Lapierre downfall in Montreal started as soon as Jacque Martin became coach.It was crystal clear Lapierre was not one of his favorite , far from it.He basically lost his job to Tom Pyatt ( which is completely laughable ).Under Carbonneau Lapierre was very solid and he was always solid in the playoff regardless of situations (coach , role).He was a quebecois and for a montreal canadiens quebecois the off-ice issues were pretty low if they even ever existed.

Of course a team always can correct a mistake like losing a good player for basically nothing , but it's frustrating none-the-less as Lapierre was a fan favorite like it or not and you don't dump playoff warrors for players like Tommy Pyatt.

Anyway , just another reason out of the millions I have to hate Jacque Martin since the day he entered the NHL.Never would've I thought he was going to be our coach one day.Sad era.
