Fire Carlisle and promote Eakins from SD. Ducks can’t score if they don’t possess the puck and are outshot 2 - 1 on a nightly basis. Randy has proved this year that he canNOT adapt to the new NHL. Time for him to retire.
Yes on Carlyle, no on Eakins,at least not this season. The Gulls are playing great hockey right now, Murray shouldn't do anything to screw that up. Let the kids play and build confidence and get them ready for next year.
As for next year, I'm praying that Kesler pulls a Hossa and takes his money and walks off into the sunset. They've got to try to trade Cogliano, too. Neither of them can effectively play anymore, they're not even that good defensively, either. Kesler can still win face offs but $6.75 million is a lot to pay a face off specialist.
The other thing that's weird about what's going on is no one seems pissed about losing. Maybe it's because unbelievably they are still in the playoff hunt , but everyone just calmly explains what mistakes they made that caused them to lose yet again. I'd love to see something like what happened between McKinnon and Bednar the other night in Colorado. Nathan McKinnon is pissed about losing!
