At some point, these experts need to chuck their egos out the door and admit that they underestimate this hockey club instead of looking for weak crutches time after time.
a lot of this teams success has to do with, brace yourselves, Jacques Martin. Say what you want, but hes a damn good coach and he is the reason why the habs are still in contention, injury after injury after injury. Hes the first experienced coach we ve had in like what 20 years?? and it shows.
