It is simple to see how effective or not Jacques Martin was as a coach......and whether he was a great tactician as so many claim him to be.

All one has to do is look at the LA Kings.

Do the Kings play a passive defense? No.

Do the Kings send in multiple players on the forecheck? Yes.

Are the Kings a dump and chase hockey team? No.

Three major flaws of Jacques Martin NOT being utilized by the LA Kings, the hottest team in the NHL and possible Stanley Cup Champions.

Martin was lost. He was stuck in the time warp of the early 2000's trying to be a Jacques Lemaire clone.

Hockey has changed.....
