GM Pierre Gauthier has just finished the job of unilaterally dismantling the most effective third line we had in 15 years, a line that helped win series against Washington and Pittsburgh: Moore-Lapierre-Pyatt.
I hope for the club's sake that we have equal or better two-players with as high a responsibility ratio ready to step in.
For every Pouliot, Latendresse, D;agostini and Sergei there is a White, Eller, pacioretty Weber, Desharnais and Subban.
Although i agree that Martin has a short leash with younger players, i don't think he's entirely the problem.
White, Eller, Weber have proven nothing so far. And Max Pax pretty much became the player he is because he found his game in Hamilton. DD is a little fighter and got everything on his own everywhere he went. As for PK well he's a uber talented guy who almost was NHL ready the moment he joined the Habs, he's a rare talent. Sure Martin did well with him but that's the thing: Martin can coach guys that are NHL ready, you gave them a little tough love and send them on the ice but he can't groom guys into becoming hockey players by fixing their problems.
