Eller is a dud, nothing more. DLR is now a cheaper option. Trade Eller.

Funny thing is I can't think of one single young players mishandled by Therrien. When you look at the progress of Galchenyuk, Beaulieu, Gallagher and Subban, you have to notice how well Therrien is managing the youth. It was the same when he was in Pittsburgh.

That's what I wish for. A major trade this Summer when thsese teams start to jettison salaries. Keep your assets MB.

Therrien arrived in 2012-2013 and had a great influence on Pacioretty. Max had a .42 GoalPerGame ratio in 2011-2012, .34 the year Therrien arrived but then went up at .53 and .48 the following years. PPG progression for Max: .82, .88, .82, and .87 Where the result is astonishing the +/- recalculated on a 82 games season: 2, 15, 9, 44 However, the same way I don't believe a coach has that much influence on each individual players because of external factors, I have also to acknowledge that Pacioretty would probably have improved by himself nevertheless. The +/- tho is a different story as it often reflects the whole team performance.

They can also return Bowman to the AHL.

Who were the 3 stars? TSN skipped it.
- Comment on Rene Bourque clears waivers, sent to Hamilton by Canadiens; Drayson Bowman called up (2014-11-10 18:34:14)
My guess is he was recalled only as a preventive measure. I am not expecting him to be in the line-up unless there is a flu going around the locker room. Just a feeling.

Yes, but I was alone and nobody noticed.
