In other words:

" No, I don't think I screwed him up too badly "


washing his hands.

I always liked him, he coached like he played and I would of loved to see him with a team different than the one he had, hence, his coaching this season.

If anything, Gainey wanted him to play sooner, not Carbo.

What the hell are you talking about? Price has only himself to blame... what did Carbonneau ever do to hurt Price's potential, overplay him?

hmm, make rookie mistakes behind the bench which inadvertently effects the teams ability to protect Price. Besides the fact that they were always out-shot too.

JM will coach with a system in place that should be by far superior for progressing Price's development.

Most coaches are class acts - otherwise they don't get TV gigs or rehired by other teams.

Ridiculing and demoralizing your players game after game is not real classy.

I much prefer the JM approach of keep your mouth shut unless things are good - want to call out someone - deal with it outside of the media.

A no brainer given that this is Montreal.. Carbo lost his team before he lost his job.

"We had a good season in my first year, and I'm sure they didn't spend every night in their apartment sleeping at nine o'clock at night," he said.

"At the end of the day, they're adults," he said at another point. "They're allowed to go to war, the drinking age is 18 … there's not much you can do. You can watch them, you can have curfews, and we did."
Spoken in all honesty like a former player would.

Lefleur said it best when he said, if they had digital cameras and facebook in my era, everyone would of been traded out of the city and we would not have looked so good for things we did off the ice.

Thanks for the lesson I'll keep that in mind.

Carbo's coaching had some gigantic holes in important spots (match-ups, icetime bench management) but they shouldn't preclude him from becoming a fantastic commentator. He does undestand the game very well.

I wonder if we'll see that perspective brought up in the Canadiens media. After all, it's not something that shouts "CRISIS!" or "PRICE AND THE PRESSURE - CAN HE HANDLE IT?" (read between the words... he won't be able to...)

The point of view presented by Carbonneau is exactly the one I have held for a while...

By the way, it's the same I hold for SKost. He's young and very talented and, if he himself can get by the demotion and learn from it, he could be nurtured & guided to become an important contributor to our team.

Or maybe nobodys to blame and this is just part of the development curve of young goalies. Maybe I am in left field though.

True. It's not like he's been traded or something. Although when it comes to expectations, I'd say the organization definitely hung Price out to dry

I loved the Carbonneau signing and hated the way he was shown the door. I thought he did an awesome job with this team and even though he made a few mistakes, he was a great coach. The only thing i did not like is that he let his players be bullied. The other teams were taking advantage of it and his phylosophy on it is to make the other team pay on the power plays given to them after being abused...

Well there is just so much abuse someone can take and it hurts a lot less when you give a hit then when you take one. In hockey, you should not always turn the other cheek and that was what he was preaching. It started with Lucic and went to hell after that. I would have liked if, as a team, he asked the players to defend each other more and even be the instigators.
