I agree that Therrien's attitude was quite ridiculous. Even if he didn't know it shouldn't have been called. Fact is it was a bad decision on P.K.'s part. There is a time for this big hit and he failed to recognize the bad timing. But there are so many bad decisions made by players during a game, including undisciplined ones, that Therrien's tough behavior towards Subban makes me wonder if he doesn't have his own agenda. He is certainly more leniant with some less deserving players.

On the positive side, Subban learned he needs to stop irritating the refs.
