Always been huge fan of Carbo the checking foward...perhaps the best or the second best of all time behind Gainey.
Never been a fan of Carbo as a coach because he tries to coach everyone as though they were checking forwards like himself (amongst other reasons) but against hope, I was hoping that he can put things together as a coach this year and he has in some respects but is still failing in other respects.
Never wanted to try to disrupt the Centennial year Cup possibilities but it looks like the Centennial Cup thing may be a pipe dream without some major shake up.
Perhaps the solution is to get rid of Carbo and bring Bob behind the bench, get a system in place, trade for some key components and throw everything at the wall to see if we can win the Cup.
'Cos face it, Carbo will likely be gone after the season if he fails to at least make a strong run at the Cup and Gainey may not be safe either if this happens.
Perhaps it's time to be proactive and have Bob take the bull by the horn and win or lose the Cup with the team that he built!!!
The old excuse of "Carbo's a new coach give him time" is wearing thin and CH is getting further and furthur away from the Cup...just saying that this is an option because the climate to trade for some player is getting more and more difficult and have not always worked out for the trading team.
