  • Comment on Canadiens name Therrien coach (2012-06-05 10:40:30)
    If I recall, the talent pool of players on the Habs teams he coached was pretty shallow. Also, I would hope that 10 years on he has learned from his mistakes and has grown as a coach and as a person. I'm not saying I'm overly excited by his selection, but, the organization today is in a much better place (following the purging and recent hires) than it was during his first go round. Hopefully Bergevin, Dudley, Mellanby, and Timmins will provide him with the horses to be successful.

    alestar...could just be posturing or mind games on the part of teams that will draft later...hoping to dissuade or scare teams with the second or third pick from selecting him.

    LOL. Great anecdote! Sadly, the fact that nothing makes sense does make perfect sense to me...sigh.

    Thanks for this information....clarifies some things. I liked it better though when I thought he was American. Hey, at least readers of Grantland residing south of the border are receiving a bit of an education about hockey.

    I am slow to read sarcasm. It is, however, very obvious on the re-read :) "If you're a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, you can probably say "we," because your faithful devotion to that miserable team is the principal reason they will always be s**t.
