Carlyle has been really good, totally transformed this team. It's not his fault that Scrivens (as well as most of the team) was awful yesterday. I like what Carlyle is doing. My only complaint is that his style is a little boring. Phil doesn't fit in with Carlyle's style of play at all. A 2-way young, strong player like Voracek would fit in much better.
Which is why, if we ever decide to trade Kessel (mind you, I love Phil), I'd like to see Phil for Voracek++.
NOTE THE ++, PLEASE.
I also see Eakins taking over for Carlyle in a couple years if we continue to suck. He's such a good developmental coach. He's great with his players- it's so much easier to listen to a coach emphasize fitness who is a fitness FREAK. He brings young players together so well.
