therrien's team fell apart without emelin. martin had to do without markov one year, and without gorges and markov the other

Without Markov and Gorges, Emelin wasn't here yet, he had to do it with guys like Spacek, Sopel, Mara, Picard, with MaxPac playing 35ish games. He managed to make us finished 6th, I don't think people realize how remarkable that was.
He managed to get the best out of our guys and knew when to use youngsters more, or not.

I'm not sure why Gauthier fired him. Not sure where that came from. But Martin was a good coach. People can criticize him about his PO record, but you don't get to coach 1000 NHL games if you don't know what you're doing.
