Talking about Martin and Gainey.
Last year they were both GMs, 1 for Montreal, the other for Florida, both equal ranked both doing the exact same job.
So how did this Hiring of J Martin happen exactly?
I'm guessing something like...
*Season Ends, Penguins the New SC Champs.... yay?*
*Gainey in office contemplating on finding a new coach, calls Martin*
Martin: A hoy hoy?
Gainey: Hey Jack it's Bob
Martin: Mr. Gainey, what a pleasure, how can I help you today?
Gainey: Well Jack see I'm making a whole bunch of changes on the team and I was wondering..... *Martin cuts Gainey off*
Martin: No Bob, I will not trade you David Booth for Tanguay, Halak and a 2nd.
Gainey: No Jack that's not it, I want you!
Martin: Me... Me?!? what do you mean you want Me??
Gainey: Yes you heard me correctly, I want YOU!
Martin: Bob I'm sorry but I am not available to you, you are not my type.
Gainey: *confused* No Jack, what I mean is I want you to be my team's new coach next year.
Martin: Oh I see. Bob come on now, do I call you asking to be the coach of the Panthers? This is something I will have to think about for a long time. This is not an easy decision you know.
Gainey: Jack, I promise to keep your same salary, similar benefits, and I'll add in 1 year's worth of free St-Hubert.
Martin: Bob, you're making this difficult for me. Give me some time I need to think about this *Puts Gainey on Hold and screams to Himself: YES Finally I can get out of here!!*
*After leaving Gainey on hold for a full 5 seconds*
Martin: Bob, after thinking about this thoroughly, I accept your proposal.
*Martin Calls TSN and advises them of the news, then quickly jumps on the first plane out of Florida*
*2 Mins later*
TSN: BREAKING NEWS: Habs have just signed Jaques Martin as their new head coach.
