I have to take issue with a few people on here. People who said that Kessel should have kept his mouth shut or apologized to the fans for how brutal the team is. Kessel doesn't owe you or anyone else a single solitary thing. Who do you think you are to deserve a single solitary thing? This is a game people...a game. Did he hurt you? Did he hurt your family? Did he steal from you? No to all. If you don't like it...shut it off. Go do something else. Seriously, no one owes you jack squat. Get over it. Entitlement amongst fans appears to be much worse than amongst the players.

@Yak  That's what was happening over the course of the season....opposing coaches used this ability to manipulate Carlyle to their advantage.  The Leafs were for the most part reactionary in their play - rarely dictating the play or imposing their will on the opposition.  And I believe the end result(s) were the consequence of the style of play they were told to play.

I agree about what that would say about the core.  Having said that, I agree with Cam that Carlyle was more concerned about matchups than anything else.  Instead of running 4 lines with an aggressive "hard on the puck approach", he was trying to get his matchups.  When you have a matchup team, there are different messages to different players....and I think that is a losing style nowadays.

It's one thing to play this brand of hockey....it is quite another to translate that into W/L...odd thing to say I realize. But by any other measure BESIDES possession, this team is doing worse than before in GF, GA, and results (yes, very small sample size).

Need to see the style of play translate into the other numbers before I believe.  And even then, will this crew stick to the rewritten script, or go back to ad-libbing?

@Optimustic @BoneChompski @KhoreAchek (formerly 4th collapse) Am I missing something?  Small sample size admittedly, but since Horacheck took over, GAA is up, GF are down, and they've lost 2 out of 3.  In a business that is strictly results oriented, that is not good enough.  Haven't played any real powerhouses yet either....LA perhaps.

@Cameron19 @hometeem @Yaknowwhat Exactly....you play the match-up game to cover up for the flaws in your team.  IMO, the match-up game Carlyle was using created some of the issues we were seeing.

@Yaknowwhat  True.  But if your bosses boss has to go public to resort to motivating the players, it probably means Carlyle was a laughing stock in the room already anyway.
