My point about why good coaches may not want to come to this shit show-  yes Leafs pay well but if you make $700k at a team for 4 yrs then move on and make $800k at the next team for 4 years.. you make 2.8m + 3.2m = $6m in 8 yrs.

Or you can work for the Leafs for 2 yrs- get fired and make $1.5m each yr and make $3m and then remain unemployed or make half of what you would have made elsewhere as an assistant for the rest of your career.


Last Leaf coahes- who went to gaveyard.

Wilson-  not coached in 2 seasons.

Maurice - a successful survivor

Quinn-  out 3 seasons then got one more yr at Edmonton

Mike Murphy - no more head coach jobs

Pat Burns- another survivor to immediate coach

Tom Watt-  last head coaching job

Doug Carpenter-  last headcoaching job

Armstrong-  last headcoaching job

Brophy-  last nhl head coaching job

Dan Maloney- coached 3 more yrs in Winnipeg

Nykoluk-  no more head coaching job

Crozier-  last head coaching job


So there you have it-  4 coaches out of 12 got to coach again in the NHL-  Maurice and Burns successfully for many years.. Leafs have been a coaching graveyard

@NotInsane @NotRealCanuckUK it doesnt pay more if you only work as a coach for 2-3 yrs then NEVER coach again or lose years before getting rehired.. Lets see what happens to Wilson?  How about the prior Leafs that go that way.. 2 yrs of a payday is different than a 20 yr career.. you are fucker

@Leafs2 Isles1 @NotTheCanucksnaphookYou cant look at "this team".. 30-40% has already changed.. you change another 30-40% and do that by trades but also playing your prospects.  which this coach doesnt do.   Who is them?  Kessel, Bozak, Lupul, Dion, Gunnar?  that is your them.. I would move out Gunnar and Lupul and see from there.. then Dion and Bozak if I had to... it is not a one decision or another-  it is not either coach or players.. it is both so you should address both

@Leafs2 Isles1 There are adequate replacements in the market.  Maybe there is not an adequate replacement for the Leafs.. after decisions like this, how many smart/good coaches would commit their career to work for these guys?  think about it.. that is why no suitable replacement. because any that would would say forget these guys.

@Gilbey93 @NotRealCanuckUK I said they had an opportunity to create an excitement... there is no way this team will have an excitement -  due to its record and how the lost the last 3 years.. and how the team was comprised based on the coach

MLSE had an opportunity to create an excitement for the Leafs like the Raptors instead their fan base is disgruntled and will remain to disbelieve even if they have a good start awaiting the impending disaster especially if they start the season with shots against and possession in the bottom 5 in the league.

You know if Gardiner or Kadri get traded people will say it is because of influence by Carlyle.

@loomx @NotTheCanucksnaphook@Cameron19@DWCMLHS Leadership is mgmt to coach to players. Biggest leader chose the coach as the leader to manage on ice action.. They are both clueless.

@Belfour20/JB-45 I agree with that strategy when mgmt and coaching staff have the right strategy, lines, players, system.. when they dont you wonder why it is questioned..also, No one on here refused to blame players.. we blamed both players and coaches and wanted changes to both.. Einstein, let me ask you a question, who is to say that mgmt intend to change the players if they didnt change the coach?  Also is it their way or the highway?  Because Carlyle did NOT coach that way-  when they didnt listen they got the same ice time and not replaced/benched by younger hungrier players from the Marlies.. so why now?

Was just thinking.-  in banking this is the same as Nick Leason losing billions and making Barings go bankrupt, or the SocGen trader, UBS trader.. and giving them 2 year extensions..


Or Dick Fuld of Lehman Bros and when US needed to bail him out, US President says "we know he has a proven track record of "winning/making profit" so we are firing all the product heads and with a government bail out, we are appointing Mr Fuld as new Head of the Fed or Treasury
