un canadien errant

The Montreal Canadiens named a new coach this week, Michel Therrien. A new old coach: Therrien, of course, steered the team for parts of three seasons from 2000-03. Following, a taste of online fan reaction from the corridors of comment at The Gazette, La Presse, RDS.ca, and Le Journal de Montreal.

Un bon choix
how stupid could they get
Quel mauvais choix et je m’explique


Defense wins championships.
Honnêtement, je ne comprends pas pourquoi la majorité voit Michel
Therrien dans leur soupe
Hal Gill didn’t say he didn’t want to play for Michel Therrien.

The guy cannot speak fluently or correctly, neither in french or english,
but he gets his meaning across.

C’est difficile de faire du neuf avec du vieux.
I think it is a boring move by the Habs is what has everyone bummed out.
* puke *

1976 Habs would destroy today’s Habs.

Jacques Demers n’était pas le choix des fans non plus
Okay, I’m over my initial disappointment.

Still combs his hair with a pork chop!

My doubts about Therrien have to do with temperament. I think coaches
should be cool and in control of themselves.
Bottom line to me is that Therrien is a decent coach.
Does it always have to be about language?

Give Therrien a chance before throwing in the towel.

If you look at Therrien’s record in context it isn’t that bad.
Mauvaise choix.
