I've been around this forum since the Quinn days, and have been around every leafs coach since Doug Carpenter. There has never, once, been a coach where I've seen the fanbase happy with. Yes I know someone is going to say Burns, but after the 2 magical runs the call in shows and media were souring in him.

So maybe you don't like this but I guarantee whoever is the next coach, you'll find reason not to like them either.

I don't know about this one guys...
I am not super thrilled either. I don't understand trying to win championships in Toronto (Jays and Leafs) with rookie coaches?

How is a coach who's been here for 4 years a rookie?

"Rookie" coach John Cooper comes to mind...

Coaches all have a shelf life. That's just the unfortunate reality of professional sports. The fans like (some) of them for a while - especially if there's an uptick in the team's fortunes - and, once there's any step back or stagnation, we turn on them.

QuoteNumber one, first and foremost, it is my belief — having watched it from the outside and having spent a lot of time with Sheldon in the summer here — that Sheldon is a top coach. I think he is a really, really good coach. He has dug in with this group. I think he is smart. I think he is a great communicator. I think he relates well with the players.

I keep coming back to: When you've got good people, you want to keep them. It made sense to me.
