Kukla's Korner Hockey

A Boring Hire

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

Jacques Martin is everything the Montreal Canadiens are not—and never have been.

They are blue, blanc et rouge. He is vanilla.

They are the home of firewagon hockey. He is the neutral-zone trap.

They are emotion and excitement and everything that encompasses the city of Montreal. He represents the yawn of a new era.

They are known for success. He is a epitome of the first-round playoff elimination.

They are the kings of the off-day press conference. He is equally dull in both of Canada’s official languages.
