Although i agree that Martin has a short leash with younger players, i don't think he's entirely the problem.
White, Eller, Weber have proven nothing so far. And Max Pax pretty much became the player he is because he found his game in Hamilton. DD is a little fighter and got everything on his own everywhere he went. As for PK well he's a uber talented guy who almost was NHL ready the moment he joined the Habs, he's a rare talent. Sure Martin did well with him but that's the thing: Martin can coach guys that are NHL ready, you gave them a little tough love and send them on the ice but he can't groom guys into becoming hockey players by fixing their problems.
