Pierre LeBrun answers some rants…
Is it just me or does Randy Carlyle get a free pass? He is lucky to get 50% out of his “superstars” and yet Murray keeps saying that the coach is safe. I think the Ducks need a change in their style of play not to mention a coach that is going to whip Getzlaf, Perry and Selanne into shape. These players should be in the Stamkos, Crosby, Ovechkin conversations but they are not because they are not challenged by their coach to do better.
I understand your frustration as a Ducks fan. I believe Randy Carlyle is one of the best coaches in the league. But sometimes—and that time may be coming—you stay long enough in the same place and the players stop responding. It’s why great coaches like Scotty Bowman didn’t stay in the same place forever; the late Pat Burns coached four different teams to impressive levels of success. But like any coach, the players stop responding after a while. It may be that time has come in Anaheim.
