MICHEL THERRIEN

Le Last Habs Coach who was not affraid to bring goons in his lineup. To do it right without an heavy overdefensive system.

I gotta say, as much as I like to make fun of Martin and his lack of emotions, he is a good coach, perfectly built for the team we have now. He is one of those guys you hate but deep down inside you know he is smart and he knows what he is doing. All the previous coaches were experiments and were caught clueless more than once. I'll bash him for his line changes, but I'll thank him when my favorite team will pass round 1, and then who knows what might happen next. Martin doesn't look at explosions, that's how cool he is.



EDIT : That'd be awesome if some photoshop artist could actually make a pic of Martin not looking at an explosion

And he actually showed emotions.

At least he didnt look like a dead man like Julien or Martin behind the bench.

Still prefer Therrien.

Carbo took a team stocked with egos and prima donnas to first in the east. A bad couple of months where the team decided to mail it in because of off ice issues was his undoing. Most of the guys dumped from the team that following summer never amounted to much afterward under supposedly better coaches; it goes to show the level of ******** he had to deal with. Hell, at the start of January that season, his team was still second in the east.

Carbo would be back on top if he had the team Martin currently has. I was extremely disappointed to see him go.

Speaking of coaches, I wonder why we never had the Don Lever era here in Montreal. I remember all of the fanfare when he was pulled up from Hamilton. And then........poof......... he was gone.

I know it's not an option but I like Vigneault the best. I will always remember that after he got fired, he mentioned to a reporter who asked him how is he adjusting to life outside the Habs organization and he said he was watching the game on TV with his children and they scorned at the sight of watching the Habs but he told them to be more forgiving, that the Habs are still "daddy's" team. So classy. And look at him now, one if not the best coach in the league.

I'll never forgive Therrien for the 3-1 lead the Habs blew in the playoffs vs. the Hurricanes. Bill Lindsay for the last faceoff. ****.

Carbonneau's version of Martin's lines:

Weber - Plekanec - Cammalleri
Gomez - Eller - Pouliot
Kostitsyn - White - Gionta
Darche - Moen - Spacek

I don't always agree with Martin, but can't argue with his results.Still, my favourite was Gainey. A cranky, old school badass behind the bench. I liked him a lot. Remember Laraque with Koivu and Kovalev vs. Boston in the playoffs, LOL. Or his response to a reporter whose wife questioned Price, "maybe your wife should stick to baking bread"

Too bad he thought Laraque would actually do something other than suck. But I agree with the general jist of ur post. Basically, I don't like any of the former coaches until it trickles down to Vigneault. Julien was by far the best of these bunch, but he's a regular season coach.

Pretty much, although you know Pyatt would be getting 20 minutes per game.

I wouldn't say I'm an enormous fan of any of the coaches, but Carbonneau is the only one I really couldn't stand. He was by far the most entertaining in his press conferences and I wanted him to succeed here, but I couldn't stand the way he handled his roster. Mediocre defensemen going from the pressbox to first-line wing. Returning Samsonov to the top six instead of scratching him after he whined to the media about wearing a fourth-line jersey during practice (and scratching Perezhogin in the process). Gah.

I don't like Martin all that much or enjoy the passive style of hockey he wants this team to play, but he's done a good job. I don't think another coach could have had better results with our roster this year, especially with all the injuries, so I don't think it's fair to call for his head right now.

I don't think Therrien is a very good coach, but I will say I liked the passion he brought behind the bench and I was glad we had him after the McLaren-Zednik incident. After that Lindsay face-off though he had to go. I don't count Gainey as a coach because he was only on a very temporary basis although I do like the way the team played during his first stint. I didn't mind Julien most of the time and the Bill Dauterive gif is awesome.

I think the Habs were up 3-0 in the game, and 2-1 in the series. It was the third period and they would've been heading back to Montreal up 3-1. Instead they let in a couple goals, and Therrien sent Lindsay out to take that final defensive zone faceoff, despite the fact that the team had Gilmour, Koivu, Juneau and not to mention the best faceoff man in the league, Yanic Perreault. Nick ****ing Wallin scored in overtime and I broke my tv remote. Habs got blown out the rest of the series. Sigh.

Something i always found interresting with Montreal Canadiens coaches, it seemed they never had that bad of records but our demands as a city and fanbase were always "too" much lol, i went to check the stats to see if its true

Mario Tremblay 95-97 : 71 wins - 63 losses - 25

Alain Vigneault 97-01 : 109 Wins - 118 losses - 35

Micheal Therrien 01-03 : 77 wins 77 losses - 37

Claude Julien 03-06 : 72 wins 62 losses 11 ties - 14 Ot losses

Guy Carbonneau 06-09 : 124 wins 83 losses 23 OTL (lol this is pretty impressive btw)

Jacques Martin 09 - now : 82 wins - 63 losses - 18 OTL

i was always partial to therrien and the "YOUR GOING DOWN!" throat slash after zednik went down, and we ultimately DID beat the bruins.
