You guys need to realize that we at least have a smart coach who can recognize decision-making errors. Kadri only played 9 minutes in the first game, and Carlyle took full responsibility and said he should've gave him more. He called out JvR and Grabo and they've been good ever since. This past Saturday, he recognized his mistake of overplaying Phaneuf. He also moved JvR to the first line now. Most of the moves that Leaf fans have been wanting to see, he's been making. I think it's only a matter of time too before he brings Kostka down to 2nd/3rd pairing duty. The difference between him and Wilson is night and day.
Agreed. He hasn't been hesitant to change things around if they weren't working. Now he just needs to get Kostka off the PP.
It's nice to see a coach who isn't afraid to admit when he's wrong. I don't think I've ever heard Wilson do that.

Well, since you ask...
Komarov-McClement-Frattin may be decent in a shutdown role.
