Controversial Decision Announced: Martin St-Louis is Severely Criticized and It's Causing a Stir

It's rare to see this, but following the match against the Vegas Golden Knights, the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens, Martin St-Louis, has been criticized by many.

And it continues today, a few hours before the match against the Bruins.

Why? The use of Jesse Ylonen.

See, in particular, one of the messages that is widely circulating.


«Jesse Ylonen, who scored 2 even-strength goals tonight, played 7:22 mins (2nd lowest on the team).

Josh Anderson, who's scored 0 goals in 17 games this season, played 16:44 mins (3rd highest among forwards).

Make it make sense.»

And there are several of this kind.

In the eyes of many, Martin St-Louis gives too much ice time to certain players who don't necessarily deserve it, like Josh Anderson, and not enough to other players who deserve much more, like Jesse Ylonen.

« Nobody asked coach Marty in his post game press conference why Jesse Ylonen, a player who scored two goals in one game for a team who can't score f****g goals, wasn't on the ice with a min left & down by a goal. Nobody asked him why Ylonen played 7:22 mins (2nd lowest on team).»
