Almost equally ridiculous is the almost universal praise for Rene Bourque. The guy has a few decent games after
mailing it in last season
and he's now higher on their totem poles than Erik Cole.
Sit back, chill, and lay off the energy drinks, kids. Water ultimately finds its mark and players like Cole, DD and Gionta will hit their individual strides. Probably sooner rather than later. The most that the real hockey people (the Canadien management) are going to do with the slow starters is to tweak their roles in fairly minor ways. They have this thing called "perspective". Look it up.
The whole team "mailed it in" with no coach. You lecture people about having patience and then rip on the guy for having a season where he only scored 18 goals instead of 27. Bourque has been the difference in a lot of our wins and has been a saving grace seeing as how Cole, Gionta and Pacioretty have been "mailing it in" as you would say.
