And depends on the health of the likes of Markov and other players like Subban how are difficult to replace.
If both of the above conditions are fulfilled, there is a reasonable chance. Edit: what I mean by meritocratic... Imagine this line-up with both Gallys, and one of Tinordi or Beaulieu cracking the lineup because they are outperforming established players...
That would be beautiful. I can't remember the last coach to do that for us.
Martin was okay in his own right, we saw PK and lots of youngsters emerge but Timmins had a say in that as well.
