How many years did they sign Carlyle for in 2016? I remember reading someone on here say they only gave him a one or two year deal in 2016, because of his age at the time.
this is his last year
Jack Hughes is gonna love it in Anaheim.
Oh my goodness I still remember this guy lol...
Team option to extend... Ugh.....
Can’t see Carlyle surviving that one. That was a cry for help
Love getting Pettersson from them. Last 5 games Pettersson has points in each.
5 games 6 points and +10. He doesn’t play like a rookie. Loved his game in his first 14 games with the Pens but he just has taken it to another level lately.
As much as Carlyle blows fat maggoty chunks this was a long time coming Duck fans. Before the Golden Knights won the Pacific division last year it was the Anaheim Ducks 5 years in a row.
Embrace the slow long glide to the gutter. Pick top 10 a couple years and get right back to doing what you do. Don't know what's to be done with Kesler and Perry though. Get rid of that garbage anyway you can.
3-0 worst lead in hockey
Trying to dig up sympathy and having as much success as those who tried to find Jimmy Hoffa's body.
Carlyle has to get sacked now. The losses against the Oilers, Sens, and Penguins were all pathetic in different ways
Thanks. So I think he's at least gone after this year, if not tomorrow or before the end of the year. If he hasn't been extended yet and he's already a lame duck and with recent results, I can't see him coming back.
I can't see them extending him after all this. Even if they keep him for the remainder of the season. When it comes to an option year, I don't think they're obligated to pay him a penny if they don't bring him back after this year. And with this year's results, especially of recent, I don't see them using them exercising that option year.
At the very least, they might respectfully let him step down and retire at season's end. I can't see him getting an NHL job again after this, at least not as a head coach. And not to mention that he's already in his 60's and with the way his Leafs tenure went and his latest Ducks tenured, he wouldn't be a hot commodity like Hitchcock still has been, who was making the playoffs every year in St. Louis before he was fired. I honestly thought his NHL head coaching career would have already been over for 4 years, if the Ducks hadn't hired him back in 2016.
This is a masterpiece. Mods preserve this for future generations so that they may copypasta it forever. For the memes will never foresake us.
Yea and amen
I feel like this game has happened to the Ducks too many times this year, only with a different result. Either a close and respectable loss (and with no 3 goal blown lead), due to Gibson's goaltending or even some wins due to Gibson.
I thought Gibson let in a couple of goals he usually has in tonight's game and on the rare occasion that Gibson does not stand on his head, this is what happens. Maybe he's finally on Carlyle, although this was his worst game in a while. He's looked pretty good in most of the games on this losing streak, even the 4 goal against game to Edmonton. He may have let in one poor goal to Arizona in that 5 goal goal against game a couple weeks back.
Gibson has preserved Carlyle's job for quite some time. There's no doubt in my mind that Anaheim plays the worst team defense and structure in the league outside of maybe Ottawa. No John Gibson and I really think there's a lot of talk about how much of a dumpster fire Anaheim is under Carlyle.
I almost created a new thread just to post this, as I felt it would be a waste in the GDT, but I wanted to wait and see if someone else would make a Carlyle thread or another Ducks thread or if one would get bumped and luckily this one was!
I don’t know why you’re bringing up Perry to be honest. He hasn’t even played this season and the seasons before he’s been fine. Still getting points, not the same guy he was before but not as bad as Kesler.
I feel like perry gets unfairly lumped in with Kesler in terms of worst contracts on the team that we need to dump/buy out.
I had too much fun with his material back when this was all going on in 2011. I even feel just a little bit bad for all the poor souls that got duped into selling off everything and depleting everything they had for his cause.
You have my endorsement. It works on every level
Keep your filthy mouth away from our draft pick!
RC and BM both need to go. Two morons in a pod.
I don't see Anaheim as a contender right now, but I absolutely did when Carlyle was hired and I think that's when the mistake was made. Never understood this hire in the first place.
Thought I woke up in 2005 when I saw they had hired him again in 2016.
I acknowledged that Carlyle wasn't bad enough to keep them from making the playoffs, as they were too talented not to be in and would make them in spite of him. Carlyle and other bad coaches have even won the cup before, so I didn't think it meant they'd finish outside of the playoffs when he was first hired. They even made the conference finals and I absolutely believe they could have gotten past Nashville and into the SCF with someone better than him. Since they lost Gibson to injury that series, they may not have been able to overcome that in the SCF with a better coach and Jonathan Bernier choking out in the SCF, but I think they get there without Carlyle.
You could argue that Bob Murray hasn't been bad in Anaheim, but you can also argue they've underachieved a bit during his tenure and the re-hiring of Carlyle was a complete waste.
It's really frustrating because we had a coach prior (Bruce) that found ways to get the most out of his players. He changed things up when they weren't working and won the division with teams not as good on paper as this one. Granted he struggled in the playoffs, but he had them playing well enough to get there, and players knew what they were doing. ESPECIALLY OUR DEFENSEMEN!!!
The team now stands around on defense. No one covers their man, they all puck watch and don't move their feet.
Randy is terrible. Murray is terrible. Both must go. Randy for being a bad coach and Murray for keeping him on so long. No excuses.
