Montreal Players Get The Message

from Canadiens.com,

When the players arrived at the Bell Centre for an early meeting on Saturday morning, it was about more than just Xs and Os.

Before hitting the ice for their usual morning skate ahead of Saturday’s game against the Devils, the Habs received some surprising news from general manager Pierre Gauthier. Not happy with his team’s current 13-12-7 record, Gauthier had relieved head coach Jacques Martin of his duties, handing over the reins to Randy Cunneyworth for the remainder of the season.

“It was a shock for us this morning, but it sends a message,” confirmed Tomas Plekanec, who will have now played for five different head coaches during his eight years in Montreal. “We’re not happy with where we are now and we need to pick it up. We’re in this together. There’s definitely more in this group than we’ve shown and it’s up to us players to prove that. We’re the ones on the ice and we need to be better.”
