Also, we can't get hung up on losing Boucher and Muller (I love Kirk-is-work too, but have to admit I have no idea if he could succeed as an NHL head coach - e.g. remember what happened to NJDevils' John MacLean?). Unlike players, coaches will move around for career advancement, and no organization (e.g. Habs) ever stands in the way of a promotion to another org.

We must not lose sight that, like his style or not, JMartin is a proven winner, and these new guys in MTL and HAM will be his soldiers, executing on his plan.
I like the fact that he wins regular season games, but he is not a proven playoff winner as the Sens choked under his command in the SCFinals.
