They look like Team Canada against Team Latvia tonight.

They play such a great system. Please, please please tell me again how good of a coach MT is.

MT is very happy how well they dump the puck and ice it.

Let's just watch our team ice the puck and dump it in corners for the entire period. Fun to watch, and very effective in keeping the lead. Not!

Transition year? Not buying it. Price, Subban, Parioretty are playing the best hockey of his career. We are super healthy. Two deadlines in a row, MB spent draft picks for some really good player. Our D now has Subban, Markov, Petry, Bealieu, Gilbert, Gonchar, Pateryn, Tinordi and Weaver. Things are falling in place for us, and this transition thing is just a PR thing. I am not buying it. MB wants us to compete now.

Check this out. The more fact-based literature on Therrien I read, the sooner I want him fired. http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-hockey/25107259/can-michel-therrien-hockey-lead-to-a-stanley-cup-for-the-canadiens Therrien has a reputation for being a great defensive coach and having a strong defensive system. But good defensive hockey doesn't result in consistently being one of the 10 worst teams in the league when it comes to preventing shots and being fortunate enough to have a great goalie.

Not buying it. He is a frustrating, old school coach that does not get the best out of the players. They score 1-2 goals per game (empty netters not counting) and you want to tell me that they are coached well? Our success is 100% Carey Price and his unreal saves. With an average NHL goaltending, this team is not even a playoff team. I have read a number of articles that support this (I should have bookmarked them for discussions like this) People, don't be naive. Therrien is one terrible, terrible coach. I hope his ass is fired as soon as possible.

Yes, I still remember that link. Thank you for having posted it
- Comment on Carey Price or Sidney Crosby as No. 1 draft pick today? (2015-03-08 19:06:48)
Well, what would you prefer: Eller + Price? or Halak + Kopitar? (assuming we would picked Kopitar over Price, and not traded Halak for Eller). Me, I'd take Halak + Kopitar until this year. From now on, I think I am happy with the current team. Galchenyuk is coming up. He has all the tools of a future #1 center. We will be good with Galchenyuk, Pacioretty, Subban, Price core. Price will be good for another 5-10 years, while Kopitar's production will only slow down in his 30s. It was tough to watch the past decade, but now I think we are better off.

Hi all, if I had to start a team, I would still start with Crosby. With Crosby on the ice, your goaltender does not have to be as good because you are more dangerous with the puck. Plus, Crosby was a game-changer from his first season, whereas Carey only started to really hit his prime in the recent years. Overall, from 2005 draft, this would be my choice: 1. Sidney Crosby (835 points in 611 games is hard to beat) 2. Carey Price (and he will be great for another 5-10 years. Goalies usually last a little longer than other positions) 3. Anze Kopitar 4. Kris Letang 5. Tuuka Rask 6. Paul Stastny 7. TJ Oshie 8. Bobby Ryan 9. Keith Yandle 10. Patric Hornqvist Other players I like from the draft are James Neal, Vlasic, Ben Bishop, Niskanen, M. Stall. I don't think Quick is as good. His numbers are very average, and I would rather have Price, Rask or Bishop in G, otherwise I'd take one of the above players before I'd take Quick. Overall, not a superbly deep draft. But Price and Crosby would be nice to have on the same team. Lucky team Canada!
