Trini, I think it is fair to say that the only players who have benefitted under the michel therrien personal improvement program are Bouillon, Murray and perhaps Desharnais. His work with the youts has been disastrous. I was a Therrien skeptic from the beginning, and doubted even the 'he was good with the kids in Pittsburgh ' narrative. His first moves as coach were to bench Eller and misuse and malign Subban. This team is not going anywhere under Therrien. I always thought he was a experienced short timer while Bergevin got his legs under him. The initial exceding expectations was a concern. Now I am more worried that Bergevin just does not see it "Et le but!"

Wet diarrhea is the new standard for crap, Mike. And you don't want to know what is the new standard for diarrhea "Et le but!"

The daughter of a friend of mine was a Sunshine Girl twice in the last year? I never read the Sun (not even for the articles) so how did I know? Proud Dad told me. Awk-ward! "Et le but!"

"Lyndon Slewidge is great." He is that former cop who sings the anthem in Ottawa? I hadn't noticed that the definition of great had been changed to "terrible". The whole category of anthem singers is inherently crappy. Yes, no one will sound good in a difficult room that you can never practice for in a meaningful way since it would behave totally differently with 20,000 bodies in it. I am sure the challenges of singing under such circumstances scare away lots of decent singers who realize it is a fools errand, leaving it largely the province of .... well... fools. Which explains the presence of Rene Rancourt. But after Rene Rancourt, there is no one as bad as cop boy. In fact I can imagine Rene Rancourt actually making a go of it singing Dean Martin ditties in a Holiday Inn lounge off Route 9 in Brookline in front of a group of plumbing contractors and their wives from Cleveland in town for Flushfair 2013. But Officer Sewage's half octave range and pitch from hell I can't imagine tolerating him even under those circumstances. "Et le but!"

Short version So do we still fire Therrien? Yes but no rush. There needs to be a viable successor and the pool is small, and now will not contain Patrick Roy. The end game should be having a real long term coach by next season. Do we still get rid of Gorges and Desharnais? No, never thought so. He is somewhat overpaid but still more than useful. Yes, if you can get some kind of return while his game is back. The issue is the term and dollars on the contract. The Habs have more than enough Centers especially if the role is a sheltered minutes exploitation line where Briere or Bournival could play. Is Bergevin still an idiot? No, but made some odd moves - generous with DD, hardball with PK, questionable Briere signing - and also succumbed to the MOAR BIGGER meme, resulting in Parros and Murray. No long term deviation from what has to be the plan to build to the window in the second half of the decade. Are we still ‘Not A Playoff Team’? I dunno. I always thought that last year's 2nd place in the East was a bit of an illusion but expected this year the Habs would finish somewhere between 3rd and 8th in the East, more likely in the middle of that range. Looks to be about right. "Et le but!"

Duthie is very good. Has been from his sudden last minute replacement start. He will be snapped up somewhere. I like Bob McKenzie Dreger is worthless Aaron Ward is less than worthless. They have some decent guys doing play by play who will likely get picked up by Rogers. Kypreos and Doug McLean will be out of jobs. Rogers SportsNet will have to do a housecleaning and rebranding so that their huge splash is not tainted by the stench of the current low rent third string crowd "Et le but!"

Coderre has every right, but it is stupid for him to do.Just my opinion, but I think the mayor should stick to positive platitudes when talking about the local sporting teams. Bask in their reflected glory etc. When he starts heckling the slumping players it makes him look petty and mean. But hey, my mayor smokes crack, and has to qualifiy his crack smoking as happening during "one of my drunken stupors", and likes to get high and threaten people's lives, so whatta I know? "Et le but!"
