You are a delight!
You should see me at parties. I of am awesome at them.
Terrible hiring from the start. Lost season barring a miracle
Your owner.. Your captain.. Your coach
Unfortunate for Carlyle because he isn't the root cause, but man that is a bonehead move by Murray. All he has to do is sign one of many stopgap coaches for the year. Unless ownership told him "you go down there and fix it yourself or you're fired" then I see no reason for him to pretend he can run the bench. As much as WD pisses everyone in LA off, having him behind the bench is far better than Blake up and saying "I'll run this ****!" and tanking things.
Hall of shame post
Yeah guys make sure you use grammar correctly or some random Schlub on the internet will shame you.
I keep seeing claims like this and I really hate the cliche but I can really only assume anyone saying this hasn't been watching the team play at all.
Yes the roster is poor relative to past years but not so poor to be putting up historically bad stats.
Is it weird that I read this in Idubbbz' voice?
Ah clearly you are capable of being HC then?
Pretty ironic considering the thread you just started...
I don't think he's a bad coach, but this move basically had to be made.
Murray as coach should be interesting.
I take that as a compliment haha
I think that's probably what happened. He probably is hoping just being a different communicator will spark a change instead of riding out Carlyle for the end of the season. He picked a great time to step in though, literally can only go up. They're in the mix still, I actually think they can turn it around.
He's going to coach because he is fully aware this season is lost and wants to keep it that way, not hire some interim coach desperate to prove he has what it takes to remain a coach at this level.
He makes sure the tank for Hughes and Kappo is still on while getting a close look at who are the biggest problems he needs to deal with and not throwing Eakins to the wolves and letting him continue to work with their Anaheim's young players before hiring him in the offseason to a better situation for success.
I wish nothing, but terrible things on that franchise with the type of players they have targeted over the years. Kesler, Bieksa, Perry, etc...
Murray is a problem too
I assume Carlyle will be back coaching eventually right? I think by the start of next season at the latest he will be coaching again.
There are plenty of dirty players around the league. Name a franchise, I'll give you the reason why you can't like them .
If they could get quinville they’ll be a contender again next season
This could be huge for the Avs tank!
Oilers suck the last couple months probably makes McLellan's resume look very attractive.
The problem is you can’t get rid of the “aging” players.
Getz, Perry, Kesler, and Eaves all have contracts that can’t be moved or nobody wants. Our ownership will not want to buy out anyone most likely, so our moveable assets are the same ones you build around.
Silfv should be trade bait unless he gives Anaheim a sweetheart deal.
Fowler could be moved. We have puck movers, and some decent prospects, but nobody has shown to do what Cam can do YET.
Henriques deal is going to be interesting. He’s not producing right now in a bad situation, but I wouldn’t question his effort when I watch. He’s high IQ and responsible while having a semi questionable contract. If someone wanted him for a competitive team I’d have no problem moving him, but he will be useful should he stay.
Manson is valuable, and if we retool he’ll be older, but we can’t replace him from within, and obviously the interest in him shows it’s not easy to find guys like him.
While I don’t think ANYONE is above being shopped, our big money guys are an albatross unless Getz can stay healthy and perrys surgery and recovery allows him to at least be solid veteran 2nd liners if we can find good center prospects to go with our pretty solid young depth guys
Too little too late. It was bound to happen. Is Carlyle done coaching in the NHL? Time will tell. I think a team will eventually hire him. Murray will finish off the season behind the bench and than if they follow through with their plans Eakins should be coaching them next season.
Saw them live vs the Senators and they are horrific. He's a dinosaur but what was he supposed to do with that lineup?
This thread probably should have happened about 25 games ago.
