I have it on good authority, (friend of shaws brother)
that he is much happier with CJ over MT. He said MT never spoke to him in the locker room, said little and he(shaw) was never sure what MT wanted.

Said the locker room is a much better place under CJ over MT, even when they were winning under MT, its still vastly improved.
Said MT treated alot of players like bags of poop.

Which for me, was always the biggest knock on Therrien...not necessarily his coaching tactics, but just the way he treated players on a personal level.

Like Steve Begin, timing is everything. He took some bad penalties, undisciplined things, and offensive zone stuff, at very critical junctures in games. Those happened, we didn't imagine them.

Its one thing if late in a game you hook a guy to stop a scoring chance. Its another to take a dumb one in the offensive zone/neutral zone, and nowhere near the puck. One that comes to mind was when he was skating to the bench, and he just had to stop and body check a guy on the other team. The guy didn't have the puck and was just skating to his own bench. That's dumb and undisciplined. I'm glad he's not doing that anymore.

He's been terrific lately.

Easily one of the best Habs forwards.

Sounds good! If we can get him...if price is right! (from the little I know about him...he's a good one).

And, I was just having fun (as I'm sure you know!)...I really meant another actual Andrew Shaw! Adding a leftie Shaw (leftie twin brother if he has one?!!) would be a nice bonus for our LEFT side during the playoffs...in case (for example) someone like Pacioretty doesn't deliver...LEFTIE-Shaw to the rescue!, or...a leftie-Shaw for the 3rd or 2nd or 1st line...RIGHTIE-Shaw for our top 6-9...he did it with Chicago (playoffs)...and he could do it again with Mtl. I'll be shocked if he disappears during playoffs...it'll be the first time I see that from him if it happens. (It won't since he lives for playoffs...some have it...some don't... and Shaw definitely has the ''it'' factor for playoffs).

Just wondering...how many here are counting on Shaw for playoffs?
(and if not...which forwards are you guys counting on?).

To me...Shaw (3 CUPS) is our main playoff captain/leader/forward...he has been there (BIG SHOW/real season) more than any other Hab player, yet he's still pretty young. So much playoff experience and lots of winning/success (at a young age). Habs need more of these type of players/playoff winners to end the miserable 0 since 1993 CUP drought.

After Shaw I'm looking at King (2 CUPS) as leader of the 3rd-4th lines (2nd liner in case of many injuries)...and then Radulov (strong playoff pts history) for the top 6...and then there's Danault, Mitchell (warrior/leader for the 4th line), Byron (speed-demon/heart/PK weapon). We don't have many playoff warrior forwards (I hope I'm so wrong on this!), so we should be loyal to the few proven ones we have (ex: Shaw, King).


Cheers!

Go Shaw Go!!
Go King Go!!

Seems like most players who left/got traded from the habs says the same thing
I remember Bourque, Parenteau, DSP, etc. saying something like that

He's maybe not that similar to Shaw, but Killorn would be such a great add.
