Ryan White is the only Canadien averaging fewer than 10 minutes, and he's close (9:51). Only Nashville, Ottawa and Pittsburgh can also say they've got just one player below double-digit minutes.

One of the reasons the Canadiens are better is the players realized they used too many built-in excuses during last year's organizational craziness. Brian Gionta: "The new thing was making sure that everybody's mindset coming to the rink everyday was you weren't dragging, you weren't down." Josh Gorges: "Whatever the system was going to be, whatever the coach put in front of us, we had a group that said, 'We're going to listen, and we're going to buy in.'"

So... Therrien shouldn't have that much credit, since the players were ready to accept anything at this point?
