Right now there shouldn't be many rookies on the team. Nobody new on defense and possibly a spot for one of Leblanc, Gallagher or Galchenyuk so your theory doesn't make much sense there. At most we'll see a few call-ups.

Another thing : Therrien was signed on a short term deal. You think he wants to risk his career by overseeing a team crash and burn? He's going to coach to win as well and I'm sure Bergevin agrees. Theres no worse place to coach a tanking team than Montreal - teams that pick top5 are always pathetic displays but here its a pathetic display with millions watching and the spotlight on your face.
There are no spots for rookies until the inevitable injuries happen. Don't worry, there will be plenty of call-ups this year. That's the tradition in Montreal.

Subban made the NHL when Markov was injured, and last year that allowed Emelin to play 1000 minutes.
Desharnais made the NHL when Gomez was injured.

I expect Therrien to give 100%.
