I'm not a big fan of Martin's coaching but I don't think he is a horrible coach either. The one thing I would like to see him do, especially with his forward lines, is try to put together come complementary skill sets and stick with it for a while.
For example, give Gomez-Pacioretty-Gionta at least ten games together before making a decision. It isn't going to work every game but over time the chemistry should improve and we should finally have a cohesive line.
Do the same for all three top lines. And if one guy goes down, like Cammalleri, don't screw up the other two lines to find the magic formula. If that meant calling up and sticking Palushaj with Pleks and Cole or with Pleks and Kostistsyn, that is then at least the other guys haven't been disrupted so much.
It's not like it would affect our scoring in a negative way. And it would only be a short term solution until Cammalleri returned.
I would still like to see the line of Eller, Kostitsyn and Desharnais back together but if not that, then Eller, Cole and Desharnais.
It's a long season and allowing these three man units to develop together over the course of the season could pay dividends for everyone at the end.
