- Comment on Canadiens name Therrien coach
At first, I hated it... Why would the Habs bring back one of their worst coaches in history? When he was our coach, we were outshot 40-25 every night. When we replaced him with Julien, the team improved ten-fold. When the Penguins got rid of him, they won a Stanley Cup. Players hate playing for him and he doesn't get results. Now, I don't mind it so much as I realize what the plan is. Bergevin plans to use the Penguins success model and tank two more years to get high picks. Youngsters like Kristo, Gallagher, Leblanc, Tinordi and Beaulieu will be ready by then. With the Gomez, Gionta, Markov and Kaberle contracts expiring, the team will have freed up over $22M in cap space for free agents to round out the team. And of course fire Therrien after two last-place seasons.
- Comment on Photos: Carey Price's new mask
Why doesn't Price get a mask like the one Karri Ramo had in Tampa? You know, the one with the drawing of the brains on top... I guess in Price's case, they'd have to draw a hollow skull.
