You are absolutely right. It seems like the entire organization is in need of a massive overhaul; personnel from management right down to player. There is a need for an attitude adjustment...years in the making. McLean never seemed to have the persona fitting a coach....mind you...what do they say about people in glass houses?

You basically got it. Beaulieu sounded a little more sarcastic when commenting on the need for him to brush up on his skills in Hamilton.

Max Pacioretty once told me, "Only when you learn to love David Desharnais, can you learn to love yourself....and only then can the healing truly begin." He went on about how all this time he thought it was Mike Therrien who was making him a better person....but he was wrong....it was Davey.

That coach would obviously have to experience a few sessions at the Michel Therrien personality clinic to make him a better person. Why would that Habs make that sort of investment when they have the real MT in the flesh?

Not a lot of DD criticism here today...Timo and Denis Coderre must be out on a lunch date.

...just to add my 2 cents on the DD controversy; I give him full credit as one of the few players who is willing to go into the corners against guys twice his size and come out with the puck every time. He did it over and over again against Chara in the playoffs last year and he continues to do it this year. He's not a first line centre and I'm OK with that; he is still solid and performs. Heck, even if his sole purpose was to be a security blanket for Patches, I'm OK with that too. 2 more cents on Eller; I can see why he can be the whipping boy sometimes because he doesn't show any emotion. It's not a bad thing necessarily, it's just hard to get a read on his intensity level so it's easier to pass judgment on his level of play.
