. Granted, Lalime was a sieve, however the Sens' problems were much deeper than that. They just did not want it as much as the 'Leafs or their other opponents did. In the playoffs, it is not all about skill. It is just as much about heart and determination. And the 'Sens, for all of their great skill, lacked those 2 ingredients in every playoff that they have been in under Martin. Perhaps that is my biggest problem with him.
As for Q, why is he not a good choice for this group? He has worked with plenty of youth. In his 6 years with the Blues, they have brought up and molded quite a team.
