I am starting to think that Martin will destroy all players in our system.
BTW, he did choose most of the players in the team: Cammy, Gionta, Gomez, Spacek, Mara, etc.
This team is a creation of Gainey and Martin.
Anyone pretend that Martin was not involved in all trades/choices that happened since he was hired is totally wrong.
Sergei kostisyn - andrei kostisyn - max paciorrety (althought useless... he improved quite a lot this year imho) - Ryan Obyrne and poulliot ... excluding pacioretty, they are now a vital part of our core.
the way he handled kostisyns is great, let the numbers behind for a second ... he made them better hockey minds and I give him credit for the way he dealt with both of em from day 1. showing confidence in Obyrne instead of sending him down after every mistake was also the right approach imo ...
gave dago a chance , and other youngsters too ... trusting hamilton's guy boucher recommandation and allowing players in hamilton to believe in their chances to be called up if they play well ...
I<m just saying, jacques is great with young players... doesnt mean I like him as a coach ...
