Is this what people are running with? Can't wait to read what he masterminded for the next series. We beat a team that we were better than. Its that simple. If you want to give MT credit for that fine. He deserves it. But to act like he is a changed man and flipped a switch is ridiculous. Its almost as ridiculous as the Ovie/Gallagher thread.
We started the reg season in October and finished in April. That's a bout 6 months. The team that started in October is not the same team that finished in April. Not only did the make up of the team change but players that were here all season long had changes in their game.

Does DD ring a bell? Patches had a very slow start to his season. At the beginning of the season if you remember we had to scrounge around for d-men because of the injuries.

Since then the kinks have been worked out and we've added Weaver, Weise, Wanek ( I like alliteration). DD has found his game, patches woke up, Subban has returned to his Norris level. That gives Therrien room to adapt his system.

And I don't care how many times it will be repeated. This team earned 100 points during the season and 8 (if you listen to Bourque) during the playoffs. The man deserves credit NOT criticism.
