Gionta and Desharnais are both pretty good forecheckers though so file that one for how much size actually matters versus being good.

Not to mention Martin has had much more injury problems then Carboneau ever did. The only year Montreal was good under Carboneau they had one of the best injury situations in the entire league. This year Martin is facing the worst injury situation in the NHL(although the Penguins and Blue Jackets aren't that far behind)
LOL that's bull ****. Not even close. So many teams had brutal BRUTAL injuries and still managed okay or decently. Injuries are most definitely no longer an excuse.
