Do you like Jacques Martin as Habs coach?

How many people here actually
the games this year? I see a lot of puck possession and timely passing. A whole lot of great chances created by controlling the play, something which I haven't seen the habs do in a long time. And to those who would say that Martin 'changed' his system because he was gonna get fired, well BBBzzzztt, wrong, cuz those plays were already there at the beginning of the season. Habs are one of the better puck possession teams and shooting teams in this early season. Oh yeah, Martin does have a defensive 'system', but the actual system is puck possession, and he's been saying that since the beginning but no one seems to listen. Now that he has more tools on offense, the results are becoming better than in the last two seasons.
Detroit is a puck possession team. So is Pittsburgh.
The Canadiens are a long way away from being called a puck possession team.
