Jacques Martin May Leave Florida For Montreal

added 11:44am, from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

Martin, 56, just completed his third season as Florida’s general manager. He coached the team for three seasons before being relieved of that duty last summer. Martin was
asked to stay on as general manager by owner Alan Cohen and Martin agreed, signing a four-year contract.

What sort of compensation the Canadiens would give to the Panthers isn’t clear, and it is not known if Martin would personally have to buy out his own contract to leave.
