“We have as good a management team as you can have to get this right”

Boy, talk about ego.

What a dead end job. Too bad.

“I think Carlyle is a good coach, and that’s as far as I’ll go.” 

Soooooo, he’s gone?

I think Shanny is going to give the media a run for their money.  He’s not afraid to bark back.

Dave Nonis looked like a nervous puppy.  Seriously.

I can hear the rejoicing of the sports-coats salesmen in TO, with excess stock in the avec shoulder-pad department.

He really did look nervous.  I think Shanny would give him at least a full year though - he seems to be looking at this from a big picture, long term perspective (unlike every other Toronto fan).

If you kept the player running for about at least twenty minutes after the presser, EVERY single question he was asked in the post-presser scrums, he was looking at something else whereas Shanny kept his gaze.

And seriously, I don’t know where the Tronna press and fans gets their ideas that Shanny apprenticed as a manager-in-training under Holland, Nill, and Martin like Yzerman did.  They seemed bent grotesquely in that direction.

They’re just trying to grasp at any possible reason why the Leafs would have hired him.

I love Shanny, but what a weird, meandering career that dude has had.  I wish he had remained a Wing.  His number would be in the rafters. 

Not sure if this is a step forward for the man.  Sure getting away from the NHL wheel of justice has to be an improvement in most cases, but Toronto?  Yikies.  Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
