Oh yeah, and **** hiring back Martin, those were dark times. Most boring brand of hockey I've ever seen. It would be okay if we were continually finishing in the top 3 in the conference ever year, or winning cups, but we weren't. We didn't go to the conference final in 2010 because of Martin, we got there because of Halak, even the most die hard 12 year old fans will admit to that.

Do you all already forget the countless last minute leads that were blown under Martin because of his "sit back and protect the 1 goal lead for the entire 3rd period" approach? We are supposed to be going through a youth movement right now, do you think playing that BS system is going to develop our offensive youth? No. It was the classic "score 2 goals a game and hope we win 2-1" mindset. Such a disgusting brand of hockey.

Just because it sucks right now, doesn't mean it didn't suck back then. Because it did. A lot. IMO the Gauthier/Martin era was absolute rock bottom.
And Laviolette failed in Philly with a better team.
