Steve Spott the " buffer between RC and the roster".   What does that say?

@dlb Mad @Optimustic No, I haven't.  Seems to me that when someone is brought in to be a buffer, that there is a problem though.   Even if it isn't RC's fault, they aren't going to continually replace the roster, eventually the coach will have to go.

@Cloud09 @Optimustic Yup, and that the players aren't getting along with him.  That's what I'm hoping was the reason for the poor results at the end of last season.   Either fix the problem between RC and the players or replace RC and we'll have a better season this year.

@Optimustic @dlb Mad Honestly, half the time I think these guys would piss themselves if they had some of my Junior coaches.

@dlb Mad @Cloud09 I could care less. I think it's silly to wait for a coach on another team but I'm not going to be upset if Babcock became the Leafs head coach.

@dlb Mad @Cloud09 Babcock has a leg to stand on if he's hard on players though - his system, and his methods are proven to work even when his roster is crazily depleted, or when it lacks talent in the first place. Carlyle has never had any success except for the 2-3 seasons where he had two first ballot hall-of-fame defenders, Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan and an amazing supporting cast on top of it. There are very few coaches who wouldn't have been able to make it work there during those years.

@Xxxxxnew @Optimustic @dlb Mad Sure seems like it sometimes, maybe they feel that onece they make it to the big league that they can take it easier.  Most of us could never reach their level of ability no matter how hard we tried. Not saying that they don't work to become better, but a lot of players have to put in a lot more effort and still don't make the NHL.
