ESPN: Depth paying off for flying Ducks
 
http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/89...xplosive-start

Nice article. It's nice finally getting at least a bit of recognition. Huge Pierre LeBrun fan.

I enjoyed it too. LeBrun has always done a nice job covering the Ducks.

Thankfully LeBrun (accidentally put Lebron :laugh:) has an admitted soft spot for the Ducks or 6-1-1 goes completely unnoticed by national media. Unless you consider @mirtle to be national media. He gave us a little shoutout.

"All those young guys are going to be good players. But you can only learn by playing them and letting them make mistakes and hoping the mistakes don't cost you."

Almost the exact opposite of the Carlyle philosophy in his time with the Ducks.

I love how hockey is the only sport where ESPN doesn't have they're own writers, but instead they borrow the TSN guys.

IIRC, ESPN owns part of TSN, like 25%.

Why do you keep saying this Carlyle played plenty young players
Including developing RPG into superstars. They are lazy players but he knew how to make them put effort

Because it's true. I never once said Carlyle's philosophy was wrong, or not effective, it was just different.

TSN hired LeBrun from ESPN ;)

In a way I agree I can't say many players were affected by Carlyle during his time in Anaheim. Though he never played 4 lines effectively which held some of our players back. His system was not meant for the Ducks since many of the young players we have are highly skilled players that need tons of time to grow.
