Honestly, how can anyone know if Therrien's a good communicator or not? It's not like anyone of us is or has been in the locker room or training with him, etc.

Jacques Martin is horrible at press conferences, does that make him a bad communicator? Same goes for Pat Burns or Jacques Lemaire. Unless you've worked closely with someone, it's almost impossible to judge someone's skills that you don't interact with. Other than ice-time decisions and bench behavior, who knows how Therrien is... Prior to his stay in Montreal, Therrien was known as a good teacher and communicator. (And just like Julien, he was deemed the best coach from Quebec outside the NHL)
