*shrug* Seemed to work well enough. Pretty amazing though how common the "coach doesn't talk to us" complaint seems to be. Carbo, Martin. Always thought it was a red herring anyway. It wasn't why Carbo was a bad coach.

I don't particularly care about his methods, TBH, as he produced the best 5-on-5 club the Habs have seen in over a decade. That's what matters to me.

And, well, "I don't mind Martin"? That's a damning expression of sheer hatred right there.

Interesting too that Martin was apparently more emotional behind closed doors than behind the bench. There's a lesson in there, too, something to keep in mind for people who judge a coach by how animated he is when the cameras are pointed his way.

Why would I? I see nothing in Spacek's comments that explains away the amazingly inept system (or, rather, lack thereof). Nor the ham-fisted personnel management. Unless, I suppose, they were actually commanded by Gauthier, which I imagine is possible although I doubt even Gauthier would stoop to that much micromanagement, if only because he wouldn't have time!

I'm sure Cunneyworth is a great, likable guy, but he was a terrible coach.
