Danny Dubé (http://www.985sports.ca/) regarding Therrien's challenge to implement a new system within such a short time frame:

- A less elaborated offensive system: very straight forward, very linear. Charging the net, rebounds, deviation... Watch out for more groin injuries; Dubé even mentioned 15% more.

- Defensive system: cut the ice in two, defensive zone cover, overload type: only 1 guy on the opposite side, the 4 other guys jamming the short (in French: premier poteau = 1/3 of the rink's width) side. He likes this strategy because it should help our not so good (I agree with his evaluation) D squad.

Just to be clear: that's what he saw on the ice in Brossard; this is not his suggestions.
