Dont know about that....shanny and dubas are smart but both have zero prior experience running an NHL franchise....they might want to keep Nonis around for awhile...

If Bernier stays healthy...we avoid key injuries up front... we see a positive improvement in the bottom six...and our two new assistant coaches can tighten up some areas... I think it entirely possible that we can make the playoffs in the 7-8 slot.....now.....on the flip side...if none of those things happen...it could get ugly...

Spott says its the same system so I'll take his word for it....and if Spott didnt think it could work with this group wouldn't he speak up? I agree with you that Spott had better players to execute that type of system...but that has always been part my point...the Leafs simply didnt have the players to execute that system....and I think thats what they tried to address in the offseason....bringing in more depth and sandpaper so Carlyle has a better chance of executing his game plan...we'll see if it works....but I believe this is what Shanny and Nonis tried to do with the off season additions...

Whats your take on Spotts use of the same system yet with success?

As I said Carlyle deserves some of the blame....I'm not disputing that....but it was more than just him and a questionable system...player personnel...injuries...and lack of depth... all played a role....I often wonder what the Carlyle detractors are going to say if the team has success this season....One thing for sure none of the credit will go to Carlyle...

Interesting article...but the entire piece assumes that the Leafs defensive problems were strictly the fault of Carlyle and his failed swarm strategy....I'm not sure we can come to that conclusion yet...first off lets remember that Carlyle inherited Cronin and Gordon who were likely a big part of this as well....and we also need to ask ourselves if Carlyle had the right players throughout the lineup to successfully execute his game plan...a shallow group of bottom six forward options comes to mind...as does a defense with two young inexperienced defenders in Gardiner and Reilly...and two other defenders battling injuries in Franson and Gunnarson...I won't even mention the key injuries we suffered at center and between the pipes at critical times last season....and one other thing that is very important to note is that Steve Spott supports the swarm system and seemed to have great success using a similar strategy with the Marlies...perhaps this provides some hope that this strategy can be successful with the right personnel and some minor adjustments......I don't want to let Carlyle off the hook because he most certainly deserves some of the blame and honestly I thought he would get fired....but there is a tendency to blame Carlyle for everything that went wrong with this team last season and I don't think thats entirely fair or accurate...

@Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat @Jay_Berg  In the Hawks case..maybe...maybe not...but leadership is even more important to teams who don't have a high talent level...and have a lot of young players...players who need an example to follow....and somebody who can show them the right way to play....and how to behave off the ice....leadership still matters...and there is nothing wrong with identifying your leader...

@ingy56 @Yaknowwhat  Of course you don't need a letter...but why not have one? why not show the team and the fan base that you are formally recognizing and rewarding a player for demonstrating those qualities??  There is nothing wrong with identifying who your leader or leaders are....most organizations and teams do that....not sure why its bad for us...

@ingy56 @Yaknowwhat  Not entirely...I just think a captain should have 3 qualities....the ability to impact a game...via a hit...a goal...or even a fight....also think he needs to be one of or the hardest workers and most consistent players for the team..(sets the example for others to follow).....and above that....he must have integrity and character......

@ingy56 @Jay_Berg  The C meant something to guys like Keon,Sittler,Clark and Gilmour....I still think in can matter....you need a leader...someone who can set and example and change the direction of the game....but if you have a captain who can't do those things...yeh its pretty useless...
