Norman Flynn, invited on BPM Sports, took a lot of time to discuss Martin St-Louis' performance and the end-of-season evaluation of the Montreal Canadiens during his appearance.

Flynn's comments have sparked a big online reaction.
Basically, he believes that the team was making excuses to justify their end-of-season results and directly criticizes head coach Martin St-Louis.
« Too many excuses, I don't like excuses. Last year, I said not to judge Martin St-Louis, it wasn't his team. This year, it was his team and there are things I didn't like. For example, we're at game #50 and you're still talking to me about your defensive system, listen, if your defensive system isn't there by game 50, there's a serious problem. You can have a lot of young players, but a game system is not that complicated. » - Norman Flynn

Flynn went too far.
However, it should not be forgotten that even in the 50th game of the season, Martin St-Louis was fielding players who had barely ten games of experience in the National Hockey League, due to the arrival of new players such as Rafael Harvey-Pinard, Alex Belzile, Jesse Ylonen, Sean Farrell, and others.
Norman Flynn does not seem to take into account the fact that St-Louis constantly needed to start over due to the numerous injuries and large number of new players in his lineup each week. At one point in the season, nearly a dozen players who had started the season in Montreal were missing, as noted by Marqueur colleagues.
