Bullshit. A couple bad years at the end of generations of the best ever.

He was also obe of the most dynamic forwards in hus time except he was overshadowed by Lemieux and Gretzky and then made a commitment to be a two-way player when everyone else at the time was too busy with g's and a's.

He would be one of the top 3 or 4 best players in the league right now if he was still in his prime.

Why is it a close call on Stamkos exactly? He's a generational talent, probably unmatched outside of Crosby, and sometimes Ovechkin and Malkin.

Mainly due to bad trade deals we've signed over the years which forced everyone into offering cheaper labour and governments to bend over backwards. Poor billion dollar companies need all the breaks they can get to keep those share prices high and the expenses where they belong: externalized.

Thought Reinhart was top of the rankings?

He can do a pull up, right? I mean that doesn't affect his draft position, but I wouldn't want to draft a professional athlete that is pathetically weak...

You don't get it. It's linear, Spott doesn't choose his system, he employs Carlyle's so that if we call anyone up they already know the system.

Burke put that system in place when he came over. Red Wings amongst others do the same with their farm teams.

I'd hire him. But it's not a happening. They're in the second round, made it to the finals last year, won the cup few years ago and we didn't fire Carlyle.

I don't like or dislike Mirtle. He's got points I agree with and then others.

3 months, 2 weeks ago on Carlyle Returns

It's funny how different things happen in different seasons, eh Mirtle? What a stupid argument. Grabo isn't a saviour for any team. MacArthur is good, but he wouldn't have altered our fortunes all that much either.

The systems sucked. But so did the leadership. We have talent.

We've got talent. I'm not sure that's the issue. We need a better blend.

He's saying that Leaf fans have blown him out of proportion, saying he's better than he really is, and then being tremendously disappointed when they find out he isn't. I personally am not a huge fan, at least not in the role he has, but I never really bought in either.

I don't care too much if he gets traded. But I'd like it to be West.

The team needs some serious tweaking but we trade everyone we'll become the Oilers, and there's no guarantees that they'll ever be good.

Keep the top 3 or 4 wingers. We've got some serious talent on the wing. Tweak the rest of the team. Leave the up and comers on D.

I wasn't a big fan of Carlyle this year, but I loved the team the year before. Here's hoping that we see that sort of effort next year.

And if nothing else it'll be good for the players to know that they have no choice but to tune in, especially since they're a young group.

If nothing else another year will mean the youth will be better next year. And all of the players had better come out hungry after this fiasco.

No point whining about it.

Any ideas on who the assistant coaches might be? I'm kind of hoping for Spott to get a look.

Suppose that's a kick in the chops to whomever tuned him out at the end.

Still, thought he'd be fired. I have a real hard time getting all fucking riled up when there's no hockey for months though.
