Looks like the entire old regime is done... Gainey, Gauthier, Martin, Pearn, Cunneyworth, Ladouceur... the team isn't going half-way in this makeover. It looks like they want to get started with a completely clean slate.
Nothing against Larry Carriere, I'm sure he's a nice guy and all, but I hope he's next.
No way. He's a keeper.
The guy is in the organisation since only one year. He has spent half of it at management level and the rest behind the bench where he did not belong.BUT, he learned alot about each and every players and is certainly a reliable source of info for Bergevin and Therrien.
Do you really think they will be able to keep Ovechkin happy with a defensive coach?
I never felt Martin wanted to be as defensive as he was. But the cards he was dealt forced him to be more defensive. I can remember at the beginning of the 2010 - 2011season he said he wanted his d-men to support the rush. But when Markov went down again they were forced to play defensive again. Gill supporting the rush? No defence first.
If you think Martin was bad Hunter was maniacal with defence. Martin was at least able to pull out a few marginal playoff victories as opposed to Hunter's one goal games. And I never thought Martin wanted to take his foot of of the gas as much maybe the players allowed it to happen.
