If Martin didn't already have a shot with us, he would be a top candidate, why wouldn't he be? We're going a new direction and we just fired him. Only normal he shouldn't return.
I actually didn't get the impression he was trying to resist bashing Martin. I got the impression he was just going with the flow and more of a "yah now that spacek brings it up, I guess I agree with him" type of way. Maybe it's just me, but I found it a major contrast to how he explained Gauthier and the 15 min off the record conversation.
I don't disagree that habs need new voice or anything like that, but I think Martin did fairly well with our group that was assembled in a summer.
