As long as these new guys can decrease the amount of goals going in our own net then I couldn't care less if they have a bit less of a shooting percentage.

@Burtonboy I hate Simmons but I like seeing that. I've felt like Charron is a doucher. but now that he's working for the leafs I hope I'm proven wrong.

@vinoa @Rthiffault hope you're right. I can picture Shanny dropping the gloves with Carlyle on this topic, which would be awesome to watch.

@vinoa except that Carlyle uses the depth guys to squash the young guys icetime.

@Reether @Bruffins agreed with Bozak there. He's really starting to come into his own. If he can add some gamebreaking ability to his game people might finally agree he's a top liner.

@peterbleafs @silvermaple If he's gone. it will be totally indicative of their record and start. which in that case I wouldn't want him around anyway. This team has to keep improving. Even if its only inches at a time.

@Cameron19 @Ze_theLeafsFan doesnt mean they cant fire him. he'll just get an extra year of pay which is probably all that he really wanted. Coaches demands...

@Ze_theLeafsFan @Rthiffault same here. I just read Pat Burns book written by Rosie DiManno (I know she's a tool but it was actually a great read).  and he used to drill his guys really hard wearing them totally out and by three years they stopped listening on each of his teams and he got fired in Mtl, Tor and Bos. Until he realized if he worked with them a little more positively they'd respond which came to NJ when he won his cup.  I know Carlyle is NO Pat Burns, but he is also that motivating type of coach. he's no deep player analyst or anyhting. If he can learn better ways to motivate, it might actually work.

I'm curious if Carlyle will turn a new page this season. Now that he clearly knows his job is quite close to the bandsaw he hopefully will reflect and come up with some new ways to get the players motivated. I remember when he just started with the Leafs and he knew what his previous reputation was so he started off trying to be as positive as possible to help motivate the guys and it really worked considering how they played themselves into the playoffs.

@Anthony Petrielli they've for sure given frattin the vote of confidence. The safe bet about it is his size and skating ability.

something I am liking the sound of is a line of Lupul-Kadri-Frattin. It just feels really balanced with Grit, scoring and skating.

I was just thinking and I feel like Legwand might not be the best idea anymore. Carlyle loves guys like that and I can totally see him overtaking minutes from Kadri and Holland even if he's playing like dirt. I'd like to trade Franson for a Dman or another fwd instead at this point.
