Randy Carlyle Prepared To Coach Again

from Darren Dreger of The Dreger Report at TSN,

Carlyle isn't sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. He's busy, currently packing up his cottage and tying off loose ends to head south where he will spend the winter in California. Yes, there will be time to golf and fish, but he stays tuned in to the hockey world by attending Anaheim Ducks home games, as well taking in as many AHL games in San Diego (Ducks) and Ontario (Kings) as possible.

"I pay attention and I watch a lot of games," Carlyle told the Dreger Report. "You have to stay current and be willing to learn new things and steal a few ideas along the way. 

"It's all part of evolving as a coach." 

He says the most noticeable change is the number of young players playing in the league and adds he will definitely adjust his approach in his next coaching job to factor in the influence of youth.

"You have to understand there are things that you could have been hard and fast on 10 years ago that you can't be as hard and fast on now," he said. "You have to be somewhat of a chameleon and be fully capable of changing with the group."

Carlyle says he will do that.
