From the Toronto Star:

Quote:
When the club was looking for a coach to replace Ron Wilson in the grim days when last season transformed itself into a lost season, NHL sources say Nonis went to bat for Dallas Eakins, then and now the coach of the AHL Marlies. Nonis and other front-office executives were of the belief that Eakins is everything a modern-era coach should be; progressive but hard-nosed, communicative with players but never friends with them. Burke, of course, insisted on his old friend Randy Carlyle. And though Carlyle certainly deserves a chance to prove himself in the coming 48-game season, the early returns on his tenure — six wins in 18 games after taking over for Wilson in March — suggest the old-school taskmaster may not be the best fit for one of the NHL’s youngest collections of athletes.
Maybe Carlyle is the domino waiting to drop.

Nonis wants to wait until he has a good enough reason to fire Carlyle... then he'll bring in the Lou and Eakins.

Awesome. When Moulson scored and the scrum happens, hes celebrating with his arms up and grabs JVR while celebrating. Look like he grabbed the wrong team if you didnt know a scrum was happening.

The Leafs send Gardiner down to the Marlies.

Need to get him caught up again. I thought he often looked confused last night.

Some tough pills for the Leaf fans to swallow these days.

Second, although neither team is all that good, really, the game was *fun* to watch. Frankly, considerably more *fun* than a typical game from our boys. I think there is something to be said for cheering a team that has to "overcome" to win games, to outperform.
that celey was Fleury like lol.

Yeah, except Yakupov's was game three of the regular season. I don't have a problem with his celebration because after all, he is Russian; it should be expected.

Who are these "robots" you speak of? Most players celebrate when they score. Just because they don't go sliding on their knees across center ice doesn't mean they're robots...

Agreed. I used to see him a lot at house parties during high school and he was "the" biggest tool.

Yakupov's celebration is fine for fans and whatnot, but if I were a player on the opposing side, I'd remember it and I'd **** him up first chance I got and I'd be sure to let him know that's why.

After the Kings passed around the Stanley Cup before their first game of the season, they don't have any room to complain about rubbing it in with celebrations. In this case, I give Yakupov a pass.

Is this unique to the Kings though?
