So we're starting a new trend where we fire a coach and hire a new one each year?

He didn't impress me in the playoffs, as is the norm with MT. He was outcoached on many instances, and his whiny little pressers didn't do much for the average person either.

Then again, we've seen MT here before, and I'm curious why anyone would think he would be different this time around?
That's pretty much it. It was a 48 game schedule, and I doubt the Habs finish 1st in a full season. MT got smoked in the playoffs. Thats when a coach has to have his thinking cap on. MT dropped his somewhere. A lot of teams have to deal with injuries. I hate using that as an excuse every damn year so it seems.

This thread is cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

You don't fire a coach that turned a 15th place team into a 2nd place team. He's coached 53 games, how about we give him a full season and see if he can do even better.

Better than waiting and wasting 6 years like Bob Gainey and finding out he sucked ass as a GM.

Therrien was pretty much our only option for coach at the time. Not like there were some good candidates. There was nobody else to hire but him. It's just my opinion, but I don't see this guy as an all that great of coach. MT has been around since 2000 with no cup, and thats with Crosby and Malkin.

I have the same doubts about him, and the whining this week really put me off, but realistically they won't be firing him this quick.

The way some of you guys think. You can't fire a coach for finishing first, and you can't fire a coach because he has a crappy team to work with.
Dude, this is a ridiculous thread. Not only for Roy but for suggesting to fire MT to begin with.

If for some weird reason we would want to replace MT, I would go for Boucher instead. But Roy? Come on. He's nothing special as a coach, aside from the fact that he's a big name and he's popular.

Lindy Ruff has never won a Cup, I guess that makes him a bad coach, right?

Better yet, next year lets take another one of those 2 games 6-1 beatings again and 4 games to 1 exit. Plus get our heads kicked in. A lot of times the regular season doesn't mean much. Its the playoffs that count. That is where the true colors show.

I like the fire Roy brings to the Habs. Don't worry MT will still be coaching the Habs next year. Besides we don't have the team to win a cup for atleast 2-3 more years if things go in the right direction. He might as well be the plug behind the bench for the time being. You guys give MT too much credit.

All Therrien haters must admit one thing: he did good job this year.

That's just silly.
Ya, you can doubt whether or not the Habs would have finished 1st. I seriously doubt you believed, if we go back to before the season, that this was a question you were gonna ask yourself come May.
How did MT get smoked? If Price doesn't crap the bed in game 1, we win. If the refs do their actual job in Game 4, we win. This series could have easily been 3-1 for us, and those aren't things Therrien had the power of changing.
Heck, even quite a few of the Sens players and coach said that we probably deserved a better fate and that Anderson was really the series changer.

You can hate having to use injuries as an excuse, but when you have 6 regulars out of your lineup, with a few more playing injured, you can expect to be affected.
And no, not every team has that many important players out. Here's the list:
http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/injuries/

Now you can argue that we got injured because we're not big enough, and that would make sense if the guys injured would be small, but that's not the case.

In any event, this was a great season. For whatever reason, we suffered major injuries during the POs and faced arguably the best goalie of the NHL this year, it had nothing to do with being out coached.

Our team had a great year. The bar was very low seeing how we finished 28th last year. Now we finished 2nd, so expectations will be higher next season. We'll see how we do.

Roy was interviewed for the job and they choose Therrien.

Bergevin has his team setup. He even waited months for Dudley to be available.
Given 24 players already signed, MB seems to be a GM looking for stable and patient improvement.

Expect two or three players in the line-up from the UFA market.
The rest will come from draft picks.

Dude, you don't even have arguments...

I'll make a bet with you. Next year, we will not lost 4 games to 1 with two blowouts.

Pretty sure Roy didn't want to be just a coach but also wanted some say as part of a GM. At least thats what the reports were.

This. Taking a team from 15th to 2nd isn't good enough apparently. I know we have high expectations but still.

So he went from genius during the season to fire-worthy with a shortened playoff?

I already said that Habs fans would still find some things/some players to criticize if we win the cup.
