Cry for attention, what a joke (BTW huge Leaf fan and hate the habs, so it isn't like I enjoy defending their players)
Got it. The goal is to troll.

Myself, Marc Bergevin and Michel Therrien have a ridiculous opinion. Ignorant too.

Between this story, the Yakupov "excessive" celebration, and other such drivel, it seems that many people involved with hockey play with one stick and have a second one stuck up their a**.

I see you haven't watched Leo Komarov yet.

And yes, the 3 or you have a ridiculous opinion on the subject that is very ignorant. What exactly about any 3 of you proves that those 2 things cannot be true? Ignorance rarely comes from a large sample size of people from across 2 large countries with differing views and opinions, but rather a small group (oh say 3) like minded people.

What a Buzz Killington.

What next?? Players not allowed to smile?? Or them not being allowed to high five the other guys on their bench after scoring?

Treatment like this is why players don't like being with certain teams and demand trades. It's the little things.

What a joke.
Yea right, every time they have brash cocky players like Lapierre, Ribeiro, Subban and sometime Price people crap on them and when they want to turn it around and have a more respectful team, people crap on them for that too? Decide wich is wich people.

For one thing outsiders have no idea of the context in Montreal, it's easy for players to think they are superstars when they're not.

Exactly.

Personaly I like to see it but i'm a selfish fan who only wants to be entertained. I'm not the one trying to create a team concept trying to win games. Coach has to do what he must.

NFL stopped all these types of celebrations. Shows how much you know.

But I think the problem here that it got out! I don't know wich of PK or Price said that MT would not allow it but this is the type of thing that should be kept private.

See what MT says then
I'm pretty sure the players approves this move by Therrien, they couldn't stand PK's antics.

I don't have an issue with it. He wants them to celebrate as a team instead of having a couple of players doing an individual gimmick choreographed celebration at the end of games.

I hate the dances they do in the NFL. I think players do that because they are just looking for extra attention. I hope those kind of celebrations never happen in hockey.

I'm sure that whole saluting the crowd on center ice thing is a gimmick to some old school guys. Don't bring that European crap over here!

I'm not going to wade through this thread, but it was a moronic decision by Therrien, and hiring Therrien in the first place was an even worse decision.

That's like kids in school being upset that the cool kids play together. I never knew there were so many babies in NHL locker rooms.

I don't really understand it.

Who is to say this Triple-Low-Five wouldn't become yet another in a long line of epic Habs traditions?

You're never going to get new traditions if you forbid everything that isn't already 'traditional'.

Nor does it strike me as a particularly 'self-centered' act. It's not avoiding other teammates or anything. It's just a special little thing that 2 of a team's franchise players do when they win. Whatever. Do other teams ban stuff like a certain guy in the hall before a game psyching up their starting goaltender? No...because it's asinine to fret about this stuff.

And basically, it's just something that adds a bit of fun, excitement, and a unique 'culture' for the fans of a very enthusiastic fanbase.


The whole thing just comes off as a preemptive strike by Therrien against Subban in trying to create a bland, cookie-cutter team. It's a power-trip, and it's incredibly stupid and a trivial thing for the coach to involve himself in.

Pretty much.

This sort of stuff is so outside the realm of a coaches reasonable jurisdiction.

You are my pawns my players, and you shall do exactly as i please!!! Now go forth, and do my bidding (without celebrating in ways i don't like).



If it was honestly an issue...it's something the Captain and leadership group should address. Nevermind the fact that guys like Subban and Price are a big part of the core and leadership of that team going forward...

Saluting fans together only because you've told to do so. And banning everything else. That's awkward, artifical, sickening, dictatorial and so on. It's very nice when it's natural, but this.. Disgusting.

I'm expecting Budaj to get some more starts while the blabbermouth repents on the bench.

THE WISERHOOD! I remember those, I was always angry that they never showed how drinking whiskey really goes...I mean those guys should really be fighting each other for no good kind of reason at all, if you're being realistic.
