There will be no more triple low-five from P.K. Subban and Carey Price
Michel Therrien hates fun. It's the only explanation.
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?)
From Arpon Basu:
Therrien says there will be no triple low-five victory celebrations between Subban and Price this season: "I like my teams to be humble."— Arpon Basu (@ArponBasu) February 1, 2013
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.
