    Therrien has always been bad but I think here it's more a matter here of "have you ever played hockey" and/or "are you a couch potato" comparisons. Naturally someone who's never played the sport but has only watched can only know so much. I have friends who've played and those who haven't. It's pretty clear cut the ones who've never played think he's a fine coach. Ones like me who've played can see he makes bad choices, bad with players. Has his favorites. Etc. Etc. For a non-athlete, as long as they win it's determined he's a good coach. I think period, he sucks and he was a bad choice from the beginning based on his past. People want to say he's changed. He hasn't changed at all other than toning down his rhetoric behind the bench and in front of the press. That's why there is always a conflict of opinion here and if you can't handle it you should go to another place to post. It's always a battle of those "who know" and those "who think they know". I ask you, did you see anyone out there itching to get Therrien as a coach after Pittsburgh? If Nordiques were still around they'd be going for Therrien. Guarantee it. So enjoy the waves of wins, just don't expect consistency. Therrien is only as good as when the players decide to play. Therrien has little control or obviously little ability to motivate. I fear more with Therrien on the bench, who we will lose because the player doesn't suit Therrien. Play every game as if it is your last one. Guy Lafleur

    Therrien sucks. He always sucked. People say he's better. How so? he punishes young players and lets experienced players F up and go out and waltz around the ice with no recourse. He is still bad at determining lineups. He shuffles lines constantly. He's known for poor motivation skills and pointing the finger at everyone else but himself. Ever heard him say, I f'd up? Never. He stinks. He got his job because he's french and everyone knows it. You can sit and get new players but with Therrien, it will never end there will be players in and out of this team. We'll eventually lose good players because of him and his ways. Therrien had a place. On Anti-chambre, where you could turn off the TV and forget about it. I feel sorry for our younger players, guys like Tinordi who got the shaft but had proven themselves in the playoffs only to go back down to AHL or where-ever. DD vs Eller. Eller is the better player, but when you get shafted to the 3rd and 4th line, how do you think that feels on a player like Eller. I'm sorry to say, but Eller is a better player than DD. Give Eller the time DD gets a game and lets see what happens. Sekac, he's been benched a number of times yet whenever he's on the ice, like Eller he puts in a good effort. It's like a broken record and my only hope is the team gets eliminated quickly from playoffs and Bergevin opens his obviously half-closed eyes and fires Therrien.

    Oh you mean where he shied away from the shot that went in? What was that? Goal 2 or 3. Ya that was cute. Gilbert is average at best. At least they are FINALLY bringing up Tinordi. Play every game as if it is your last one. Guy Lafleur

    Inconsistent offence is a definite on this team. This shooting from the side and nobody in front of the net is pathetic, not to mention a horrible offensive strategy. There should be people driving to the net, looking for rebounds, in the goalies face all the time. There isn't. That loss last night was just plain sad. I knew we were going to lose so it wasn't a shocker. I don't see this team going far in the playoffs myself. Too many inconsistent players. Play every game as if it is your last one. Guy Lafleur

    This is what happens when Montreal sits back with the lead but they never learn or better, Therrien never learns. Overconfidence will bite you in the ass every time. Refs took advantage, game over. Oh well the streak was fun while it lasted. Play every game as if it is your last one. Guy Lafleur
