I think it was more him punishing them than giving up on them.

Punishing them by trying not to win games. Brilliant.

Well, yeah. He made sure of that.

Childish 'take my ball and go home' mentality. I'm going to punish you all for presumably not trying by also not trying. Way to set the example, coach. Great way to lose the room. Only a matter of time.

Obviously, he benched a gamebreaker for 15 minutes.

What if P.K. scores ? The whole place goes on fire and we probably win. We weren't that far off that day.

Article (in French) on Subban/Therrien: http://www.lapresse.ca/debats/chroni...7_accueil_POS1

I don't always agree with Cantin, but I think he is right on that one: Therrien is playing with fire, and might get burned.

If Therrien wanted to make a real solid statement he should of played Subban 16 min(8 min and a 2 minute break) in the third.
And we might have won as well.
Therrien is a bad coach. And I cant stand that stupid oh-oh look on his face all game.

Jacques Martin doesn't need cute.

Therrien has become Martin.
That's something every coach says.

When is the last time you heard a coach say don't grind let's just dipsy doodle?



I have to laugh at people making a big deal out of this.

Go watch any coaches speech ever recorded on Youtube, I bet they all say...

-gotta be ready to work
-gotta win 1 on 1 battles(grind)
-gotta get pucks in deep
-gotta keep things simple
-gotta get pucks to the net
-gotta get traffic in front
-gotta finish our checks

In every NHL(or any advanced level) coach's speech you'll hear 3-5 of these every, single, time.

That's what Therrien's preaching.....seems only goes for the players only?

Bottom line he made sure they would lose,by not pulling the goalie.....
On top of that dressing 11 forwards, double shifting.

You're right 100% SouthernHab...

I listened to the new Sabres Gm last night(Murray),he said he likes UP TEMPO HOCKEY(attacking),does not believe in sitting back....He said why let the other team impose there will on you?????He wants to impose will on the other team and have them deal with it .....QUITE THE CONCEPT EH????

Martin and Therrien score 2.4 2.5 gals a game ,play trap down 3-1 is out of dated,like Disco.

I suppose you buy something every time a telemarketer calls your house or you see a commercial on TV?

What coaches/GM's say in press conferences and what happens on the ice are two different things.

If Buffalo tries to play a run and run game with that squad they'll get lit up like a Chsistmas tree.

We have the type of team to play run-and-gun though. Even PK, our best player (who isn't Price) is a run-and-gun type of guy. We don't have the type D to just sit back and pray that Price can handle the onslaught every game. When we had guys like Gill, Hammer, Gorges, Wiz, etc who are all defensive minded, it made more sense to play a more conservative game to win. This team isn't built for hard, defensive hockey.

We're talking 2015-16 for the Sabres.....but at least they won't bore the fans to death in the meantime.....right??? Bottom line Murray there GM don't believe in sitting back..He is going to take the attack to the other team.

Buffalo 's new GM said he DON'T BELIEVE in 5 year rebuilds,way too long...whoa eh???Yet Montreal suckers there fans since Bob Gainey with 5 year rebuild plans.


Buffalo will likely get 1-2 pick this year and next.
Most of this 2013- 2014 Sabres team will be traded for
excellent assets......Miller will fetch a randsom at deadline.
So would Moulson etc etc etc etc....They will have the parts to play the
attack first game.

No excuse for this 2013-2014 Habs team to be scoring 2.49 goals a game avg,on pace for 200-210 goals scored(Jacques Martin numbers).It's the coaching system.....because this same coach had this same team scoring 3.04 a game last year.In the words of Linday Ruff "It's a definition of a joke! A joke""It's a joke"

If you have an aspiration of getting on the road to winning a cup in Montreal,2.49 goals for a game is not anywhere CLOSE to what it's goona take...So what it this?other than making record profits at the gate.
We're not even on the right track....it's all a hoax...Fact is were closer to Buffalo than you might want to believe...keep watching.
