I think the habs don't have any better option available right now so RC till the end of the season. If somone perfect hits the market (e.g Lindy Ruff ) I think they will snatch him up.

JM was screwed when Gomez decided to regress into crap, and when Gauthier decided to waste 6 million dollars on Markov.

It's a miracle that JM has this team within 2 points of a playoff spot with the injuries and personnel that he's been forced to use.

I didn't care for him as a coach, but you can't say he that he hasn't made this team competitive.

I wish Cunneyworth well, but he certainly has his work cut out for him.
Yes what a waste it is to sign your best dman. What kind of a lynchmob would have been outside the bell had he not signed him and Markov regained form on another team? He made a decision with the available facts. Maybe he lost this gamble who knows. Markov could come back and be dominant and you would skulk away into the shadows wouldn't you?
