They were turning things around and getting bodies back. Saying they could have made the playoffs is anything but a reach. Saying the problem was "obviously" Martin is just blind hate for the guy. The team took a nose-dive to the bottom of the standings and was just a complete mess after he was fired yet he was obviously the problem?
Having said that, I don't mind the change in ideology and direction. I just think it was done at the worst possible time. I would have rather watch a playoff race than the worst debacle I have ever personally witnessed by a Habs team. They should have just kept status quo, or at least wait until he had a healthy team then at the end of the year if you want to move in another direction you do it.
I could just as easily say you have some sort of sick blind love for the guy, it is just a way of writing off someones opinion.
Apparently there are no delusional people in the world, just jerks who call people delusional. If your feelings are so easily hurt maybe the internet is not for you.
The team took a nose dive AFTER he left and replaced with who? Good argument, blame the guy with zero nhl head coaching experience, that will make Martin look so much better. Why doesn't the wonderful Martin have teams lining up around the block for his services as head coach right now? Oh that's right this isn't 10 years ago.
If anything it was long overdo, he should have been canned in favour of Muller but I am glad it was done when it was done. Your "status quo" nonsense is very indicative of the Gainey era, nothing drastic ever done to get to the next level. Either limp into the playoffs on a wing and prayer or miss and get a middling prospect. Great options those are, working real well for Calgary.
