With the exception of Pat Burns, no coach has lasted longer than 3 seasons since 1979

So i was looking over some stats, and other than pat burns most the longest a coach has lasted in montreal has been 3 years (numbers are below). I just thought it was interesting on its own, but then i thought about JM.

Do you guys think the organization might do anything to Martin if we dont make it past the first round? or will he he the one to break the 3 year curse?

Personally i dont like martin much, but the man really knows how to coach this team in the playoffs.

I think his last 2 seasons, well post seasons have been successful. Yes we got knocked out in the 1st round, up against any other team, i think we would have made it past the 1st round and possible second again but it was just Bostons year.
