So now that we've all seen the speech instead of just a clip what's everyone's opinion?

I want Therrien gone as much as the next person but I don't have a problem with his "we are a grinding team" speech. To me it's pretty clear he wants the team to drive to the net more instead of sticking to the perimeter and trying to make fancy plays. He's absolutely correct to believe we will have more success doing that. Hell it's been the biggest complaint about Pacioretty, Desharnais, Bourque so far this season.

It's also worth noting that earlier in the episode he said that "We are a passing team", so I'm thinking he uses the "We are a X team" when he wants the team to work harder at doing X rather than it being an evaluation of the teams identity.
