With the playoffs out of view and Lupul's injury, surely some of the kids will see some minutes, notably Carter.
What a crazy season in terms of personnel decisions, both on-ice and off (e.g. Clarkson contract); I am ok with Nonis for a bit, despite outrageous Clarkson deal, but RC has to go, and I agree with AP, changing forward group is critical. Reimer was totally mishandled, and his value is pretty limited right now I expect; sure Bernier was great, but total mismanagement of assets. Grabo was also totally miscast and run out of town via RC. Fourth line was non-existent, sign Mclaren and Orr and not play them and not replace them. A lot of young guys missed some serious NHL development time too. Frustrating year all around. Nonis certainly deserves some blame, but I see this as RC's mess.
I'd like to see Kule stay at a reasonable price, but if Bolland wants anything north of $4 million, which sounds like he'll get it, then he surely can't stay; Bodie was also a cheap, pleasant surprise. The outs are obvious I think with Raymond, Reimer, Franson most notable.

@dontcallmeshirley @Cameron19 It's not a matter of "better", less stubborn would probably do because things haven't been working with this group from day 1, yet there has been little change in the approach of this team. And this no playing the 4th line or kids, wtf? Leafs are at a stage where they should be developing kids, RC was coaching for his job from Day 1 of this season I believe. Seems it didn't help though, buh-bye RC.

@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @traNsplantEdneWfie So your philosophy is no one wants the job, which seems highly unlikely, so let's keep RC?

Surely Carlyle is done, I just don't think this guy is the right coach for this team. The roster seems largely set for the foreseeable future, so let's get a coach with a philosophy that matches the talents and personalities.
