With the leafs mired in 29th place.....Last Place in Penalty Kill......Last Place in Power Play....26th in Goals Scored.....29th in Goals allowed I can't help but think about our coaching situation a little bit.
I like Ron Wilson and he hasn't had much to work with in Toronto but I still feel that these guys might not be drinking his kool-aid.
We all know Ken Hitchcock is available so I'd like to discuss the merits of either keeping Ron or sending him packing for Hitch.
interesting that the last time a team finished with the worst PP and PK in a season was a Ron Wilson coached team.
He's also coached the best PP and PK in the league
i guess there is no in-between with Wilson....my theory is that his system only works with certain players and wilson won't adopt his system to his current players....Wilson is still one of the best hockey minds.....
You guys that want Wilson out that would fire him would be terrible GM's. You can't just throw super stars together and expect them to play and never lose. You NEED stability in your organization if not and you keep making too many changes important ones at that you'll never get out of the bottom. I've seen that many times before it doesn't work. Keep Wilson for another season maybe two depending on how much this team does change and who's on it.
People expecting a stanley cup run at the start of this season were crazy . Face it our team is RE-BUILDING. The sooner people get that in their thick skulls the better because we wont have threads talking about who to fire and who to trade every 3 seconds
Don't want Hitchcock, he has a very poor record with developing young talent.
With that in mind, either Acton or Hunter need to get out. There is no excuse for a carry over next season of so woeful PK and PP's.
Hunter, I believe works with the defenseman, I'm not sure of Acton's role but whatever it is the PP was atrocious this season. My beer league teams run better powerplay's and most of my team's aren't very good.
