Hold on "Johnny Quest" ....

game ain't over yet .... if it meant BOURQUE being in - then it has worked, so far (agree that Gallagher needed a game and Galy needed to be in as well - COLBY could have sat? another option?

Now, as a coach, if you want to punish somebody, the only right player to punish is THAT guy. If you punish the wrong guy, say somebody that doesn't have results but works real hard anyway, then the players aren't gonna react well. If you punish the right guy, then your team will really respect the fact that, as a coach, you see things as they do.

My guess is that Therrien hit the nail on the head, and the guys agree with him that Eller deserved the press box tonight.
