Another Habs player openly criticizes Dominique Ducharme's system

Since the arrival of Martin St-Louis as head coach of the Canadiens, it's been day and night, if we compare the current performance of the team to that of recent times under the reign of Dominique Ducharme.

Not only is the Canadian winning more consistently with a 7-4-0 record since the change of coach, but the show offered by the players is much better.

We remember that Jeff Petry was not shy to criticize Dominique Ducharme's system of play and now another defender from the team added his voice to that of Petry.

Brett Kulak declared during an interview, on, that his game had clearly improved since the arrival of Martin St-Louis and that he had a lot more freedom on the ice.

Personally, the biggest difference I've noticed is that we're just playing hockey. I don't play trying to fill a to-do list in my head. I play hockey freely.

Obviously, when players openly criticize a coach's system of play, it's because there is discomfort within a team, and that was obviously the case with the Canadians in the last few weeks before the departure of Ducharme.

Since St-Louis has been in charge, we can feel that the majority of players on the team are much more comfortable with the style of play advocated by the new coach and that the fun is returned to the team's entourage, to the delight of the Canadiens' supporters. We can perhaps forget the playoffs for this year, but if the team is able to give us good hockey by the end of the season, it's everyone who will come out a winner.
