I have it on good authority, (friend of shaws brother)
that he is much happier with CJ over MT. He said MT never spoke to him in the locker room, said little and he(shaw) was never sure what MT wanted.

Said the locker room is a much better place under CJ over MT, even when they were winning under MT, its still vastly improved.
Said MT treated alot of players like bags of poop.

Which for me, was always the biggest knock on Therrien...not necessarily his coaching tactics, but just the way he treated players on a personal level.

Like Steve Begin, timing is everything. He took some bad penalties, undisciplined things, and offensive zone stuff, at very critical junctures in games. Those happened, we didn't imagine them.

Its one thing if late in a game you hook a guy to stop a scoring chance. Its another to take a dumb one in the offensive zone/neutral zone, and nowhere near the puck. One that comes to mind was when he was skating to the bench, and he just had to stop and body check a guy on the other team. The guy didn't have the puck and was just skating to his own bench. That's dumb and undisciplined. I'm glad he's not doing that anymore.

He's been terrific lately.

Easily one of the best Habs forwards.

Sounds good! If we can get him...if price is right! (from the little I know about him...he's a good one).

And, I was just having fun (as I'm sure you know!)...I really meant another actual Andrew Shaw! Adding a leftie Shaw (leftie twin brother if he has one?!!) would be a nice bonus for our LEFT side during the playoffs...in case (for example) someone like Pacioretty doesn't deliver...LEFTIE-Shaw to the rescue!, or...a leftie-Shaw for the 3rd or 2nd or 1st line...RIGHTIE-Shaw for our top 6-9...he did it with Chicago (playoffs)...and he could do it again with Mtl. I'll be shocked if he disappears during playoffs...it'll be the first time I see that from him if it happens. (It won't since he lives for playoffs...some have it...some don't... and Shaw definitely has the ''it'' factor for playoffs).

Just wondering...how many here are counting on Shaw for playoffs?
(and if not...which forwards are you guys counting on?).

To me...Shaw (3 CUPS) is our main playoff captain/leader/forward...he has been there (BIG SHOW/real season) more than any other Hab player, yet he's still pretty young. So much playoff experience and lots of winning/success (at a young age). Habs need more of these type of players/playoff winners to end the miserable 0 since 1993 CUP drought.

After Shaw I'm looking at King (2 CUPS) as leader of the 3rd-4th lines (2nd liner in case of many injuries)...and then Radulov (strong playoff pts history) for the top 6...and then there's Danault, Mitchell (warrior/leader for the 4th line), Byron (speed-demon/heart/PK weapon). We don't have many playoff warrior forwards (I hope I'm so wrong on this!), so we should be loyal to the few proven ones we have (ex: Shaw, King).


Cheers!

Go Shaw Go!!
Go King Go!!

Seems like most players who left/got traded from the habs says the same thing
I remember Bourque, Parenteau, DSP, etc. saying something like that

He's maybe not that similar to Shaw, but Killorn would be such a great add.

Shaw as RW...check.
Shaw as CENTER...check.

He did it with Chicago (3 CUPS)...he can do it with Mtl.

We're lucky Bergevin got Shaw and Danault from Chicago.
(all for two 2nd rnd picks and Weise-UFA+Fleischmann-UFA... good deal).

Andrew Shaw has two Stanley Cups with Chicago, not three. He was drafted in 2011.

Shaw is playing as 3rd line center tonight it appears. Galchenyuk on the left and Lehkonen on the right. Interested to see if Shaw can hold that position for a few games and be effective at face offs.

You can even tell in chuckys presser yesterday, his tone and body language appeared different then the last time he got moved to wing. CJ is like one of the boys, want's them to succeed and helps then do it. Not gloat about how far along he's come, and then not speak to him the whole season.

Definitely no coincidence guys like Shaw are giving that extra little bit, doesn't go unnoticed.

Yes, because Chucky and Lehkonen are our best wingers...

Thanks for that...was waiting for the correction since I myself wasn't 100% sure if it was 2 or 3! Cheers.

Hopefully he wins a 3rd and it's with our Habs!

p.s.: to those joking (or not?!) about Shaw being our no. 1 center...he just might go on to be our best center (or winger) in playoffs 'cause he is the most proven playoff forward/center we have (honorable mention: Radulov has a lot of playoff pts and King has 2 cups). I've watched him a plenty (in playoffs) when he was a Hawk...and he was a mix of a top 6 and bottom 6 playoff forward. He can grind the corners, go to the net, score, pass, give you full effort/heart for every playoff game.

We're lucky Bergevin found a way to get both Shaw and Danault from the Hawks...two major playoff warriors! (well...Danault is still unproven in playoffs but has playoff warrior potential, imo, I hope so!).

Yeah, can't wait until playoff warrior Shaw is our number one in the playoffs. Then we'll REALLY be able to score.

Definitely worth a pair of second round draft picks.

I'd probably rather have Eller + Abramov + Dahlen than Shaw + whoever's available at damn near the 3rd round this year + whoever's available at damn near the 3rd round next year.

So if this is true - which wouldn't surprise me in the least - what in the world would possess the GM to, not only extend, but double down on a toxic influence like this. What's worse, to team up with and take advice from on how to run this club! To allow this relic of a bygone era of coaching to have a say on who to keep and who to ship off. It boggles the mind!

It leads me to believe only one thing: the GM and the former coach were of the same mind on most issues and it was only when things became untenable that the GM chose to make a change; in no small part, I'd reckon, because his own fat was hanging a little too close the fire.

What is rumoured to have happened in the locker room between the former coach and Shaw is deplorable , but it probably means that our former coach will never get another chance behind an NHL bench. It also speaks to the leadership at the top.

I think you're probably correct, and if so, it raises another question. If Bergevin is of a like mind to Therrien on how a coach should interact with his players, how many other brutes are handling the development of our prospects?

Without question. He's been our best all around forward the last three weeks and keeps ramping up his game. You never have to worry about the effort given with the kid.

I think in general Therrien may be a limited communicator, not even just in a social sense.

In Shaw's case in particular, it doesn't sound as if Therrien was capable of giving discipline which Shaw could take seriously (which isn't just Therrien's problem of course, but his job is to overcome Shaw's flaws).
