Toronto Maple Leafs are counting on Carl

MONTREAL - The Toronto Maple Leafs are counting on a coaching change to get them out of a tailspin and back Jon Ryan Jersey on course for the NHL playoffs.Randy Carlyle, who has replaced the fired Ron Wilson, will try to get them there."I sense the club is very tense," Carlyle said at a news conference in the home of the arch-rival Montreal Canadiens, against whom he was to coach his first game for Toronto on Saturday night."The confidence level is at a low. My responsibility as head coach is to pick these guys up. To get them feeling better about themselves."Carlyle, 56, who coached the Anaheim Ducks to a Stanley Cup in 2007, took over a team that had dropped out of playoff position in the NHL Eastern Conference with a 29-28-7 record. Carlyle was fired by Anaheim on Nov. 30 in his seventh season with the Ducks.The Leafs were 1-9-1 in their last 11 games Nick Vannett Jersey when Russell Wilson Jersey Wilson, general manager Brian Burke's longtime friend and former college teammate, was sacked on Friday night.Fans chanted "Fire Wilson" during a lo s to the Florida Panthers at the end of a homestand this week and Burke said it would be "cruel and unusual punishment to make Ron coach another game at the Air Canada Centre."He also said it was clear the team had tuned Wilson out after four seasons behind the bench."It was time," said Burke. "Every coach has a shelf life."I've never had a team fall off a cliff like this in Tyler Lockett Jersey my life. I've seen dips, slumps, rough patches, but this is akin to an 18-wheeler going off a cliff. I don't know what happened. I'm bewildered by it. It's like someone hit me with a two-by-four. I've never had this before where a team just plain, flat out goes into a free fall."
