i watched the Habs again beat the thrashers. Allowing only two goals in two games against the high scoring thrashers is a nice story no soubt and i just thought about the general state of the club right now.
Gainey is clearling up things here and there( randy mckay, czerkawski, audette, traverse, dhykhuis)
bringing in help( dagenais, begin, langdon)
supporting the players( brisebois, theodore)
letting the coach work with his players( ryder, ribeiro, souray, komisarek)
surrounding himself with good people( savard, gauthier, doug jarvis on the farm)
I think everything is going better then my personal expectations and above many media expectations as well.
Gord stellick on Hockey central said coach julien is among the 5 best caoching stories of the year so far and i have heard that most people agree theodore is playing like he did when he won the vezina and hart trophies.
Keep it up guys.
p.s. i did not know kilger was on waivers and apparently he cleared waivers today.
