This team clearly needs a shakeup. I hope it's just a slump, but I see no effort at all and honestly if you take away shootouts we're 12-10.

I'm not trying to be an overreacting fan with "FIRE CARBO NOW!" rants, but I'm just wondering when you guys think he'll actually be in danger.

Would Bob really fire our coach in the 100th season? Imagine the media..they'd have a field day with that imo.

How much longer does this have to go on before you think something gets done?

Carbs can be a good coach but the man makes some stupid, stupid ****in decisions.

Let's just say he gets fired, do you think Muller can take over?

I want Ted Nolan or Gainey behind the bench. Hell, I might even take Don Lever at this point.

We'd probably have to miss the playoffs for that to happen.

But I think Carbo would do a lot better with a team full of pluggers. I really don't know if he can manage this lineup to its potential. He got a ton of help last year from Kovalev and the powerplay.

i will be VERY disapointed in the CH organization if Carbo and/or Gainey get fired. In the past years we have fired tons of coaches when the problem was the players. The last 3 coaches we fired are each 1st in their respective divisions.

The problem is the players! not carbo.

IMO

Gainey will NOT fire Carbo. He'll step down before he'll do it.

I think unlike most GM's, Gainey would react with a trade rather than fire Carbo. Im pretty sure Carbo is here to stay for quite some time.

yea but don't tell this to the herd. They saw some weird lines and immediately want to fire the coach. The players gave 0 effort but it's all the coach's fault! I've heard that one oh so many times before

Great, just misinterpret everything that has been said to make you sound like a true internet hero.

I want him gone now. His BS is starting to wear over, maybe he could bring in, God even John Tortorella, or Pat Burns.

SOMEONE ****, a competent coach.

I wouldn't say he needs to be fired, but I was unimpressed with his absurd attempt to send a message.

With eight minutes left in a three goal game you can still win, you DO NOT send your fourth line out on the powerplay. That was a joke.

I know what he was trying to do, but all I (and the players I bet) heard was "we surrender."

if you're going to talk crap to me at least explain how I misinterpreted anything that was said. Have people not gone nuts with "fire carbo" tonight after seeing the 3rd period lines? please prove me wrong.

And what is an "internet hero"?

you clearly didn't read the original post.

I just wanted a discussion about how long this would have to go on before his job is in danger.

I never said "oMGZZ FiRE caRBOS!!!!!!1111one"

He has Dandeneult in the lineup. Gheez. There are way betters players in Hamilton then him. He should have been put on waivers before the start of the season. Why they keep him I don't know.

I think i've found the problem.

Kovalev is the utter most selfish player on the team. Last year he was the clear "superstar" of the team and was expected to lead every night. This year its changed and I really think it pissed him off, his line became sorta the 2nd line, Koivu, Tangs are better then him etc... He's such a selfish player.
