Yup... like the way you think: pull the teeth and leave the infection. I'll find another dentist.

You don't use a thoroughbred as a plow horse, and vice versa. Therrien may THINK he has a winning formula, but he doesn't; and he DOES have the players to compete, but they didn't. These are pro sports players, and they don't believe in their coach or his system, proven or not. All it takes is watching the way they looked at the bench; disinterested, aloof. AND I'm NOT talking about the players only. The coaches looked lost, and if they don't have the answers, find some that do. When coaches use players out of position, bench positives, keep playing negatives you'll never get the room back. It is irreversible; Losing the confidence of your team is not going to be retrieved like a misplaced set of car keys. He was hired by a rookie GM who wanted an experienced coach. Wrong guy for the players under contract. The organization blew it.

Briere would be throwing stones in a glass house, IMO. When Douglas Murray was faster than he was 2-3 times out of the D-zone last night . I thought CBC had found a new way to have a regular speed on one player, and slow motion on the other. IF the story is that Briere was brought in for his Playoff experience and abilities, I suspect we won't ever know what that looks like.

At least there was one professional athlete on the ice last night with a Montreal uniform that has pride in his performance. Too bad he doesn't back check.

Agreed he never promised a Cup contender. A team that gives a complete game effort may be nice to watch. The management IS to be held accountable to ice a team that can do that. And if you would rather not see the Habs in the playoffs, we will agree to disagree on that. Tanking the season is a losers' way. Ask Edmonton how its working for them.

This coach has lost the room. There is no doubt in my mind. As suspect as MT's coaching decisions are, he is a professional coach and he still cannot motivate this team into playing any semblance of a 5 man unit, something that Amateurs understand is needed. Gallant and Daigneault aren't the answer; There is no plan there. When you look at the camera shots of the bench, there is no talking; not even eye contact. IMO, this team needs two moves immediately. Replace the coach and possibly his staff, then a major trade to wake up the room. At this point, I'm not even certain it matters who you trade.These last 15 games prove it. This is not a team that can compete for a Cup. Too small up front, too small to effectively backcheck, open neutral zone where no one pays the price when they enter your zone, healthy scratch your "shooter" and "hard hitting Defenseman".....OHL and QMHA players are showing better skill. Heartbreaking to watch this from my favorite team. New depths of suckitude? Even worse, we now have to look up at Toronto in the standings.
