More of an indictment of the roster he has. When given lemons you make lemonade.

This is coaching, but to be fair, the head coach is not the primary responsible for special teams.

A team that has barely scored as many goals as its allowed despite getting world class goaltending. This with a lineup that is close to identical to the one iced last year.
As you said, this has been the issue before Therrien and mostly because of the Gainey reboot. With the roster we have, you can argue that it's the only way to play and make the playoffs. That is undeniably supported by Therrien's won/loss record.

The data is there. You can choose to ignore it if you wish but its very clear that MT is one of the worst coaches in the league. And this doesn't even begin to address the way he's called out his players in the press and benched our Norris winner while allowing lesser players to make mistakes and continue playing...
The effect of his ice management is a matter of opinion. Your points might be valid, but it doesn't mean the team would have a better record.
