    I suspect Quenneville goes back to STL, it’ll be GM Armstrong’s last hurrah to salvage his job.

    Video of the Sens ripping their team/coach. Douche bag move by Uber driver to post it... but man, another kick in the balls for this team. What a bad look.
    ***k that dysfunctional org, there’s got to be a way to fleece them of Stone, who’d look mighty fine next to Domi & Drouin.

    Nearly every worker has complained about their job or boss at some point. This isn't shocking stuff.

    It's not the complaining that is the problem, it's some of the answers.

    When Duchene says he has not been listening in meeting for 3 weeks, it's a huge problem. As a paid professionnal, you can't just ignore meetings and pretend they are happening. If the team is dead last in PP and you don't listen to meeting, then maybe the problem is not the coach but the player.

    But again, we all knew that Duchene was a cluster**** and a Cancer. Apparently, Bergevin was interested when he was available but survey some other GM about him and they pretty much all told him to stay away from the guy. Dorion should have done the same before trading half the club and picks for a guy that obviously, will not sign back with them.

    To put in perspective Domi who’s at slightly above a PPG clip currently sits 46th league wide...
    maybe
    but october had the same amount of goals per game as last year
    so maybe just early season type of stuff

    see if it stays this way

    I wonder how much Lafleur,Shutt etc. tuned into any meetings Bowman might have had.They may have, but, knowing the cast of characters as illustrated in Dryden's "The Game" I imagine there was quite a lot of mocking him behind his back. Different times.....no one to post it then. Of course, that team could do what they wanted, as they won. As for Bergevin asking around, if I were an opposing GM and felt that way about Duchesne, I imagine I would have told him to go for it. All's fair.....

    The majority of the nicknames that come from this board are equally the worst.

    Aho and Chabot in my fantasy draft

    Max Domi is the surprising one here.
    I had him as a late pick both previous year in my pool.
    Thought he was gonna bring it to the next level last year but he really disappointed.
    No way I was going with him a 3rd year in a row with him joining the dumpster fire in Montreal.
    (He went undrafted in our fanstasy draft this year)

    I guess that was not the year to quit on him, hats off to anyone who may a foreseen Domi's blooming into THE man in Montreal.
    Still early, but this is going to be a career year for him.

    His high pitched voice must be grating on his team.

    He appears to be the douchiest coach in the NHL.
