Montreal Fires Martin!

Not sure if this warrants its own thread, but now we get to laugh at his unemployed ***.

I'm usually not the vindictive type. Live and let live, right?

NOT IN THIS CASE!!

Got us Matthias via trade, drafted Markstrom and Kuli, (just off the top of my head) and I don't think did a terrible job as GM for a coach. I mean, some bad contracts, plenty to be desired, but if I was forced to choose him or Keenan, I'll take JM.

He was also given crap to work with this season in Montreal, it's not going to get better for them, imo.

This! We were a lot better off after he left, than before he was hired.

That's exactly what my first thought was after how the team has performed overall this season, especially in one of the two biggest hockey markets in North America.

Sexton drafted Kuli iirc.

Don't understand the posters hating on him. Not like he was given the greatest team to work with, a prospect pool full of lol prospects, and a meddling owner in Cohen.

I'm glad he's gone, like Tallon and Dineen, but it's not like he was Mike Keenan here.

My biggest problems with JM was the BS with JBlow and the Olesz contract. Should have traded him long before he did. Horrible decision on giving Olesz that much $$. Full marks for cleaning up the Keenan debacle called the Luongo trade. Feel like he left this team in the lurch afterward given the abrupt departure to Montreal.

Ah, thanks. Forgot he was GM at any level, lol. Just knew it wasn't Tallon. Still, I don't think he was the worst we've had in here the past decade.

Mike Keenan agrees with you.

Yeah, but that was Cohen sticking his nose in as usual. Really, any GM in his era was stifled, guy was awful for this team.
