Then he was fired and replaced by a guy who believes that the best way to help a shorthanded roster is to make it more shorthanded.
The most amazing thing, to me, quite beyond rolling four lines and silly scratchings and this odd Blunden fetish, is how little Cunneyworth seems to be aware of why Martin did what he did. He was right there!
Why would he keep Martin's lines and jumble their roles? It only makes sense to use Moen on the Plekanec line if they're going to be your primary defensive unit. If you are going to give them offensive draws, use Kostitsyn!
Martin's not coming back...give it up already.
