Martin is not a good handler of his players. He picks a few whipping boys each season and rides them out of town for making mistakes that other players make without reprimand. No way in hell is that conductive to team building as it builds apathy and animosity.

No bias here. Just observations. There is a reason Scotty Bowman won 9 Cups with 3 different teams and Jacques Martin has won none. He was the ultimate motivator of his players and his players respected him. May not have liked him all the time........but they always respected him.
No need to lie about it.
