Michel Therrien is probably not what you would call a "player's coach."

He's strict, structured, demands discipline and is not afraid to call his players out in the media. (Does anybody ever get tired of watching his post-game meltdown when he was coaching in Pittsburgh?)

He also apparently hates fun, which is why Canadiens goaltender Carey Price and defenseman P.K. Subban won't be doing their "triple low-five" to celebrate wins this season.

From Arpon Basu:

Oh, come on.

If you're not familiar with the triple low-five, this is it:

Sports are fun. Athletes are in the entertainment business. Do we really want a bunch of emotionless robots out there?

And is that celebration really so bad that the coach needs to put a stop to it? No. It's not.

The NHL needs more personalities like P.K. Subban (and Edmonton's Nail Yakupov). Not fewer.
