And he keeps playing Gionta and keeps playing DD when they ought to be benched. He demoted Bourque in favour of Prust on the Pleks-Gionta line - that's got to be a demotion for Pleks, no?

We've been sputtering recently and it's a nice test to see Therrien's resolve and ability, so far we're rarely been out played but he needs to fix the PP, the Subban thing has been figured out.
Therrien needs to go back and watch some film on games that were played this season.

Ryder was dominant with Pleks and Gio.

Eller and Chuckie were playing great hockey with Prust creating space for them.

The Habs have come a long way with Bourque injured. There is no need to disrupt the chemistry that this team had by swapping lines right before the playoffs.

Sorry Bourque. You should be on the 4th line. Not because of the skill level. No, because of the chemistry between two very important lines for our offense.

I just hope that Therrien does not channel Carbo who did not even have the slightest idea what chemistry among linemates meant.
