Agreed. It's important for coaches to stand up for their players when they get bad calls. The players feel better about themselves, and the coach may even get the officials to reverse the call. It also keeps players focused on the game. Therrien was the master of this.

I think the ref waived off a goal against the Canes with a quick whistle and what you see is Skinner's reaction afterwards.

Jmac just got surrounded, cornered, beat up and robbed

Another great game by Cole. While he definitely deserves more points than he currently has, did anyone expect him to make a presence every shift like he has been doing? His mix of speed and strength is something to be admired.

Frankly, I'm just surprised he can get over the boards without Staal's help.

When coaches lose it sometimes, there's a reason for that! It''s called tactics & managing human beings is the best tactics of all, JM doesn't have that ability.

Definitely. And Therrien did it best, IMO.

Or rather:

15.10.2011 Grigorenko!

25.10.2011 Grigorenko?

4.11.2011 No Grigorenko!

Because we never sucked enough to get Yakupov in the first place... at worst we would have gotten Grigorenko.

Also, showing emotions (or character) behind the bench isn't always good. Players need to feel the coach is in control, otherwise, they lose it themselves and it never gives good results.

Still, I'm not a Jacques Martin fan at all. I don't think he's the kind of coach this team needs. But not for the reasons you bring here.
see the like/dislike poll thread. I dont need to prove anything now go out and stop looking for arguments its a friday night...I assume this is what you and bIll do on your weekends?..sheesh, go out or something

They did, especially in the first.

That might works well on short terms. But still, some players will like it, others won't.

It doesn't matter what is your tactic as a coach. What matters, is how you stick to it and show to your player that you know where you are going.

And what is even more important, and that concerns the GM, is to actually assemble a team in some way that the identity will suit well with the coach. That's the part where I still have some doubts.

Believe it or not I said that we'd win the next five in a row and then see several "Feels like '93 threads on here."

One more to go...

Get back to me when you understand the concept of a discussion board.

If you're going to make baseless accusations, prepare to 'discuss' them. Also, stop letting strangers on the internet ruin your life.

Just finished watching the game. Habs looked great in the first 2 periods, let Ottawa in it in the 3rd though, I really wanted PK benched after that Ottawa goal but he made some nice defensive plays after that, I forgave him a little.

I don't want to be one of those guys, but sometimes I wish Gorges or Plekanec were the captains, I know I don't know what goes on in the dressing room, but I'd love to see a captain that leaves it all on the ice and I'm not finding anything inspiring about Gionta this season.

I only watch the 3rd period. And it's horrible. It's like men play with kids. We do nothing else than dumping the puck.

At least, Cole seems working hard.

Well, you missed the two other periods where the Habs played very well.
2-0 lead going into the last period playing the team that has the most 3rd period goals, you thought the Sens were going to sit back? They have come back from deficits in the 3rd many times already this year.
We didn't sit back, we weathered the storm that was obviously coming. After five days off, you should be applauding them, not calling them kids.
