@ingy56 @Yaknowwhat  I know Carlyle isn't perfect....but I just refuse to pin all the blame on him....cup winning coach...Norris winning dman...the man has to know something about hockey....and lets remember the injuries last season were out of his control...they need the players need to buy in this season.....that means back checking....upping the compete level every shift...and blocking shots and grinding to win those close games....I think a lot of the guys they brought in can play that type of hockey....so we'll see how things unfold..I'm willing to give Carlyle one more shot....but I think he knows....his leash is very short..

@ingy56 @Yaknowwhat  Carlyle knows he's on thin ice....Shanny will not put up with any funny business from him.....he's already axed a couple of asst gm's so he won't hesitate to turf a  failing coach... Spott and Horacheck are waiting in the wings....Carlyle either plays the players Shanny gave him and gets results......or he's gone...if this team is below .500 after 25-30 games I bet Randy's toast.....(no pun intended)

@ingy56 @Yaknowwhat  I have my fears about Carlyle as well....but when I look back at last year....I realized a few things....first injuries were huge....especially at center....and Bernier getting hurt at the most critical part of the season likely cost us our playoff spot.....our 3rd and 4th line options weren't great last year....Carlyle had few players in the bottom 6 he could really count on to hold leads, eat minutes and grind down the opposition...and so he over played and wore down the top two lines...that's changed this year with alot of the additions....he has real options now...and if he doesn't use them I think he will be canned early on...If Bernier stays healthy....and our young players take the next step...I think we are a playoff team....we're not cup contenders by any means...but 93pts and 7th place is attainable for this group.....(gulps down kool-aid)

Good stuff David...but to me this reinforces the many variables of these individual advanced stats....for starters....how much time on ice each did these players get? what was the quality of their line mates? what role was expected of them from their previous team\coach?...were these guys put on the ice to score? or to hold leads and play strong defensively? my guess is the later for the most part...


I think we all agree....scoring was not the Leafs problem....holding onto a lead....and keeping the puck out of their own net was....most of the guys brought in seem to be hard working,defensively responsible players for the most part....not guys who are going to score a ton of goals...


I would like to see the overall time on the ice stat for each player, hits, blocked shots and the plus\minus stat each player (additions as compared to the players we moved out)...this might give us a better idea if the new players are going to be able to play effectively defensively...which I think was the goal Shanny and Nonis had in mind....

What really makes me sick is 70-80% of league revenues come from the Canadian teams....and we pay the freight for these struggling franchises in the U.S....friggin joke really... and he wants to add more?

@MaxwellHowe  I would still be surprised if Polak sticks with the number one pairing....they may try him there...but I think eventually Gardiner or Reilly take that spot...but is there a huge difference between Polak and Gunnar? probably not much...
