With all respect, I think there's some dynamics you might not understand in hockey.

If you think Martin told his team after the Sens goal "OK guys, time to sit back", you're wrong. If you play or played hockey, you know how this concept of momentum actually works. It's hard to understand, and even harder to work against it.

Also, showing emotions (or character) behind the bench isn't always good. Players need to feel the coach is in control, otherwise, they lose it themselves and it never gives good results.

Still, I'm not a Jacques Martin fan at all. I don't think he's the kind of coach this team needs. But not for the reasons you bring here.
