The Hockey Central guys on Sportsnet were suggesting that Jacques Martin could be the next coach of the Habs. He’s been around, and he’s also bilingual, which seems to be of utmost importance.
But then Bill Watters summed it up by beautifully by asking why Montreal would bother with a guy like Martin who couldn’t win playoff games with Ottawa and couldn’t win anything in Florida. So why would the Canadiens be interested?
These are good questions. Jacques Martin in Montreal. Something to think about.
And as an excellent aside, Bill Watters comes from a special place. Orillia. My hometown. Does it get any more interesting than that?
