This is embarrassing. Therrien should worry about making the playoffs, not about 2 guys doing a fun little low-5 after wins.

Talk about buzz kill for those two drunk Montreal fans in the bar doing the same thing at the end of every game...

EDIT: I misread the article.

Even though I disagree with it, I could see why he would not allow it

I didn't think it was possible for me to hate the Habs organization more, but sure enough there it is.

What a joke.

Guy says in public how upset he is about the new CBA and thinks about retirement because he doesnt like it and they say nothing to him.

Guy likes to celebrate with his best friend on the team and they step in.

What a world.

I think anyone with celly abilities should go to EDM. Yak is already there, send PK, send Anisimov, bring back Avery, Ovi. Just make that whole team one big celly.

Subban can drive me nuts, but really? This is just a crazy coach with a ridiculous concept. Therrien isn't new to stuff like this. In 2008-'09 he had a great team on the verge of winning and through the first half of the season with the Pens and he stifled that otherwise talented team so badly. He didn't let Crosby or Malkin do their thing out there and with players like that, you let them do their thing. He was fired, Bylsma stepped near the trade deadline and they won the Cup because he let his stars be his stars. Thank goodness Therrien can speak french or else he'd be unemployed right now and the only NHL team that would want him wouldn't even look at him twice.

And that stupid stick wave at the end is really mind numbing. The owners are billionaires. The players are multi millionaires. We get it, you want to bend over backwards to "appreciate" us. Sorry, I hate those celebrations they are the phoniest thing in hockey. Let a guy like Subban and Price do their thing, the fans identify with that better than a forced stick wave. You think the players want to do that? No, and why should they? The ice surface is their sanctuary.

just gonna copy/paste my post from the other thread



This is just emberassing. This "we're a team" mantra is so exaggerated, it isn't even funny. It was already on display on Yakupov's celebration and again here. If Yak's or Price and Subban's teammates really feel offended by the celebration or the "triple low-five", then they are the most selfish and immature people to ever play in the NHL. My guess is though that actual NHL players don't mind that. Seriously, no one in their right minds would dislike players on their on teams because of minor traditions or incidents like that. It's just the fans that still live in the pre-WW2 age that still believe in some kind of "code". I also think that hockey fans often like to think of their game as the "true" team sport, so they emphasize the team thought to an absurd level (like celebrating with your teammates 5 seconds later than usual).

That last quote by Therrien is also gold. He says the fans deserve it, and yet takes away something that most of them loved to see.

I do, and I'm a Bruins fan.

I enjoyed seeing Price and Subban's celebration and I think MT's reasoning is shoddy. Show me any fan that saw that celly and thought, "Why can't they involve the team?".

Wow...Why is the NHL trying to drive itself into this old fossilized attitude. Pretty soon guys are going to have to start sending apology letters to teams they beat.

This is all thanks to the mtl media, they make everything is a big issue, they go around asking the same questions every day, what do you think that Subban did this, did that , etc. I don't blame the team and players for being fed up of talking about Subban. Sadly its not even Subban's fault.

Somewhere Terry Ryan is smiling:

"Nice [expletive] pick Habs. Who's going to be the Assistant Coach, Darth Vader? He was ignorant then, and how do you know he has evolved now? He would chain smoke on the team bus. I hated playing for him more than any other coach. I would fly home to my family at year's end crying; they had me go see a psychologist."
