Roy has done well in Colorado, I'll give you that. But I could paint Roy with the same brush that many Habs are painting Therrien: the team may be winning not because of Roy but because of the talent:

Duchene, Landeskog, MacKinnon, McGinn, O'Reilly, Stastny, Tanguay. and a goalie that has played as well as Price.

Can the Habs put up top 7 forwards that match that? I don't think so. We do have a better d.

Honestly, if coaches were switched, I don't think there would be much of a difference in the teams' results.

Therrien is really underrated on this site. He isn't great but he has proven in Pittsburgh and here that he is a very good coach and you don't know how much it hurts me to admit that..
