If you watch the Gorges and Cammalleri interviews, I think they tell a lot about the state of the dressing room without saying it directly.
Gorges hinted that a good chunk of the guys weren't playing for Martin anymore, and Cammalleri didn't really deny the question of the players' and coach's relationship eroding. Sounds like what lot of people suspected.
It seemed to me like he just misheard the question as "Were you expecting something like this to happen/Jacques to be fired", as he was asked "sorry you just answered this" and likely the question was re-phrased slightly so he was all primed to give his exact same answer, realized the question had changed slightly, and then answered.
But of course all Habs fans would rather assume the most dramatic one, that he was about to spill the beans, Gauthier gave him the look of death from a hole in the wall where he spies on players, and he was scared into the PC answer, haha.
Anyway, apparently I'm alone in this, seemed harmless to me.
