I like your posts and your rational approach, I agree with it. I just can't, in good conscience, think that Martin was the right coach for this small, speedy squad.
Gomez and Cammalleri all but dried up in his system.
Pleks was heavily overused.
A lot of the kids were underused or misused entirely.
He juggled lines as much, or more, than his predecessor.
And he never altered his approach, which seems reasonable as he was instilling a system which DID get better from season to season (as you assert, and can prove with 5on5 stats) but when the results don't come in and he doesn't change his system... what else is there to do?
Like those Keenan-type screaming coaches, Martin worked until he got tuned out and THAT is supported by Spacek and Gill's comments.
Come on guys, stop picking on MM, he brings a different perspective to the board, and he's passionate about the Habs. I don't always agree with him either, so what?
I like his rationality and he does not pick on other guys here. Can we all just relax and enjoy the differences, or does everyone have to agree all the time? Jeez.
