Kudos to you both, guys.

It's pretty frustrating to see prominent posters flaunt their complete lack of hockey know-how. Like the ones picking apart every goal against Price, the incessant ignorance when it comes to tactics I cannot deal with.

Therrien's defensive system allows for Bouillon to look good because he is agile but in fact sucks principally because we cannot actually defend zones and don't have the physicality to remove players from the play entirely. Bouillon isn't as bad as I was raging about but he's a 6th-dman AT BEST.

And that is why I don't trust in Bergevin. His coach is loose and juvenile when it comes to defense, his PK sucks and his taste in players is biased and poor. You can all claim that he's waiting for prospects to bloom but I see another Bob Gainey who'll spoil another batch of talented young players.
I see Bergevin and Gainey as different as black and white.
