You did the same with me despite me repeatedly saying he made plenty of mistakes. Heck, he started his tenure here making two big mistakes imo, chasing SK and Lats away.
Calling up skilled players to put them on the 4th line is another thing I criticized him on.
He made more mistakes, but he also did good things, and our team performed decently well under him considering all the injuries and lack of star power.
Kriss, no coach is mistake free. None. Its just that the mistakes that Martin made are now being overlooked and dismissed. Palushaj is a good example of that.

Palushaj is not a 4th line player. I am all for developing our prospects. Palushaj should have been given a chance to play on a top 9 line or be left in Hamilton to hone his game like Pacioretty. Much like Leblanc.

Palushaj and Leblanc will have to fight to replace scoring wingers in Montreal, not grinding wingers.

I do get what you are saying though and agree with it to a certain extent.
