A Hockey City: Hail to the Coach

This week's Habs cartoon goes out to Michel Therrien, who just coached his 700th NHL game.

A great coach does many things for his players aside from motivating them and structuring his team. He is also a mentor who teaches his players about the game. Is Michel Therrien a great coach?

Michel Therrien used to work for Bell Canada fixing telephone lines before he became a coach. I wonder if he uses any of the skills he developed in that back-breaking labour behind the bench of the Montreal Canadiens.
