I'm not suggesting this is a Stanely Cup calibre roster and nowhere did I suggest it was.

But we shouldn't be at the bottom in terms of offense either. And we shouldn't be getting outplayed every night the way we are and letting our goalies save our ass.

Most coaches don't have a goalie as good as Carey Price.

Tell me what it is.

We're outplayed, outchanced, our younger players are regressing, our Norris winner is called out all the time, near the bottom in scoring, our PP (which should be absolutely awesome) has sunk like a stone, he's playing favorites with lesser players and calling out players in the press.

The ONLY thing going for us is our place in the standings and that's largely due to our goalie.

Now, as we all know how much emotion can make us see things in a biased way (i.e., make reason the slave of passion"), having gotten rid of some of your hate, I would like to know what things you think Therrien has done well.
You tell me. What should we praise him for? 'Cause the only thing we have going for us is goaltending and he has nothing to do with that.

And surely to God if it's as easy as you say, wouldn't someone surrounding Therrien mention something: "Hey, why don't we try playing with the puck more and, uh, put the PP back the way it was when it was producing". Or are they all just idiots?
Why did Bouillion play on the PP? Why does one line get all the PP opps and doesn't produce? Why does he start our supposed shut down defenseman in the offensive zone all the time? YOU explain it because I can't.

We're where we are in the standings because of Vezina caliber goaltending... that's it.
