Hopefully, this helps Kule's career. We almost played like a non-contact sport under Wilson.

Either that or they turn themselves into scoring stars and actually start earning their pay cheques.

I don't think he'll have to change anything. Kessel just has continue to play defense till he gets it into his DNA.

Teemu doesn't hit anyone, he played just fine under RC because he is responsible on D.

No more Komisarek out in the final minute trying to tie the game up.

Kessel's game is not to hit players. He plays a Selanne, Andy Mcdonald type game. Those players played well for Carlyle. Skill players will play their game, and muckers will play theirs. Not all players are expected to hit and fight, but players like Luke Schenn and Coby Armstrong. They are now more valuable under Carlyle than they were under Wilson.

Very enjoyable PC, a lot of issues addressed. Was very surprised he took full accountability and also that Burke said Ron doesn't like a rough team. I mean we all saw that, I kept harping on the complete lack of forecheck and check finishing. I HOPE so badly that this changes

Thank you Ron Wilson. At least you get a pay cheque for the next year!

Why anyone would want this is beyond me. Last thing we need is for him to get hurt on a team that won't respond.

What were they showing? Nik Borschevsky's winner in OT vs the Wings in 1993. For the thousandth time.

I really contend that's what really got the thought going in Burke's head. He said he didn't want to put Ron through another home game. That spoke VOLUMES to me.

I really think those chants helped a lot. Burke knows that this team will be lucky to get a 2 game win streak going with the way they are playing.

Every loss is going to trigger a Fire Wilson chant and the longer he waited the longer the Leafs and Burke will be criticized.

I do agree though.. we just fell off a cliff. Even if we won 3 of those 10 games we lost, we're in 8th at the moment. That's how bad it was.

Roenick's whinging aside if a player isn't working as hard as he could then too bad for him.

So Wilson was gone before the Hawks game, they just had to get their coach.

Crawford was an option.

Eakins does not have experience, and honestly does not have a record that jumps out at you and says I'm a winner.
