Nice to see one of Gauthier's more obvious mistakes has been corrected.

Just a matter of time before he starts to find the net......Really impressed with Galchenyuk against the Bruins and the way he set up play after play.....he deserves some PP time...Come on MT !!

picked up this thread on the 3rd page, I don't think it deserves to slide that far...

Once again tonight Michel Therrien explains the game/his decisions and we see him unfold as a totally different coach than he was during his first stint with the habs. I have never seen a habs head coach such in control, and so proactive with the management of details. He plays players a times of the game where logically they shouldn't play ... and of course he's going to burn himself doing that at one point, its inevitable ... but what comes out of it is a sense that everyone is just as important and they have to bring what they can bring to the table. Getting the most out of this hockey team, I believe.

tonight, last minute, prust-white-moen ... love it. I can't remember a coach being so casual about things like that. I wasn't a big deal, it was just the thing to do. its not arrogance, its pride. they didn't look for trouble, but they were damn ready for it. tip of the hat to MT.

Well, I agreed with Therrien's move at the time, even if it turned out wrong. Sure Perrault was the best, but even the best lose many faceoffs. And Lindsay wasn't bad at all. The point is, when Perrault lose a faceoffs, he becomes useless as he was horrible defensively. While Lindsay rarely lost a faceoffs "frankly" and was the tipe of player willing to throw himself in front of the shoorter is he was to lose one.

It was a good decision that turned bad
Couldn't disagree more. Bad decision, bad result. Lindsay was a winger, not a centre. Dumb move, no other way to interpret it. I held that against Therrien for years lol.

That said, very impressed with Therrien 2.0. I was very dubious about the hiring, still displeased with his previous work here, but he continues to impress me as the season goes on.

Was it not Linden and not Lindsay? I don't recall a Lindsay playing for us.

Because it's much easier to assess one man's performance in hockey than in most business; where everything happens behind closed doors.

Bill Lindsay. He was with Florida before we got him, via waivers I think. Left winger out to take the most important draw of the season when No Panic Yanic is sitting on the bench.

Let's just be glad that Therrien has clearly improved tactically since then! Credit where it's due.

Ever since Therrien back onto the scene, I've become a huge fan. Plus there's just something about him that I find sexy - maybe it's his eyes? Haha.. oh and yes, I am a female.

Time fo Therrien to continue doing what he`s done all year, and that`s play the best man for the job. He`s yet to do that regarding Goaltending, but that man is Peter Budaj.>>>> I realize he`s been hoping Price would get it together soon but it hasn`t happened , so it`s time for an extended rest......We need Budaj against the Flyers IMO......
One more point: Is MT saving Galchenyuk for next season ?? One of the hottest Habs of late and we hardly saw him out there earlier tonight ? not sure why MT didn`t reunite the Prust Galchenyuk Gallagher line going into the 3rd, what would he have to loose ?

Therrien's been playing grabass with his favourites all year - he's not going to change now.

We didnt complain because we were winning but Therrien's PP is built on Subban, otherwise it's one of the worst looking PPs I've seen on the Habs. He doesn't take advantage of Pacioretty's big body or Ryder's accurate shot whatsoever.

And he keeps playing Gionta and keeps playing DD when they ought to be benched. He demoted Bourque in favour of Prust on the Pleks-Gionta line - that's got to be a demotion for Pleks, no?

We've been sputtering recently and it's a nice test to see Therrien's resolve and ability, so far we're rarely been out played but he needs to fix the PP, the Subban thing has been figured out.

PP was great with Markov/Diaz... and is now solid too with Markov/Subban...

The bolded part is inaccurate. Prust started on that line to get something going on the first shift. Rest of the game it was Bourque. He looked like the Bourque of last year imo.

Therrien needs to go back and watch some film on games that were played this season.

Ryder was dominant with Pleks and Gio.

Eller and Chuckie were playing great hockey with Prust creating space for them.

The Habs have come a long way with Bourque injured. There is no need to disrupt the chemistry that this team had by swapping lines right before the playoffs.

Sorry Bourque. You should be on the 4th line. Not because of the skill level. No, because of the chemistry between two very important lines for our offense.

I just hope that Therrien does not channel Carbo who did not even have the slightest idea what chemistry among linemates meant.

You shouldn't post when drunk. That means you should never post.

It's far from being one of the worst PPs ever. That he keeps putting Gionta there is a headscratcher, no doubt but there's no need for ultra-negativity when the PP is Top5 in the league.

The only thing that irks me is that we haven't given Galchenyuk a shot to run the 2nd wave on the PP. Instead it's Desharnais who has (I believe) 5PPP this season... I don't see how Galchenyuk could do much worse. We've seen what Galchenyuk can do when he has space... I think they should give him a shot.

Yes.

Ryder is not quite the same since Bourque is back.

Ryder > Bourque... at least in terms of hand eye co-ordination.

That or the other guy that has 5PPP in much fewer PP minutes, M. Lars Eller. Eller has even less PP TOI/game than Galchenyuk (1:04 vs 0:38). And then you compared what these guys bring overall vs DD who has an average of 2:46 minutes on the PP per game...

Playing favorites and not being able to understand when momentum turns in the game are going to hurt us in the play-offs.

The decision to move Ryder down to the 3rd line baffled me. Ryder is our goal scoring leader and points leader. So Therrien thinks that its a great idea to move our best offensive player down to the third to make room for Bourque.

I expected that from Carbo. I am dismayed that Therrien took that route.

Why?

That's what next pre-season is for. We already know that the combination of Pleks, Gio and Ryder can score goals better than any other line or line combination.

Galchenyuk is more valuable to the team with Eller and Prust.
