I don't think the Nords were actively shopping their coach, however. In fact, I doubt such a thing has ever happened and it would spell disaster.
I wondered at the time if the Colorado Avalanche trade of Janne Laukkanen to the Ottawa Senators for the rights of Brad Larsen was the thank you for letting Martin go in the middle of the season.
