    Turned it off, couldnt stomach listening to Carlyle whining.

  • lukethenuke

    compete compete thats what he says fuck man

  • Wowzer

    “mind boggling”, “confusing”, “no idea why that was happening”…your coach, everyone.

  • wendelsfist

    So the assistants coaches were ‘common’ theme from the Wilson collapse to game 7 and to the Carlyle coach?

  • peterbleafs

    Those assistants were foisted upon Wilson when his assistants sucked, so Nonis forced them onto Wilson…therefore Nonis is the common theme.

  • Tommy Cat

    Well they can’t be accused of just making a popular choice.  If they really believe in RC then they are after doing what they think is right regardless of public opinion.

  • Wowzer

    wendelsfist wiskiNo, Marcel Dionne. Another new vice preident 1/2 coach coming on board.

  • Tommy Cat

    @Wowzer wendelsfist wiski  Great player.

  • Tommy Cat

    wendelsfist wiski  Marcel that is!!!

  • traNsplantEdneWfie

    I don’t know if it was the right move to keep Carlyle but I do like the message it sends to the players “get your ass in gear because it’s not the coaches fault that you failed”.  This consistency will go a long way overall.

  • mcloki

    was that the first congratulations?

  • wiski

    they got rid of his buddy Ferris

  • peterbleafs

    traNsplantEdneWfie That has to be our only hope in this decision.

  • Komas Taberle

  • Darkside Beleafer

    LN-093 The only explanation I can think is that this is the start of a zombie apocalypse. First madness, then cannibalism, then panic in the streets.

  • Tommy Cat

    NotRealCanuckUK Tommy Cat  Did the dog struggle at all when you changes his jersey?

    “TORONTO
    (May 8) – It appears, at the moment, the Maple Leafs hired Brendan
    Shanahan so he could help convince general manager David Nonis to fire
    Randy Carlyle’s assistant coaches.
    If so, mission accomplished.
    In
    what has to rank among the least-earned rewards in recent Toronto
    hockey annals, Carlyle was today given a two-year contract extension by
    the hockey club – Shanahan and Nonis choosing to blame the late-season
    catastrophe on the head coach’s lieutenants, Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin
    and Scott Gordon, all of whom were fired. Exactly what Carlyle
    did to earn the extension is beyond the scope of any person that watched
    the Leafs completely tune him out down the stretch of the regular
    season, when the club face-planted at 2-12-0 and missed the playoffs for
    the eighth time in nine springs.
    RANDY CARLYLE HAS LOTS TO SMILE ABOUT TODAY.
    For
    a hockey team that has long battled a perceived sense of entitlement,
    this might be the most profound example. The three assistants fired
    today were Carlyle’s personal choices to stay on when he replaced Ron
    Wilson in March 2012. Cronin and Gordon had been on Wilson’s staff;
    Carlyle added Farrish – his former right-hand man in Anaheim.
    Apparently, they were the reason the Leafs fell apart in March
    and April, along with such players as Clarke MacArthur and Mikhail
    Grabovski, who Carlyle ordered off the club last summer.
    The
    deed, however, has been done and Leafs will begin next season with
    Carlyle behind the bench. Of course, a contract extension today is worth
    only the ink on which it written. As Brian Burke proved with Wilson, it
    guarantees nothing in respect to term.
    It is now up to Shanahan and Nonis to provide Carlyle with players that will listen to him. My best wishes to both men.”
    Berger 
    I agree the least-earned reward

  • wendelsfist

    The tears on PPP are so delightful – I’m enjoying licking those tears.  They are the reason we have can’t  have nice things like a better coach and now have to live with the consequences.

  • NotRealCanuckUK

    I am hearing Leafs are upgrading their mgmt team.. replacing Dave Poulin (Vice President of Hockey Ops) with a better VP of Hockey Ops-  from Florida… His name is Wolfman Viola

  • mcloki

    NotRealCanuckUK  clap for the Wolfman

  • NotRealCanuckUK

    mcloki NotRealCanuckUK Wolfman will probably give you the clap

  • Great Dane

    Ricky_Vaives_slapshot Give the guy a break – when his writes something that is right he should be acknowledge for it.

  • randalfo

  • rustynail

    This doesn’t change the fact that if the club fails early next season, there will be a change at the head coaching position.

  • Murph2417

    mike_84 wendelsfist  love that episode

  • Tommy Cat

    Burtonboy  Thanks Captain Obvious Cox

  • Great Dane

    Tommy Cat Burtonboy The MSM are already smelling blood.

  • NotRealCanuckUK

    I guess the delay in the announcement for Carlyle coming back?   took a while for Carlyle to negotiate HIS terms and pay increase on his FUCKING TWO YEAR EXTENSION

  • loomx

    traNsplantEdneWfie  Yeah! That’ll show em! It’s not the fault of the guy who “misused and mismanaged pieces”, a big problem that Shanny said upon being hired. This will hold the players accountable. By keeping the coach who failed just as much and didn’t hold his own players accountable.
