Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,
Michel Therrien’s explanation for benching his leading scorer for most of the third period in a game the Canadiens trailed by two goals:
“Team concept is very important.
“That will never, never, never change.”
Let’s see if we can top the kindly old coach:
The Canadiens will never, never, never, never make the playoffs if Therrien screws up P.K. Subban.
And the coach was not content with benching the Canadiens’ best player.
Down two goals late, Therrien did not bother pulling goaltender Peter Budaj.
What message does that send to his team?
