@rustynail @GreekGod@wendelsfistI still find it incredible Leafs giving up 40 plus shots a game, since November, and Carlyle didn't give a shit.

@wendelsfist The Leafs must be worst collection of players, ever, since  even expansion teams gave up less shots in a season. Something doesn't jive.....

If Brennan is named AHL defenseman of the year and was not deemed to help Leafs defense you wonder about Leafs pro scouting, once again.

@MaxwellHowe Reimer was left alone, due to "swarm defense" as per hockey commentators. Reimer chosen for Team Canada, which still means something.

I see Maurice signed with Jets. They better get a number 1 goalie because Pavelec isn't one. The hound dogs will be nipping at Maurice's heels soon if Pavelec opens the season as their number 1

@CanuckUKinToronto It may not be so cut and dried. If so, Carlyle would have been shown the door like Trotz was. It may be Nonis hanging on to Carlyle and Shanahan sitting on the fence.

I am sure Nonis wants to keep Carlyle. Last night on Sportsnet can't remember who, said Nonis rarely fires coaches. 

So Carlyle's future is in Shanahan's hands.

Apparently Leafs have the second last ranked minor league, prospects. Maybe Shanahan should review amateur scouting ie. Morrison ???!!!

Reimer and Rielly chosen for Team Canada. I like to see Reimer play without breakaways, 2 on 1, and open shots from the slot.

@dlb meh Your correct about finding another center,because Leafs need secondary scoring, if the top line doesn't score.   UFA's available are Bolland and Stastny. Leafs have to target one of these and have to make the right decision. That may be Shanahan's biggest decision.

The term "coach killer" has been applied to various players who do not perform under any coach. How about a term called "player killer" where a coach does not give a player a chance to perform to his strengths, only his weaknesses. 

Certain players on the Leafs had their worst careers ever under Carlyle. Carlyle as a "player killer" seems apt.

@mlclearwater I remember  Alan Stanley who was called "snowshoes" never chased the puck in the corners. He just planted himself in front of goalie Bower. He said the they can never score from the corners.

The poor play and decline of Phaneuf into a 5 or 6 d-man is the most amazing thing I've have seen. Phaneuf is the lightning rod of hate now, and its better for his career if he is moved to a US city. The problem is no US city can afford a salary for a 4th depth D-man. Maybe Edmonton or Winnipeg can take Phaneuf if they send a bad contract back.

If Shanahan is hired by Leafs, Nonis days are numbered. He will have a very short leash. Thats what Burke did to Feaster. Feaster was gone mid season.
