That tells me Michel Therrien understood what White got into and although it was a mistake, it wasn't one that would earn him a bus ride to Hamilton, as some of you suggested last night.

Mistakes happen and young kids like White will learn from them. If you ship them out or send them to Hamilton, they won't learn squat. They need a coach to have confidence in them, and I believe Therrien has that in White.
White's not going anywhere, I don't think.

The kid plays a great style of hockey - he's just got to make smarter decisions. He'll learn that with some experience. Even if he only plays 10-15 games this year, learning with a player coach like Therrien and them figuring out a way to calm his emotions will be good.
