  • Carlysle is history

    David Nonis, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Tuesday morning that head coach Randy Carlyle has been relieved of his duties. Assistant coaches Peter Horachek and Steve Spott will handle coaching duties in the Club's next game Wednesday night as the Leafs host the Washington Capitals.

    I don't think coaching is the problem in Toronto.

    They need to blow up their team and do a proper rebuild. The Kessel trade set them back three years and haunts them. The entire top line doesn't care about defense or winning games, just padding stats. They're wasting over $10M on Lupul and Clarkson. Gardiner and Riley struggle at playing defense and have shown no improvement since coming into the league. Bernier lets in a weak goal every game, and Reimer doesn't even want to be there anymore.

    A problem in Toronto that's not talked about is their inability to develop a prospect. They've traded their picks a lot, but still. They've drafted two players in the past 20 years that have 60+ point seasons with the Leafs.

      You mean to tell me that giving up four goals per game and assuming you're going to score five isn't a sustainable model? Get right outta town!

        Brandon hits the nail on the head, but Carlyle's firing silk doesn't surprise me one bit. Coaches are always the scapegoat. Do they really think another coach will right the ship?

            Yeah, exactly. I don't even think Carlyle is a great coach. But how many coaches are you going to go through, and give the players a free pass?

            This is what I mean. You make $8M a year. Suck it up, stop dodging the media after losses and freaking out at them, and take some of the blame. Their entire top line only cares about putting up points and getting a bigger paycheque. No responsibility.

              It didn’t take long to for the Toronto Maple Leafs firing of head coach Randy Carlyle on Jan. 6 to ramp up the Leafs trade speculation. Before the day was over the Toronto media was ruminating over which Leafs were most likely to hit the trade block.

              Leafs GM Dave Nonis fuelled the conjecture during the press conference announcing Carlyle’s firing, pointing out his players were “moveable” while noting none had full no-move clauses. TSN’s Darren Dreger went one step further, claiming all the Leafs players were “potential trade targets.”

              Speaking with TSN 1050 soon after the coaching change was announced, Dreger said it will be interesting to see if Nonis and team president Brendan Shanahan still believe in their core players, specifically captain Dion Phaneuf, top liners Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak, as well as center Nazem Kadri and pending UFA defenseman Cody Franson.

                Carlyle was at his brother-in-law's funeral when Nonis called him. Carlyle is also having back issues and will be going under the knife shortly. From the sounds of it, he really couldn't care less about leaving the blue team. hashtagEscapeFromT.O

                  Pretty low of Nonis to choose a timing like that.

                    1-3 under the new coach, and they haven't scored a goal in almost three games.

                    When will the players have to take responsibility?
