Days have passed since the major announcement regarding Martin St-Louis's departure, yet the topic continues to spark conversation and touch many people.

This includes Michel Therrien, the former head coach of the Montreal Canadiens, who experienced a very similar situation in 2007 while leading the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He left his team after a game in Ottawa to be with his father, who had suffered a fifth stroke and whose days were numbered.
"I was torn before making that decision. I wondered if it was the right thing to do. Looking back, I'm glad I chose to go see him." - Michel Therrien

The now-retired coach, currently an analyst at TVA Sports, shared a powerful testimony that directly recalls the situation Martin is currently dealing with.
"St-Louis left his wife and children behind to become coach of the Canadiens. I know firsthand that it's not an easy situation to live through." - Michel Therrien

He added:
"It's a privilege to coach in the National Hockey League, but it also comes with many sacrifices. It means you have to miss out on a lot of things and your family has to adapt to allow you to achieve your dream." - Michel Therrien

Therrien concludes with something very important: "St-Louis must take all the time he needs so he doesn't regret it later."
This statement, coming from someone who has been through it before, carries significant weight.
A thoughtful article from Michel Therrien!
