Just to put things into perspective. The Habs are 15-21-6 under Cunneyworth. This projects to 70 points over 82 games -- the only team this would beat is Columbus.

This entire thing has turned the Habs into the Edmonton Oilers. Let's hope that they don't fall in the same pit of incompetence and/or decide to suck for five years.
Jacques Martin averaged out to be a 90 point coach for us over his three seasons and we were out of the playoffs with him this year. He wasn't all that great himself man. Let's face facts, this wasn't all that great a team to begin with. And while I don't think RC has done a particularly great job, he was thrown into the deep end of the pool with his arms tied behind his back and told to swim.

He was set up to fail. It's not surprising in the least that this is exactly what's happened.
