Jacques Martin

Sounds like a great coach - I've been listening to his interview on CBC in the second intermission (Boston vrs. Montreal) and he is quite informed. I like his coaching style.

Anyways, good luck to your team in the playoffs.

He always seems to know what he's talking about no matter what the situation. Not like that Quinn fellow. I'm sure he knows, but he certainly doesn't let on.

Quinn is a great coach, as is Martin.

I managed to catch that interview tonight...I thought it was really good. He wasn't quite as stiff and seemed very knowledgable and calm about the whole series. Very professional about it all.

He is definitely not comfortable in front of a camera, that's for sure...

Especially amazing because he knows that if he loses to Toronto, he'll probably be sent packing.

...

If it's true that he's going to sit out Spezza tonight then he deserves to be sent packing.

I've got some problems with Jason but he's been our best Center this year. He's one of the few Sens forwards who plays well in front of the net & they're going to need that if they want to beat Belfour. Todd White can't do #### in front without ending up on his ass or out of the play. Fisher is better along the boards and Bonk has played like crap ever since returning from injury.

I'm not convinced that Martin will be fired if the Sens lose. Going into a lockout, the Sens will want to retain stability in the front office and behind the bench.

If there is half a season next ala 94-95, the Sens will not want a whole new coaching staff. It usually take a few months for a new coach's message to get thru to the players.

As for the 2 coaches, Martin and Quinn have different coaching styles but both are effective. They really complement each other and I'm very happy both will back with Team Canada.

Well, according to Bob Clarke, he's a 'gutless puke'.

And did Booby Clarke say that to his face? The irony of Booby saying that.

Anyway, if you Sens don't want Jacques, send him our way.

The guy is a class act, still unappreciated it seems by many.

People don't know when they have it good, till it's gone.

Good luck to Jacques and the Sens in the playoffs. There's not a man or a team I want to see win it more this year.

Was that Bob "it's not my fault he got cancer" Clarke? "Gutless puke?" I hope Martin manages to get over it some day. What a stinging barb!

Anyway, Martin keeps his emotions to himself during press conferences or interviews. Unlike Quinn, who occasionally says the truly stupid such as "Alfredsson should be banned for life" for hitting Tucker. I'm sure Quinn is trying to get an advantage somehow, but he comes across as a pitiful whiner who has never lost a game without the refs conspiring against him.

I like Martin, I just don't like him on the Sens. But I love him on with Team Canada as assistant to Quinn. Quinn also likes him too and they never send any verbal jabs at each other. Unappreciated by many? yes. But not by the Sens brass. Didn't he just sign an extension?
