No he didn't ask her to tweet it. He just calls Therrien a French fuck.

Wasn't she calling Renaud Lavoie a French fuck?

As in "get your facts straight you French fuck". Maybe even as in "French media" fuck.

Either way, how do you conclude that she didn't take some editorial liberties?

No. She was referencing the communication and the replacement of one fuck (therrien) by another (julien).

The lack of communication is only something Pateryn could have told her.

Couples talk, dog.

No one tweets something like that if she didn't feel comfortable doing it.

If your wife comes home every night insulting some dude at her school. That you've never/rarely talked to. 99% of your thought about said Dude would have actually come from your wife.

I thought the french fuck tweet followed the answer to the therrien doesn't talk tweet (as in, was on the same day). Went back and saw that the french fuck tweet was today and the therrien tweet in the past (can't see the date). How do we know that's what she was referring to (ie that she's talking about Julien and not something else). We don't have the thread preceding her tweet.

Either way, how dumb do you have to be to tweet "french fuck" when your boyfriend is making millions by playing for a city full of french fucks?

Martin Leclerc reporting there was an incident in which Therrien humiliated (personal insults) Shaw for one of his stupid penalties in front of the team and could have been the turning point for the former.

Hes fine at center. Hes not perfect defensively but meh.. he'll never be toews. We need a centre and he puts up points there.

We need to just live with the fact he'll do mostly good, some bad, and keep helping him grow at centre.

Getting a scoring centre is so hard we shouldnt throw him on the wing just cause he isnt perfect.

I don't think it's as much a d zone issue as it is how little traditional playmaking you see. They need some C driven lines. I really like Lehkonen's game, really sound player, who would have 35 points by now if a puck distributor was on the team. There's nothing wrong with a scoring C, Radulov is a good playmaking winger for one, but at some point, the C has to lead a line.

I have no problem with sticking him on a different line than Radulov-Pacioretty. That line isn't working, and it worked better previously with Danault in the middle. Nothing says that your top three offensive guys all have to play on the same line. Might be better to let Danault play there, and let Galchenyuk be "the guy" and drive his line.

I just think that he needs to be in the middle.

Playing him at LW makes no sense.

Even if you go on the theory that he is a goal scorer and not enough of a passer (which i don't buy as including Junior and this season he has more assists than goals in 6 of his 7 seasons). Still even if you buy that, why move him to LW? His goals come from one-timers on the RH side of the ice, from the right circle. Playing him on LW makes it harder for him to get in that spot. Thats why his point production has gone way up playing at C vs playing LW in his career. Leave him at C, let him play the 2nd line, and let him exploit easier matchups as Radulov and Pacioretty draw the oppositions best defenders. I think that benefits the team.

Jamie McLennan was on that's hockey and that is what he predicted will happen. Julien will put him on LW for a few games and then move him back to the middle, this is a coach giving him a wake up call on his defensive responsibilities, as well as trying to have two dangerous lines going. Chuck will end up at Centre cause the Habs need him there.

I think Galchenyuk is a C, but the problem is in his fucking head.

We need to just live with the fact he'll do mostly good, some bad, and keep helping him grow at centre.

Getting a scoring centre is so hard we shouldnt throw him on the wing just cause he isnt perfect.

Find a number 2 in offseason who plays a two way game if you have to

I don't think it's as much a d zone issue as it is how little traditional playmaking you see. They need some C driven lines. I really like Lehkonen's game, really sound player, who would have 35 points by now if a puck distributor was on the team. There's nothing wrong with a scoring C, Radulov is a good playmaking winger for one, but at some point, the C has to lead a line.


I have no problem with sticking him on a different line than Radulov-Pacioretty. That line isn't working, and it worked better previously with Danault in the middle. Nothing says that your top three offensive guys all have to play on the same line. Might be better to let Danault play there, and let Galchenyuk be "the guy" and drive his line.

I just think that he needs to be in the middle.

Playing him at LW makes no sense.

Even if you go on the theory that he is a goal scorer and not enough of a passer (which i don't buy as including Junior and this season he has more assists than goals in 6 of his 7 seasons). Still even if you buy that, why move him to LW? His goals come from one-timers on the RH side of the ice, from the right circle. Playing him on LW makes it harder for him to get in that spot. Thats why his point production has gone way up playing at C vs playing LW in his career. Leave him at C, let him play the 2nd line, and let him exploit easier matchups as Radulov and Pacioretty draw the oppositions best defenders. I think that benefits the team.

Jamie McLennan was on that's hockey and that is what he predicted will happen. Julien will put him on LW for a few games and then move him back to the middle, this is a coach giving him a wake up call on his defensive responsibilities, as well as trying to have two dangerous lines going. Chuck will end up at Centre cause the Habs need him there.

I'd be tempted to put Max P with a different line, but right now it seems like 27 can go periods without touching the puck. Probably temporary anyways, just a way to get him going.

There's a difference between being a good passer and a good playmaker or puck distributor. Galch is a good passer, he has the skillset to make difficult plays look easy, but he doesn't really direct traffic very well. He has to be able to slow things down a bit, put his wingers in a better position.

He's got areas to improve, thats for sure.

It'd be nice if he was further in his development than he is, but that's partially due to the fact that this is really his first fullseason at the position. It would have been nice if Therrien did more to let him learn to be a centre, but that didn't happen, so all that can be done now is let him do his thing, teach him what he needs to work on, and live with the fact he won't be the perfect centre today.

You can't go into the playoffs with a Centre combo of Danault - Shaw - and the ghost of Tomas Plekanec.... you just can't survive like that.

where is Robert Lang when you need him
:mkbét::lr: :lr:



OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone



It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.



Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."



...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...
