That's what I was thinking as well because he started his second sentence saying "no, you never expect your coach to get fired..."

Do you guys think that he actually means that he is not surprised but just said that he is since he is on camera?

Haha I think he just started with the wrong cliche!

Has anyone seen the french movie Le Fils (the Son), I swear Eller looks just like one of the main characters!

But of course all Habs fans would rather assume the most dramatic one, that he was about to spill the beans, Gauthier gave him the look of death from a hole in the wall where he spies on players, and he was scared into the PC answer, haha.

Anyway, apparently I'm alone in this, seemed harmless to me.
your probably right.

Poor Eller. He just isn't use to saying the cliche answers like Cammy and Gionta. He actually said what everyone was thinking.

Gorges: "It doesn't matter whatever system is put in place, what matters is that players do what they have to do"... sounds like they were fed up with JM's stupid passive system

Not sure how you come to that conclusion with that quote... also, I'm not buying the idea the JM had lost the room. Seems to me that the players had showed up to play the last couple of games.

What I didn't like was how Gorges agreed that the system works... Even politically, that wasn't necessary. Does he really believe that? No it doesn't work, Josh. Hence why it's always a 1 goal game gamble or forced shootouts.

No, what it means is the players are the ones on the ice not performing, not the coach.

I'm pretty sure he thought the question was asked like "Were you expecting JM to get fired"

"No, etc"

THen realized his mistake lol

Looks at his head movement when he answers the initial "No, I wasn't really s...". He confirms that answer by moving his head left to right. When he changes his answer to "Yeah, I was surprised" he should be nodding his head up and down but he is still moving his head left to right (much more subtle but still visible).

I know this isn't a perfect method but given all indicators I am fairly confident he lied right there.

I was moving my head from left to nautical 65 degrees while replying. Maybe I will.
