We had the chance to wipe the slate clean (somewhat clean) by buying out Liles... sigh...

Do we know how much influence TL had in getting Clarkson?  Free agency has killed us... but maybe it's a case that many players don't like the pressure cooker...

Many here were critical of Yzerman... I think he's done a good job... it didn't take him long to get a good goalie and his free agent signings were good with Filpula...

Of course the pressure of Tampa is nothing compared to Toronto...

While I was always a Burke fan I think his firing may have been justified given his inability to get a legit goalie and his hiring of Carlyle.  I liked Carlyle at the start but a younger, more flexible coach was needed.  I heard a good comment about Carlyle a while back - he's made his money as a coach and he doesn't care and won't change.

Nonis has made mistakes but he's had some bad luck too... Clarckson being a dumb-ass and the Bolland and Bernier injuries.  Nonis should be credited for getting Bernier and Bolland; two important acquisitions relatively cheaply...

I like the Shanahan hiring... given Nonis's mistakes I think it's best he gets his own man...

How long before Nonis gets hired in Calgary?

Heard an interesting quote on Ottawa radio recently about Carlyle, something to the effect that he's made his money as a coach and will not change his ways as a result... guess that's one of the possible drawbacks when hiring an experienced coach...
