PK Subban to Chicago , will know it's for real then eh?
He doesn't hate Subban. That I know. He HATES showboating for sure, and HATES guys who aren't committed. But he doesn't hate Subban. Who can really hate the best athlete of the team?

I can just imagine the texting that went crazy between the players. I suspect Markov got the bulk of it.
I been sayin it since this broke last night....

The players was sayin right in media they hated JM style , and Randy style ....then Bergy hire bck Jacques Martin...it's honestly the biggest FUP i seen ,he obviously doesn't understand the sediment in the room.Wait till he walk in and show him the old

It's not about the system, Habaneros. It's about player-coach relationship. I'm not so sure that Therrien had a good relationship with his players. Michel Therrien has a pretty agressive system in mind, I'm pretty sure. In fact, I'm certain that Bergevin-Mellanby want an agressive minded coach.

It,s more HR that I'm afraid of. I've always thought Therrien was a hot-headed dude, who gets under players' skin.

Not to long before he became coach, he was spouting off how he'd straighten out Subban......
You better get ready for some bigtime sparks, cause the one's we seen between Martin and Subban and Randy L on the bench with Subban is nothing compared to what goona take place....and i got a bad feeling .


Quote:
He had praise for P.K. Subban, a player whom Therrien, in his role as RDS hockey analyst, had occasion to criticize during the past season.

“Subban is a thoroughbred, and you need thoroughbreds to win races,” Therrien said.

He added that one of his challenges will be developing Subban’s talent and leadership qualities.

I don't understand hiring a guy who isn't well liked around the league...especially when you're trying so hard to shed your negative image to the hockey world. This hire makes no sense to me.

I'm going to support Therrien, and the team, but I don't see a middle ground here. Either the team ends up really producing with him or it becomes a disaster and we see the destruction of our young core.

He just singled out Subban on L'Antichambre as one of the most talented players on the team and one of the guys he can't wait to work with.

Martin never blew a fuse against Subban publicly. Randy did. Well, PK probably needs to be groomed. No doubt.

Subban doesn't worry me. The vets do, though. Ouch. Not convinced.

I didnt knew it was that bad either.
And that precise point cannot be said too many times. In fact, it should be enough to discredit the coach for about any job in the NHL. Yet, some people are ready to give him a 3rd chance.

So here it goes again, Therrien had worse puck possession numbers when he coached a team with Crosby and Malkin (and Staal+Gonchar), than Carbo does with an average team.

Lets think about that fact, for a moment.

If you're seriously thinking that hiring that coach can be a good idea, then, you clearly have a problem in what your idea of the game is.

Does anyone know where i can buy some cyanide for cheap ?

Why the Canadiens should keep P.K. Subban


http://sports.nationalpost.com/2012/...ep-p-k-subban/

Quote:
By Mike Boone

Let’s make it really simple for Montreal Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier as he pauses on his way to the Help Wanted ads to parse this advice column over his herbal tea and vegan muffins:

Don’t. Trade. P.K.

Don’t even think about it.

Quote:
On RDS’s L’Antichambre, P.K. is roasted on a nightly basis for sins real and, in the case of Denis Gauthier, imagined.

During a recent telecast, Denis Gauthier — quoting unnamed sources close to the team — said Subban is habitually late for meetings.

And, the former NHL defenceman added, “if there are five team rules, he’ll break seven.”

Quote:
Is Subban easy to coach?

No.

Jacques Martin made him a healthy scratch for three straight early December games last season.

Randy Cunneyworth had P.K. (and Lars Eller) in the Winnipeg press box for a 4-0 loss three days before Christmas.

I cannot stress enough the importance of assistant coaches when hiring a guy like Therrien. MT will bring the emotion, now we need some solid "x and o" kind of guys who the players can use a a bridge to the coach.

Basically, I want another Kirk Muller type to help MT along.

BTW, is there confirmation that the deal is only 2 years? I dont like the coach, but I think MT's act can work well in a short term scenario. Of course, the danger is that he does too well, and gets an extension.

We didn't hire him....Bergevin did. So our GM has no idea what the game is all about. Great. Let's hire Gauthier back and hire Cunneyworth who cleary had more ideas in his sleeves.

As far as Pittsburgh is concerned, it might have to do with Crosby and Malkin being at the start of their career, Therrien getting the very first 2 years of Malkin in the process. Yet, Crosby best offensive season came under Therrien. And let's forget that Therrien 2nd season, he only had Crosby for 53 games. And it's surely because Therrien is not the best coach in the world, yet, we didn't have access to everybody. We should have went with Hartley but we didn't. Or Roy....or convince Lemaire but we didn't.

Well, I hope you don't condone Subban's behaviour if those cases are true. I would have fired him on the spot if he were an employee. And I've been managing employees for along time. You don't act like you own the room. It creates a different set of rules for him. And in hockey (just like football), rules are made to be followed by everybody. Stars included. It's the nature of the game.

If Subban earns it, he needs to do it. If not, players will know who's the boss: Not the coach.

I agree. His assistants will be a testament to his supposed 'changed' mentality.

could you imagine Jacques Martin telling Bobby Orr not to make end to end rushes...and try to turn Orr into a solid defensive d man ...
He would,yes sir boy Bobby Orr in the press box . .


Well I don't know what Mr Therrien got planned , but as he says he does have something in store for PKSUbban.Let's be honest PK is a generational talent, these coaches are 2-3 years and gone ,there that bad.....DON'T FUP PKSUBBAN over lousy coaches...

“If that happens,” he said, “I’ve got 29 teams I can play for.”

http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...#ixzz1wy89go1H

Awesome. He's already alienated players who aren't even on the team. This is going to be a difficult 2 years until he gets fired for a real coach. So disappointed. FML.
Doesn't surprise me. Hate hearing stuff like this, but what can you do..

As of right now, I absolutely hate this hire. Hopefully I'm proven wrong.
