No joke there. I've seen enough of him the past few seasons. Yeah all powerplays have hot and cold streaks, but this guy has possibly "the best playmaker" in the game, along with the #2 Norris Winner(Gonchar), add in Malkin, ____ and ____. I mean there's no reason after the past few years why this guy still has control of something a cutout poster of Gordon Bombay could coach. The powerplay isn't successful because of him or any of his plans. It's successful because the raw talent in spite of his junk coaching tactics. You're supposed to give your team the best possible edge. This freaking cupcake has refused to ever do that. TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Sorry, I'm so tired of Yeo. Like I said....I firmly think that Yeo has ZERO influence on when the PP goes hot. He's an empty $1000 suit out there. It's Monday, no sleep and the world is falling down.

So Yeo gets no credit when the PP is working but all the blame when it doesn't? Hmmm...

If you read my post you'll see why I give him no credit.

SoupOrSam ..

You're right-on. Well put.

The current coaching staff is holding back this team .. sabotaging it. It was (also) a big mistake to extend Therrien for two years. This means we're financially stuck with him probably until the end of the 2009-2010 season. Not good. I'm hoping maybe they'll replace him (and Yeo) by the trading deadline in 2010.

Do people know when they are on your ignore list? I'd love to be able to figure out who has ignored me.

I challenge any of you Therrien detractors to explain to me, in "X and O" terms, why he is a bad coach, and what SPECIFIC aspects of his coaching philosphy you dislike.

You wanna talk about "raw talent" taking us to the cup finals? HA!

Let's see some specifics. I want exact details. Hockey terminology. Draw me up something on photoshop. Whatever.

I want exact "X and O" hockey discussion. 1-2-2 Swing forchecking, etc.

You can title it "Why Michel Therrien is a bad coach - a discussion and illustration by: (Your Name)."

Most of you detractors wouldn't know an X or an O if it came up and bit you in the you-know-what.

Well put. I agree completely. Sadly, Therrien-trolls like iseeguins will completely ignore this post and continue promoting their anti-therrien agendas. Even the Cup wouldn't end it.
