    impressed by the Habs so far tonight. they're playing as a team and are showing much more creativity in the offensive zone. shame they don't play like this more often. we'd have something to be really excited about.

    but still, it's time for a new coach to bring new ideas.

    It's because they've all banded together to mutiny against Therrien. They're all on the same page.

    Therrien managed to win this battle while the troops regrouped and may have initiated new tactics. The war has only begun.

    Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.

    Conjecture at best. Lefebvre nowhere near ready for a jump. If you saw this where I came across it, I would really question the source.....

    Definitely not a grinding style win vs Carolina.

    This isn't Therrien's team any longer.

    I didn't like how Therrien said they won because the players implemented the system properly.

    Again, it comes off as him throwing the blame off his own shoulders and onto his players. As though it wasn't him or the system that was the problem, but the players not executing it properly/

    No, they are playing Carolina, who are terrible as well. If they played like this against a decent team they would have taken a beating. How many posts did they hit? The puck was just lying around the crease (most of the night) with 'Flipper' , our resident shot blocker who never stays on his feet, pulling out some breakdancing moves.

    They hit three posts I believe.
    Carolina was playing their 3rd game in 4 nights, they played a very important game yesterday and landed in Mtl at 3am. I was expecting us to win.
    I didn't expect though for Carolina to get closed to 40 shots on net, or for us to have to block another 27.

    Carolina was hot and had won 4 in a row, it's not like we were playing Buffalo.
     
  15. Or just maybe Bournival and Beaulieu told the team about Lefebvre and they figured Therrien aint so bad after all :laugh:

    I suggest you look at what Kriss E wrote again, before thinking this victory was a great performance.

    ...and yeah, if Carey wasn't amazing this team loses another one.

    Pretty much. People will glance at the score and figure we outplayed them handily, when we didn't even come close.

    The Montreal area and the rest of this province might as well be two different countries. Montreal is basically being held hostage while its businesses, culture and standard of living suffer. Nothing good can be had from this dynamic. It's gotten pretty bad when the government won't even let you enjoy your sports in peace and quiet. Until this resolves itself we'll have to learn to live with this ****.

    The government doesnt have a **** ass say in how the habs, a private enterprise, manage their business. The "coach must be french" madness during Cunneyworth was orchestrated by the french hockey media who dont wanna have to deal with an anglophone coach for obvious reason. It caught on with some people and the politicians rode the band wagon all the way to the station. The government is hardly preventing anyone from enjoying their sport "in peace and quiet". The only reason the habs abide by that rule is because they've decided to submit themselves to it.

    As for Montréal, what you've said is true of any metropolis {Mod}. "The rest of the territory is dragging down the big city!!". Except that the big city is 100% dependent on that territory for its food and energy. Montréal being a french city in anglo North American context is hardly a bad thing. If anything, it drives tourism and businesses. It's pure cultural wealth.

    Maybe, but the gist of what he's saying comes from the less "toolish" referenced Associated Press article from NHL.com which starts out:

    She was a Liberal Minister, can't say that the liberals go out of their way to "protect the French language"... I'd like to see the reation if they'd hire a unilingual francophone to coach the leafs.
