The Montreal Canadiens who are injury battered, diminutive, and under-talented are off to their worst start in decades. They haven’t drafted well, they’ve made questionable trades, the coming and going of free agents has been brutal, today General Manager Pierre Gauthier took the obvious and clearly necessary step of removing the biggest obstacle to success from within the organization. Over the objections of Head Coach Jacques Martin, he fired special teams coach Perry Pearn.

Habs fans, ever reluctant to publicly criticize anyone did reluctantly, and with great reticence take to Twitter to express their opinions. Despite the small number of people willing to weigh in on the issue, it somehow tipped over into a minor meme. Here is some of what as been shared:

    Two-Four in a segment called Five Minutes For Fighting where we talk to
    bloggers and podcasters of other teams about their team and the NHL and
