Interesting choice for Montreal. If they're looking to change things up Martin can do that. They came awfully close to missing the playoffs this year, so based on his experience in Florida I think he knows what it takes to get them over that hurdle to officially rejoining the outside teams looking in at postseason play. Or maybe they wanted a guy they felt would be familiar with perennial disappointment, which he seemed to become adept at during his Ottawa days.
But things could be worse. They haven't named Kovalev captain yet.
Steve Webb for Commissioner.
