We don't know his lines or style, can't say where they will land. All I know is it wont mesh immediatly, they have been playing Martins ****** "system" for the past few years and change takes time.
I also figure this coaching staff will need some time to adjust since they've all been away from the NHL the last few years aside from Groulx.

You also have to wonder how essentially 2/3's of the team not playing any hockey from early April to whenever it gets settled will impact this team. That's a lot of time off. I see a lot of ''rust'' early on, especially from a guy like Gionta who missed the 2nd half and could have missed a full calendar year by the time the league opens up.
