Despite having been fired by the organization during the 2002-03 season, the Montreal Candadiens have re-hired Michel Therrien to be their head coach once again.
So Michel Therrien is back as #Habs head coach… He's the sixth coach in team history to return for a second stint.

The Habs have to be the most forgiving team in the NHL because of all the second chances they give.
Therrien is a great example, because his coaching tenure with the team from 2000-03 was a bit less than successful, finishing with a record of 77-77-37 before he was fired.
There are a few supporters of the move…
@Tommy_Doucet looks like Michel Terrien will be the next Habs coach. I liked him in Pittsburgh. Good choice
