  1. Yes and if the plan is to recycle a veteran coach, I hope it is someone who has actually had real success in this type of situation.
  2. If Sheldon Keefe is available I recommend we go get him ASAP. If he can't win here then it will almost certainly be because management failed him. If given the right tools and listened too he will deliver the goods. Dude has won everywhere. I watched him coach up close in Junior hockey and his team won league title 5 times in a row. Then he moved to the OHL and won. Then to the AHL and won.

  4. Where's Coopers and Lybrand? Daley just bringing the cards out......did he shuffle em?
  5. NHL is happy he's going to NY Metro or Chicago! Ummmmm
  6. 1. Agreed, the best result is a combination of analysis and scouting. 2. Corsi is often quoted on here yet in this instance it is so obvious that other factors are missing. On an individual level, who you are on the ice with is not dealt with and has some of the same problems old fashioned +/- has. 3. There are folks on this forum who have said they have a problem with the eyeball test. 4. No, but he won't be coaching long if he doesn't use the tools at his disposal. If there is a real advantage and some other coach is getting it and you're not, you are hurting yourself.
  7. I've read and understand the analytics. I am what some people would probably call an analytics guy. Numbers play a role, but quite frankly aren't as enlightening as some of you believe in regards to certain things.They are being overrated by the numbers crowd pure and simple. Many times they just matchup with what you see. And, sometimes they are way off based on the fact the models used don't capture everything needed in a continous action game. Does anyone really believe these Corsis truly represent the Sabres 50.0 and Lightning 51.6? This is a stat I see frequently sited on here and I'm not trying to cherry pick as there are a ton of other examples. People complaining about this guy using his eyeballs are being naive. The infamous Tangotiger (analytics guru) once said "in small samples a good scout can be superior to the numbers". Now if you want to talk about the tactics of the game and something like PP goals often originating down low, well that is something a coach can use. There are tons of examples of this, and if a coach rejects using data that is helpful, he won't be coaching too much longer. If however he rejects data that he finds lacking, well that is his perogative. Personally, I'm just tired of someone saying this defenseman has a 54.0 Corsi and ignores the rest of his game (which is alot) that is as bad as the coach who refuses to use any analytics. JMO
  8. He had no chance of recovering and coaching this team again. The players obviously didn't have his back and it showed....unless you're going to bring in all new players it wouldn't work.😀
  9. I would love Sheldon Keefe, but that is likely not possible. He is tough, flexible and a winner. Plus he's an experienced 38 year who and could be around and successful for years.
  10. I've seen him before and after! Not nude
  11. He has the skills and needs more time to develop physically. He put on baby fat (20-25 lbs.) since the World Jrs. and it affected his speed and quickness. Hit the squat rack hard this offseason Casey and it will pay off. Oh and your shot can never be good enough.
  12. Just a joke about waivers dude! I think you're wrong but you're entitled to the opinion.
  13. The only way he goes on my team is for an overwhelming offer that improves the team.
  14. LMAO! Somebody wanted to get rid of Eichel?........... Just waive his ass now. The only way he goes on my team is for an overwhelming offer that improves the team. Jeez blame the only thing that isn't a problem-nice problem analysis.
  15. I would hire Sheldon Keefe in a heartbeat. I"ve seen this guys work up close and he's a winner. Having said that, he is the heir apparent in Toronto.
