It was five years ago today that Michel Therrien melted down after a penguins loss. After replacing Eddie O, everyone was waiting for an explosion from Therrien. On Jan 10, 2006 it happened.
You can say a lot of things about Michel Therrien, but the meltdown was a symbolic moment in Penguins history. Not only because it became clear Michel Therrien was trying to change things, but because to this day hearing someone say “dey soff,” is still funny as it was that cold January night.
On a side note, the Michel Therrien photoshop expo still remains to this day probably the best photoshop expo in the history of the blog.
