09:56 AM ET 01.12 | Despite a win to help stop a slide, these are long days in Toronto. Anyone who lost his mind over the fact Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle actually scratched Jake Gardiner from a game this week apparently wasn't paying very much attention to last Saturday night's match in Toronto against the Rangers. Though, somewhat but not entirely aside from the point, a well-placed source told Slap Shots the Maple Leafs players had started tuning out Carlyle some time ago, and well before the all-access cameras (not) showed up.

This team needs an enema! Never mind getting rid of Carlyle. Get rid of a few guys to show this spoiled room that the hard work and commitment that turned them around last season is the missing ingredient. These fools are back to playing Ron Wilson hockey??? no defensive commitment, no shot-blocking, no fighting and no wins. Kadri and Gardiner have to go. Send Kadri away for a top-4 defenseman (Girardi?) and trade Gardiner and Reimer and Gardiner to a team seeking help on the blue line and goal for a top-6 forward. That is just a start.

God forbid they listen to a coach who actually knows how to coach and who has actually won a cup.....

Rangers don't need Kadri .....Girardi ain't going anywhere....Rangers have been playing better as of late....

The natives are restless.

It looks like we might have to add Randy Out date for Danny.

Long overdue, but their GM with the long name shares blame.

I've always said don't hire a guy with "day off" in his name. :o)

January 12, 2014  11:07 AM ET

BTW with all the employees of MLSE couldn't one of them remind Handy Randy to put his teeth in before a game?

I don't think there's ever been a team that juggles the lines and pairings during the game more than the Leafs do.

Disco Dan does the same thing with Pittsburgh. Drives me crazy.

First time I saw his name, I thought it was a typo.

The Leafs lack identity. If they want to be a "run and gun" team, they need to hire a coach that knows that type of system. If they want to be a grinding team, they will need to get rid of many of their soft players. They also need a leadership injection in the dressing room.
