    I was joking with him but yeah, that's a good "point" too. Julien is clueless about OT.

    Julien survived by being a safe, low-risk, old school defensive system coach. If Pleks-Dano are ALWAYS the first two centers in OT, it's because he's hoping we make it to shootouts, because we have the advantage with Price vs the field of NHL goalies
    If he's hoping to make the shootout (which we suck at) it actually hurts the team. OT wins are worth more (not points).

    Pleks is part of his flawed strategy to win in OT.

    When the options to take the opening faceoff are Dano and Pleks. Does it really matter?

    I've given up trying to figure out what is or isn't goalie interference.

    Re OT goal against, Max went for the loose puck, playing to win hockey. Danault didn't backcheck.

    The refs don't even know what is or isn't. Last night proved that.

    Um he took his guy, Danault didn't get his guy.

    Yeah, the biggest difference for me between the two is that MT is a dick while Julien seems to be a nice guy. MT was also a better in game coach IMO.

    I agree with that. The Canadiens play well enough, they just lack talent. That's on the GM.

    The only "dumb" thing about overtime is that Galchenyuk and Byron weren't on the ice to start it.

    Growing soft. We're bottom third of the league in just about any conceivable category, and we still have trouble playing more than one good period per game.

    Claude Julien is the Boston Bruins all-time franchise leader in wins as head coach.

    He still bleeds black & gold, and he’s making subtle in game decisions like the OT ones to sabotage the Habs chances of victory, either consciously or unconsciously.

    Pharmacy closed? Unable to refill your meds?

    That's some conspiracy theory.


    Yes, I'm aware it was facetious.
