2. Randy Carlyle is the first Leaf bench boss to have a Stanley Cup ring on his finger from coaching since Punch Imlach.

27. Only one NHL coach has won more post-season games than Carlyle’s 36 since 2005-06, that being Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings.

Usually the Sun puts up terrible reads, but this one was pretty interesting to read.

Because he's the 28th coach in Maple Leaf history.

What I thought was interesting..

Quote:
7. Carlyle isn’t the type of coach that spends a lot of time in the dressing room, feeling that space belongs to the players. “Some coaches like to control the room as well as everything else,” said goalie J-S Giguere during his days between the pipes with the Carlyle-coached Ducks. “We’re pretty much being told what to do, whether it’s on the ice or at the hotel or stuff like that. But the room is ours. We have enough leadership in the dressing room that we don’t need to have the coach overseeing it.” With Carlyle keeping his nose out of the room, it will be time for Leaf leaders like captain Dion Phaneuf to step up.
Good read, I linked it to twitter

Thanks for the heads up. Good read.

"10. If first impressions are any indicator, Carlyle made a good one in his introduction as Maple Leafs coach on Saturday when he said he made a “mistake” by not using Joffrey Lupul as left winger on one of the team’s first two lines when both men were in Anaheim with the Ducks last season. A coach who admits he screwed up? Who didn’t blame the media (at least in this case)? Really?"

It's a rarity that anyone actually admits when they're wrong (especially a 50+ year old guy). When I saw this in the interview...respect.

That could be really good or really bad. Depends how the leaders on our team respond, that's a lot of pressure on someone like Phaneuf, let's hope he steps up and puts the leafs into playoffs. Go leafs go!

17. Up until this season in Anaheim, Carlyle had never endured a losing season as a coach, either in the National Hockey League or the American Hockey League.

Did not know that, sounds pretty promising.

Well, I guess he will need to use that experience from the get go. Leafs need playoffs like performance even to get to playoffs.

Look at that track record, wow.

I wonder if any team offered him a position with their organization before we did?
