Truly a pathetic organization...fire a buffoon and keep all his hired lemmings... compound the error by allowing the head lemming to resign the two biggest problems to ridicules contracts. Leaf fans there's still hope... with Kessel, Phaneuf and Clarkson only signed for next 8, 7, 6 years, there is hope for year 9.
Carlyle is doubly fucked, because Nonis has made it clear he had as hand in building the team over the summer. Got himself Clarkson and Bolland. And here we are
Hopefully we saw signs of Kadri coming out of that funk he's been in . Small consolation right now but at least its something
I was actually pretty positive on Nonis until this past off season, and then I was like oh no this guy is scaring me. Doesn't he see the quality in some of the guys he is getting rid of. I even remember one interview with Kadri on the golf coarse and he lamented that we were losing some really good players who do a lot of little things that mean a lot. I knew it wasn't good and said so but hoped for the best. Well Nonis you should have left well enough alone and let this team continue to grow. Now its a train wreck. spit!
Make sure you guys click the adds on this site every once in a while. I am sure Alec will appreciate it lol
Carlyle has shown 0 loyalty to Reimer, the guy who carried this team to the playoffs for the first time in years.
Play Reimer you fucking asshat
Peter Holland played 4:30 and McClement played 16:03. Even when down by Carlyle continues to play McClement. At one point in the game Carlyle sent Bozak out with Orr and FML for a defensive zone face-off. He didn't trust Holland defensively but he trusted Orr and FML
I know a coach yells at their team when they don't produce. However, HBO gave great insight into how the players don't respond to Carlyle.
Tonight's story: Loss to Isles perfect example of why Leafs can't just anoint Bernier and alienate Reimer http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/leafs-beat/mirtle-leafs-goalie-battle-far-from-over-after-bernier-falters-again/article16240480/#dashboard/follows/?page=2 …
@MaxwellHowe Even Carlyle acknowledged this as the team he wanted before the season started
@-Keon- watching the explosions made me feel warm for the first time in weeks. More fires and bomb videos / GIFs please
@Murph2417 Doug MacLean actually mentioned last week on hockey central at noon that Carlyle has actually done a very mediocre job. I'D say that it's less than mediocre but for MacLean to be the first talking head to pick up on this is impressive. Probably the only decent hockey observation he's ever made
@Murph2417 For someone who's called the Leafs shit since the summer, Mirtle seems unwilling to blame any of it on Carlyle
@Burtonboy Bozak also said somthing like "We're okay giving up the shots from outside" after the 1st int.. then in the 3rd period it turns out a shot like that cuts the Isles lead to one.. lol
@Burtonboy Trade bozak. The guy is clueless
@Murph2417 Not sure anything will happen til MLSE feels it on the bottom line
@B_Leaf He traded for/signed 'better' players, but screwed up the chemistry. It's all on Nonis...
@ShotgunCharlie I've got Asian anal sluts...what does it mean?
@The_Polish_Cannon recall that
funny, I thought most on this site already did this
@Burtonboy Bernier doesn't even have a full season in his career, no way should he be anointed #1.
Grabo, heart and soul, bought out because he was Russian and Carlyle is a fkin douche who fed him the hardest minutes and then tossed him aside.
I BET YOU WISH WE HAD A GOOD 2WAY CENTER WHO PLAYED WITH HEART
It's the fkin horror story with Wilson and Carlyle, Wilson was an old friend of Burke, Carlyle was Nonis guy from Vancouver, it's like the old boys club for outdated coaches.
Carlyle never calls timeouts, never pulls his goalies, always puts the 4th line on in the Ozone, insists on face punchers in the lineup, can't create a forechecking team, can't manage to implement a breakout, can't even manage to make toast correctly.
Burke claims all teams today are built on his Anaheim model, how much coaching mattered in their cup run is a very valid question
@mattobv BUT HE MANAGED TO WIN A CUP!! And his top two defencemen were just some bums named Neidermeyer and Pronger
