Agreed. Crap defense, an old 2nd line, and a bottom six that can't help that.

Agreed. But in some cases some fresh blood can energize the troops. Or maybe the Ducks were playing poorly to get their coach fired? I see a team with 4 great players, no 3rd or 4th line and the defense hasn't been good since they got rid of Pronger & Niedermayer and those 2 aren't coming back. When those 2 left they lost their identity.

I wouldn't notice the coaching change. Boudreau and Carlyle look alike.

Then this should settle the dispute on if Boudreau was just in the right place at the right time with Washington, or if he really can coach. If we limp into the playoffs and get bounced in the first round again while Boudreau does what he did in Washington when he first got there, I'll be pissed.

I think you're gonna be pissed. I think the Ducks got what they needed. I think it's comparable to Jon Gruden in the NFL-that type of drill instructor mentality that Carlyle had has a short shelf life.

What if...the Kings hire Carlyle following the inevitable (assuming) firing of TM?

So does everyone share the same feelings now? While I think the DS hiring went better than expected, it's pretty obvious our needs are to score some goals and Boudreau would have been a much better fit for that.

I am disappointed we didn't go for Boudreau, assuming we had an opportunity to do so.

Can you imagine the bag skates with Boudreau as coach... The entire roster would be tired from having to run laps around HIM...

No coach can turn the Kings Seven Forwards that should not be playing, into NHL players.

Come on guys... there's enough rant threads as it is. It's not necessary to be bumping old ones.
