Jacques Martin on Radio-Canada's Tout le monde en parle

Earlier this season, many fans and journalists were calling for the head of Jacques Martin.

It was said that his methods were outdated, his communication skills inadequate.

On December 17th 2011, these people got their wish. Martin was relieved of his duties, replaced by Randy Cunneyworth.

Be careful what you wish for. Not only were the Canadiens – who would eventually lead the league in man-games lost to injury – only two points out of a playoff berth, but it also turns out that Jacques Martin is a far more pleasant, good humored and loquacious individual than many had given him credit.

Last night, he appeared on Radio-Canada’s Tout le monde en parle program and delivered a highly-entertaining interview.

For your viewing pleasure, here is the video (in French) below. His answer regarding Scott Gomez is priceless.
