Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
There is a new sheriff in town for 2009-10, and the certainty is that Jacques Martin will be under the microscope at least as much as any of the flood of acquisitions who’ll be wearing the Canadiens jersey this season.
He is coming here at a time when nothing less than winning consistently is at the top of the team’s priority list. Anything less is unacceptable. A 2008-09 season when the team came out sprinting in the first half and disappeared in the second is off the board.
You can include me among the group that was surprised - with gusts up to shock - when Martin was named head coach long before Bob Gainey went about the business of putting a new face on the Canadiens. Now, what remains to be seen is what Martin does with it.
