Jacques Martin is the last person you would want coaching this hockey club, would not mesh well with Matt Duchene, he'd try to force him to change his style and become more of a defensive forward and not let him go. Remember what happened with Jason Spezza during his time in Ottawa? There was a rift there because Spezza is not the kind of player Martin likes, so he wouldn't use him much. Also in Georges Laraque's book he stated that Jacques Martin is by far the worst and most non-trustworthy coach he has ever played for.

I would rather this team hire Mike Keenan or Patrick Roy. If Keenan could get the most out of JR I see no reason for him to not get the same out of guys like Duchene, Landeskog, O'Reilly, Johnson etc
