Coach Michel Therrien

Michel Therrien is 16 games into year two of his second stint as head coach of the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs have had an up-and-down start to their season, and it’s time to grade the bench boss’ early 2013-14 performance.

The Canadiens sit at 8-7-1 after having played roughly one-fifth of their schedule. That record places them fifth in the ultra-competitive Atlantic Division and second in the wild-card standings.

Considering Montreal is the defending Northeast Division champion, a .500 record on its own would not be worthy of a very high grade for Therrien. Yet further examination shows that, for the most part, the Canadiens coach and his staff have had an impressive start to the season.

Here are some early grades for Michel Therrien's performance with the Montreal Canadiens so far in 2013-14.
