These aren't the guys on average get their icetime increased to get the team back into the game by the coach. Guys like Gallagher, Plekanec, Pacioretty, Markov are obvious choices to increase icetime in times of needing offense.

Players that do get an icetime boost while they're losing?
Boullion (
Gionta (
Desharnais (
If this is not reason enough to fire this clown I don't know what is. Therrien should be ashamed of himself, and MB for hiring him.

Forward this to MB's inbox stat.
