Martin wasn't that bad but we were a boring team under him. I think results are the most important thing but look at Carbo's 08 team, they were exciting and in first. I didn't like Jacques lack of emotion and hate the fact he didn't communicate with his players, I thought that was Carbo's problem? Letting Muller go while not having a good communicator behind the bench was also a huge error in judgment.
Today's players are a different breed and you need a different mindset in dealing with them these days, all the old school coaches acts' wear thin within a few seasons as they did here, hopefully Bergy addresses this with the head coaching hire.
I used to defend Gauthier because I liked a lot of his moves (Cole, Emelin, Eller) but it is hard to hear some of these things come out after his dismissal. It's a shame to think what this team could have achieved the last few years with a few tweaks here and there,
and a clearer vision from top to bottom.
Gainey MUST be blamed too.
Bringing and giving huge contracts in the same period to Gomez-Gionta and Cammy wasn't too brilliant.
Getting Spacek, Mara and Gill instead of keeping a guy like Streit was not very smart too.
As for Spacek, he never accepted to play on the right side under Martin who was stucked with too many lest d-men.
