Michel Therrien knows more about hockey than you do.

My main point of this thread is to damper the obsessive blame/hate/disgust towards just one man. I'm no fan of this 'grinding' system either.... and yes I sometimes long for the structure they played last year.... BUT REMEMBER they faltered before that grueling 48 game schedule was done with.
I started a thread a couple months back still supporting Therrien, citing that beautiful opening round series in 2002 vs the Bruins. Therrien coaching a team on the tail-end of the 'Dark-Age''. Yeah, the game was different then. Therrien didn't do us any favors in the end with the Hurricanes series either... yeah, yeah, I know.
Still, you think you know more about the game of hockey than Michel Therrien does? Give me a bloody break.
In my opinion there is a stark difference between having more access and knowledge. I'm pretty confident there are a few people around here, given the same access to the game Therrien has they would do a better job. Also, it doesn't take much effort to understand how to run a practice. Now obviously experience is important but it doesn't always trump intellect.
