Michel Therrien admits there were times he went too far as a coach

1 décembre 2019
Michel Therrien admits he sometimes crossed the line while coaching. Therrien was asked about recent comments made by Dan Carcillo when he was in Montreal on the weekend for the Canadiens-Philadelphia Flyers game. Therrien is now an assistant coach for Philly.

"I hope people will learn from events of the week. I hope there will be better coaches and better people. There are all kinds of events in a career," said Therrien. "But there is one important thing to remember as well. We must not mix what happened in different cases where we must talk about psychological play. It's completely different and you have to be careful, "said Therrien, who has coached players in the QMJHL, AHL and NHL since 1990.


Last week, Carcillo named several coaches that he's played for that he claims crossed a line during his career. One of this was Therrien, who coached Carcillo while he was playing for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Carcillo accused Therrien of "playing endless mind games."

"There were times harder than others. I have seven or eight anecdotes that come in mind, but there are always two sides to a coin. Sometimes I went too far and I regret it," admitted Therrien, although he explained in the interview that his main goal was always to get every player to reach their maximum potential.

"It is certain that I do not do today what I was doing then. The league has evolved. It's life. The important thing is to adapt. This generation of young players is fun to lead," Therrien said.

Carcillo's claims came in the aftermath of the accusations against then Calgary coach Bill Peters, who was accused of yelling racial slurs at Akim Aliu while he was coaching the Rockford IceHogs 10 years ago. Peters eventually admitted to using the slurs, and stepped down from his position with the Flames late last week.
