    if it were up to you guys they should turn over 2/3 of the roster and fire the caoch every time they miss the playoffs.

    you are.

    based on how the league calculates wins and losses the leafs were over .500 this year. based on how carlyle's record is calculated in the record books, they were over .500.

    you can play semantics if you'd like and manipulate wins and losses.

    fact is.. the leafs posted a record over .500. they had 84 points in 82 games.

    period. if you have an issue with how wins...

    actually, shaw's a huge equalizing factor there.

    the team is exhibiting the same problems they had before carlyle came here. there's a problem with (some of) the players.
