If we do stumble, and miss the Playoffs, one of him or PG will b on the way out, if not both.
It won't be PG. He's made useful changes to the Habs and they've been in the playoffs (and played well once in) two years in a row. He resisted the hysteria around Halak; signed the elusive Yemelin (whose name some people thought was really Yeti), traded up to draft Tinordi; brought in Cole and a backup for Price; retained the useful Darche; re-signed Markov, Plekanec, Kostitsyn, Pacioretty, and Gill; and plugged the holes resulting from the massive injuries to Dmen.
If the Habs don't make the playoffs the judgment on JM will be influenced by the injury situation; if it's light the Habs should get in, although there'll be stiffer competition from the Devils and Leafs this time.
