Pittsburgh Steelers fans know this well, and let's hope it doesn't get as bad as it did for Matt Canada, but we witnessed a sad scene last night live from the Bell Centre.

After a power play during which the CH struggled immensely, the Bell Centre crowd began to chant "Fire Burrows," demanding the immediate dismissal of the Canadiens' assistant coach.

It must have been very hard for him to hear.

It's not like the Habs' power play was extraordinary before his arrival either.


After all, the Canadiens currently have the 18th best power play in the NHL, ahead of the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins. It's not great, but it's not a disaster either.


In any case, fans are certainly entitled to their opinion, but we just wanted to mention that we found it hard to hear and quite harsh.

It seems a bit too easy to put all the blame on one individual, and no one deserves to have a crowd unanimously call for you to lose your job.

Let's remember the case of Lindy Ruff last season.

The "Fire Lindy" chants quickly turned into "Sorry Lindy," because fans were calling for his dismissal, but in the end, he made the Devils excellent and dominant.

We are convinced that Burrows brings a lot of positives to the youngsters as an assistant.
