Odd timing, but this is good news. The key is to pick the right replacement. This year is a wash. Hopefully Gauthier is given his walking papers at the end of the season and the Habs leave no stone unturned looking for a GM and HC.
Yes, that will mean the team plays into more mistakes. That should work out very nicely for us. Martin's discipline was making the Habs far too tough, allowing them to play well against the far more talented Bruins, they did us a big favor.
Thank you Gainey!
First off the Bruins have nothing to do with his firing.
Secondly, Martin's style of coaching was also stifling for talented forwards. What makes you think the team won't be disciplined under a new coach? It's not like PG waves a magic wand and everything they've worked on disappears.
Anyway, JM's problem was his inability to adjust in game and his poor decision making which cost us games.
