What makes you think that if Martin were fired today and replaced by Muller he wouldn't be just as hated a year from now?
And look at that list of coaches that we have had.
Vigneault was young and should have been given more of a chance here in Montreal. He is the only exception.
Therrien was horrible and can only find a job as a scout now.
Julien is basically one dimensional and is riding Thomas this year. They cannot score on power plays despite having a team with enough talent and size to be quite effective like Detroit. The Bruins will flame out soon enough this year before they win a Cup.
Carbo had some skills but sucked big time in fitting personnel into roles and situations which would enable them to excel (Streit as a forward????????). He was also a poor communicator and alienated almost the entire team. He is now coaching in Juniors.
Gainey did exactly what Carbo did........remember Laraque on the PP?? Horrible with his attempt of having a "system?" Would have been better in the role of a GM instead of a coach. Ooops, wait a minute. Scratch that. Would have been better in the role of an ambassador for the sport of Hockey in Canada as he was an amiable guy.
Martin's history and track record speaks for itself. He has never been able to win in the playoffs. I know people like to throw out the fact that we had injuries this year but his Senator teams were loaded with healthy and talented players and Martin led them to how many Cups? Zero, the same number he will earn here in Montreal.
It has been a long time since we had a smart and dynamic coach that understood how to win a championship. The same holds true with regard to GM's.
We have Gauthier. This offseason will show us what we can expect in the future from him. We all know what we need. Can he get it for us?
But off topic, at least my favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers, finally won a Super Bowl.
I guess miracles can happen anywhere, Montreal included.
