With Martin coaching he'll have a short leash. One or two mistakes he'll be sitting in the rafters like P.K. Subban.
Martin is terrible when it comes to young players he would have benched Subban even longer last year if it wasn't for Jean Beliveau and Serge Savard sticking up for Subban saying he has to play to learn.
That's also why he doesn't want to waste space with an enforcer on the team. Martin is more concerned about HIS wins and losses. Martin doesn't give a flying wazoo if his players get pummelled like what happened in the Beatdown in Beantown this year. His actions spoke for him. Martin didn't respond the next game. Players Coach ...No way.
Somebody like Conboy would certainly help but he has to be given a chance like Lars Eller. Eller was given ice time and didn't deserve it most nights but he did improve. Conboy needs to be given that chance too but it's hard to say he will get because he wasn't acquired in the Halak trade. That's another topic. Did we get enough for Halak?
