Genuinely, that’s a first. Can anyone remember a coach or assistant being dismissed this close to a game? Also, an odd choice. Yes, the power play has struggled, and Perry Pearn is responsible for that aspect of the team, but he’s had a lot of success in the previous two seasons.
So the fans got their head, but it’s no John the Baptist. One has to figure that Jacques Martin is safe after an assistant alone is dismissed, no? At least for now?
Has Montreal become a circus? The next week could be very, very interesting.

About The Upper Canadien
The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.
I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
