The number one job of a head coach is to get his players to achieve over and above what their current talent level is right now. It's called motivation.
Boucher has demonstrated that he is willing to treat each individual player as an individual to improve their performance that will help the team.
Martin has demonstrated that he believes in a one size fits all approach to the team concept.
Boucher has demonstrated that he adjusts his systems based upon the personnel he has on his team.
Martin has demonstrated that he will use the same system over and over again regardless of the type of players he has suited up.
Boucher coaches with genuine emotion which can be reflected in his player's state of mind during the game.
Martin coaches with a flat emotionless approach which is often times reflected by his players on the ice.
Intangibles. Some coaches have what it takes to succeed and win the Championship. Some coaches do not have a grasp of that concept, and while being good coaches with regard to systems, will not be able to do what it takes to inspire his team to greatness.
Not everyone can be a champion. Boucher is eons ahead of Martin with regard to intangibles and will win a Cup while Martin will never reach that goal.
Boucher for now has demonstrated that all is theory look good in the Q or AHL, but he hasn't even proved anything at the NHL Level. How will Millionaires react to his approach, might be great for a year or two, but then they'll probably grow tired of it, and he will be let go like other coaches. or He could have a great career at the bar of the TBL or any NHL club. who knows. for now he still has to prove everything
Like I said before Daigle showed a lot more talent and good stuff then Nilan, but one had a great career as an NHLer the other as a party planner...
