Excuse me Mr. Glass-is-half-empty.  Here's something to put in your pipe:  Not once have the Leafs been outplayed by Boston since Carlyle has been at the helm.  The Canucks haven't even beaten us.  That, my friend, is a step in the right direction!   :P

That's true. The Leafs haven't lose a game since they hired Carlyle. Sign this man to an extension!

Good start. If they manage to play like this and win against Boston I'm on the playoff is doable bandwagon...
Go Leafs Go!!!

Nice to see the Leafs skate for 60 minutes. Don't know how much Carlyle had to do with it but if the absence of Wilson did then.......fantastic.

Weird that the second Wilson is gone, Grabovski almost gets a hat trick.

Carlyle actually has a pretty decent track record in teaching teams defence but that was seriously boosted by Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger.  Read more in this blog I wrote for the site... http://www.tmlfans.ca/blogs/5375-carlyle-needs-to-teach-the-leafs-defence#more-5375

Good article Kevin, I'd say our defensive core right now is better than the one in Anaheim post Neids and Pronger.  So if he can get us to around 15th or better in both stats I'd be impressed.

Bleeding Blue & White

Honestly I was really impressed with Carlyle's first game but it made me realize just how bad of a coach Wilson was.  Things like actively talking to your players during the game and actually addressing them after a game (something I just assumed Ron Wilson did because I thought it was the coach's job) shouldn't be impressive.  Matching lines and playing solid defence shouldn't be impressive but it is when you are used to Wilson.

Obviously pleased Wilson is gone. glad Eakins is where he is , coaching the baby Buds to the Calder Cup.
i like carlyle´s style and his pedigree  is impeccable.
My one reservation is his philosophy on 3rd line players being blue collar workers. I think the game has changed and you need more of a 2 way player on the 3rd line , you need some offence.  Having said that I like the move of kulemin on the 3rd line. kulie is a  great 2 way player.

According to Siegel, Pat Quinn wouldn't address the team after games either.

QuoteOne notable and immediate difference between Wilson and Carlyle was the latter's decision to speak with the team afterward. "I always do," Carlyle said. "I want them to leave the rink [and] know how I felt about their performance." Schooled under Pat Quinn – who operated in a similar manner – Wilson rarely if ever addressed his team following a game, win or lose. Said Frattin of Carlyle's message post-game, "He thought we played a pretty good game, but we've just got to get back at practice and start working on our systems."

And i'll drive.   8)        Note to mods # why not change the post name to "the Coach" it would be a bit more classy then fire Carlyle.....

I'm not sure how, for what or why but I blame Wilson, Larry Murphy, Ballard, Frasier, and JFJ.

shaky start .. strong finish, same old leafs.. That game could have went either way, we're lucky Montreal is last place. I'll give Carlyle at least 3 more games before I start calling for his head though... hopefully we go on a crazy win streak!

If this is in regards to the thread title, nobody seemed to mind when it was made up for Wilson. It addresses the two opposite opinions a Maple Leafs fan often has of a coach/player/prospect/GM, while being just a little bit funny. So yeah, no problems here about that. If this was concerning something else or you're still upset, please send a PM to a mod.

Also, please don't use profanity on the site. It doesn't matter if you don't include the last 3 letters, everybody knows what it means.
