PITTSBURGH -- There will be a familiar face behind the Montreal Canadiens bench.
The Habs have called a news conference for today where they're expected to name Jacques Martin as their head coach.
League sources say Martin has stepped down from his post as GM of the Florida Panthers because of the financial instability of the club and the possibility they may be sold.
Martin will be a solid choice for the Habs. He will bring stability and could help get the club back to respectability.
Is this the right move for the Habs? Can Martin turn around this team? Have your say in our forum.
Habs to hire Martin
They need someone who can put the puck in the net and bang a bit, not prima donna figure skaters.

I agree with all the comments about how being a Habs fan, second best just won't do. My hubby is a Leaf fan, you can just imagine how much fun I have with that.. :-)
Anyway - guys, get your eyes out of your arses and let the players do what they are paid to do; PLAY HOCKEY!!

Every time Kovalev is mentioned in a negative way in the Montreal press, a report in a Russian newspaper surfaces that just deepens the problem.
Kovalev is just as admired as Koivu with some journalists here in Montreal, these same journalists that publish a negative column concerning the language Koivu uses to address the media while Koivu is hospitalized, and goes after Kovalev for issuing similar statements about the club, coach, and team issues in yet another russian paper and then has other journalists bringing forth that the story is flawed or the sources are questionable.
Last night Darren Dreger spoke and texted with Kovalev, and then reported his findings on TV. Dreger has a lot more to lose if he does not report properly.
It would be proper for jounalists to actually report truth based on accurate information that can be proven if necessary.
But then again, that wouldn't sell many papers would it?
