Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki continue to light it up, both over a point per game under St. Louis, giving fans something to watch.
St. Louis said from the outset that he wants to implement changes slowly to allow players to adjust and master what he wants them to do before adding more layers. That’s an excellent long-term strategy, and we’ll have to keep our eyes open to see how things change during the next season or two.
There are lots of positives to spotlight, but I want to focus on an area that continues to require improvement.
While there have been some structural and personnel changes, the special teams continue to be an issue for the Canadiens. We can’t ignore the fact that the team is still missing key players due to injury in both situations, but that was the case under Ducharme as well. With that in mind, how do the Canadiens compare on special teams under both coaches?
