Not to give him any praise, but Gauthier tried to assemble a team based on speed and puck control, but Martin never figured how to use it in a coherent and productive system.
This is what Therrien has been doing. He's not just benefiting from an improved team like you seem to imply.
Adding that kind of talent has to help. There's no way of denying it. An all-star like Markov, Sparkplug like Gallagher or high pick like Galchenyuk.
One thing to remember about Therrein's previous clubs...either the 2002 Habs or 2008 Pens, he never lasted another full season as they hit the wall at one point and he was fired.
