@ingy56 @XxxxxnewBad goaltending by Lindback even makes good players like Stamkos look poor,  simple fact poor goaltending makes superstars look pitiful.

I have noticed that the playoff teams cover point shots, so that the D-men just don't blast away at the goalies. How I wish that will be the case next season, with the Leafs.

@Bruffins @dlb meh@wendelsway1Average goal-tending also makes Stamkos the scrap goat for the team.

I am still upset that Rick Dudley left the Leafs for the Habs. I think he butted heads with the current Leaf scouting staff, and decided its best to leave. Dudley seems to spot talent, something Leafs lack.

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.

@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.
