Habs Fire Coach

Standard Spin: The Montreal Canadiens have fired coach Jacques Martin after starting the season 13-12-7 (which is actually 13-19 when you add the OTLs to the regular losses).  This appears more like a move to just shake things up and wake up the roster.  The reality is that the Habs are laden with big-salary, oft-injured, and aging talent (Markov, Gionta, Gomez), as well as un-met potential (Cammalleri).  At this point it looks like a lost season in Montreal and the need for rebuilding.
