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.
Yes, talent helps in scoring, but the coach is responsible for "positioning his chess pieces" with his system.
Without Therrien's system we would be more sloppy on defense and probably wouldn't be as well-positioned as we are now. Rumor had it that the Pittsburgh players were tired of that defensive system. I think we have guys who are more willing to play a two-way game.

Galchenyuk and Markov have quieted down a bit from their torrid start. Gallagher is till producing.
