Benoit Pouliot: "happy to be out of there"

http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/338336.html

Quote:
L'attaquant des Bruins a été encore plus cinglant en déclarant qu'il avait vu venir la déconfiture de la dernière saison du Canadien. "Il était temps que je parte de là. J'aime bien les gars à Montréal, mais la chimie est tellement meilleure ici à Boston. L'attitude, l'approche d'un match et l'ambiance dans le vestiaire sont bien différentes de ce que j'étais habitué à Montréal."
Basically he is saying, I saw this (the bad season) coming from a mile away, and I'm glad I'm out of there. I like the guys in Montreal but the locker room atmosphere is a lot better (Note: isn't it obvious from a Stanley Cup Champs team....?). The attitude, game preparation are also quite different from Montreal.

I will make two comments about this. One: a guy with a 32 points season should **** when he does 2 points more than here. Second, I'm worried since this comment mirrors a little what Cammy said. I feel like there is a real problem at the heart of this team right now

Did we not already hear about this a month or 2 ago? Who cares what BenPoo thinks. He should concentrate on his skating.

There was absolutely 0 leadership coming from the top of the organization. It's been run like a circus from the top down for years.

I don't have much respect for ex-players blasting their previous team (By the way, Pouliot blasted Martin, too)... Pouliot is darn lucky to be in the NHL, still, and with the SC winners on top of that.... No wonder the atmosphere is soooo good.

Next GM and coach have a big cleaning job to do in that locker room. Let's find the real leaders, and let's solve some "problems".

I hate what kind of culture the organisation brought within the team. Not sure exactly what's wrong, but it has hurt us deeply in the past few years.

This being said, Pouliot sucks.

Jacque Martin, Bob Gainey and PG we're all incredibly good communicator don't go further.

And anyway, Benoit Pouliot is a lazy talented punk ... WTF is he talking about.. He could be a 50-60 point guy but he's one of the laziest kid i've seen. People like him don't help chemistry.

Now we got Plek, Gorges and Price as our core from last season are they the problem ? I don't think so. (Notice I didn't talk about P.K, )

With people such as Savard in the mix this organization will go from 45 degree incline to a straight vertical line. Doesnt mean we will win the cup. Just that the drama's over. (All those injury excluded.)

Pouliott may be an idiot but there sure are a lot of former players telling us that we've been running things poorly for a while now.

House cleaning couldn't have come at a better time.

I liked Pouliot when he was here and sometimes the guy could turn on the magic and just control the game. I always wanted to see him get more time on the top lines but honestly it was just boneheaded play after boneheaded play, not to mention the falling down.

Obviously there is/was a problem in the locker room, that tends to happen when your season is going down the drain and management is making tough decisions. I have trouble taking guys like Pouliot or Cammy seriously when they are traded and turn around to take shots. Fringe player and a floater, neither helping leadership in any way but they don't mind taking a shot when they are dumped.

While I think that Pouliot is a giant d-bag. He isnt wrong. Maybe with a new GM this team will finally find themselves a real leader.

Was. Was a real problem at the heart of this team........and they are gone........Martin and Gauthier.

A lot of damage was done to this team and organization by those two clowns. And it will take effective management and strong coaching to erase that damage.

And I will remain positive that we are on the right track to fix that problem. A lot at stake Geoff Molson.........the reputation of the Montreal Canadiens franchise.

I have a feeling some of the "problems" in the locker room are caused by players like Cammalleri and Pouliot. Those are the type of rats that take shots once they leave town.

That's the difference having a former legend like Neely behind the scenes, and the idiots running the circus here. Bring back some of the legendary players to help solidify the organization. Who do you want giving you advice, Patrick Roy or some putz who has never played the game or been in your shoes?

I don't recall Koivu saying anything bad about the organization after leaving and I value his word over a plug like Pouliot anyday.

Remind me is Gainey a former legend? Hard to imagine we could have found a bigger idiot.

Leafs fan here.

After I saw him sign with Boston in the offseason, I lost a lot of respect for this guy. (Just like I lost a bunch of respect for Talbot signing in Phili) I know it's a business but still, just my two cents.

In Toronto, we have had the same rumours of "locker room problems".

Isn't it funny that the hard working players like Cole, Gorges, Subban, Pacioretty, Price, love Montreal but the borderline mental case guys like Cammy and Pouliot whine away. Gill who we all knew as a leader never whined after being traded.
