Just my opinion, but the Carbo hate is way overblown.
I'm not crazy about the way Martin wants the team to play but they have never looked nearly as bad under him as they did during Carbonneau's final months. Carbo is much more entertaining to listen to and I really wanted him to succeed as our coach, but the team was completely lifeless and quit near the end.

I couldn't take much more of Dandenault moving from a healthy scratch on D to first-line winger anyways. Between that, Kostopoulos, Streit...I don't think he knew what he was doing when putting lineups together. The way he handled Samsonov's whining to the media was pretty pathetic as well.
