DYKHUIS: WHEN I THINK OF MICHEL THERRIEN, I THINK OF PASSION


Karl Dykhuis, who patrolled the blueline for the Montreal Canadiens when Michel Therrien was behind the Habs’ bench for the better part of three seasons, says Terrien was able to instill a sense of confidence on the team.

“We enjoyed going to the rink under Therrien,” said Dykhuis.  “He was able to get the guys to bond together. The passion is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Michel Therrien.”

Dykhuis said Therrien isn’t afraid of telling the guys to be physical.

“He understands that part of the game.  No teams were going to take it easy against us. Hopefully he’ll bring some toughness to the team.  That’s what I saw when I played for him.”

“I think it’s going to be a great decision,” added Dykhuis.  “We’ll see how it goes.”
