If you start with personal anger and vitriole dont be surprised at what comes back and then call it instability.

Did Not indicate that he wants a rational discussion ? The constant belaboring of points, the need to wait, endlessly, until something can further the opinion, then the killing of a house fly with a sledge hammer, is exhausting to read, I can only imagine what it must be like to post.

SL has obviously had a poor record as a head coach in the AHL. It's too bad, when hired, a lot of hockey people, McGuire being one of them, touted him as an up and coming hockey guy. From the outside, it seems that he should be let go. As always,I wonder what the org. sees hat I don't ? Covered ? I miss anything ?


That’s true Phees - and yet most are smart enough to understand he basically had an ECHL team. In October lineup had Carr, Froese, Scherback, Holland, McCarron, Terry in their top 6, Taormina,Jarabek, Lernout top 3 D.

Just like NHL team - not enough organizational talent in the players that need to step into important roles. The last draft and the upcoming one should reverse the course,

You can make fun of his lineup but Chris terry led the league in pts and pts/game this year. Led it in pts/gm last year too. Taormina is one of the best offensive d in the ahl. Gelinas is a powerplay weapon at that level. Cracknell/holland put up almost 35 goals combined for the rocket.

He had a good goalie in lindgren too.

Froese is another ahler who could score at that level.

Scherbak was putting huge points up too.

Are they nhl prospects? Outside of scherbak, No. They arent ahl prospects.

Is it lack of ahl talent? Not really. Ahl teams ofteb have success with these journeyman AAAA players. Dominate the AHL, not good enough for the NHL types.

Consider that grand rapids won the calder cup last year... 7 of their top 8 playoff scorers were guys youd call journeyman ahlers and only 1 was a prospect in tyler bertuzzi.

Did the team get decimated by callups. Sure.. its true that in the 2nd half of the season depth was an issue.

But. They were never good. It isnt like they were a good ahl team early and fell apart cause the habs took players like scherbak and froese. They were bad from the start.

Its also been 6 years for sly running the ahl team. What are the results? Development of nhlers? Thats Not really there either. This is even more true when you consider hes supposed to be a defenseman specialist as that was his nhl position. The only guys hes developped are forwards andrighetto, dlr, scherbak, hudon.

His development record isnt good and his teams have missed the playoffs 5/6 years. We cant blame it all on lack of talent.

Do you actually believe the shit you post? Never good? They were flirting with first place before the callups started. They were 9-5-2 before the massive callups started.

To address the rest of your stream of fake facts, it requires too much effort - for which I have none given your trump like troll behaviour.

I wonder if there’s a rule of thumb to ice the best AHL team. Pros/prospects ? Does Mtl sign/keep the Eisenscmidt guys too long ? Should you try and overpay a Chris Terry line to try and guarantee a winning culture ?

They started strong, but then fell apart.

One callup at 9-5-2 of Byron Froese should not have destroyed the team. The depth wasn't really challenged til January and February and they fell apart long before that.

But don't address the rest of my points, 6 years of lack of development, 5/6 years of playoffs missed. The fact he had a top AHL defenceman, a top AHL scorer, a top centre in Holland/Cracknell that scored 35 goals, a good goalie in Lindgren and couldn't win. But you don't want to address those, as you have an agenda of protecting this regime at all costs. I bring facts, and you are the one screaming "fake news"... who is the real trump-like troll?

I prefer the focus to be on development. But part of development is winning. There needs to be a balance, and guys like Terry are necessary to help teach the youth and to ensure the team wins and puts the prospects in important games and situations. It all goes hand in hand.

In some ways though you can forgive missing the playoffs if the players are developping... but the fact is that they are not developping either. Lefebvre's track record is not good on either the winning or the development front.

A little teaching moment why some of us have trouble with your posting.

1. To embellish your rant, you say they were never good. Once you were shown they were actually a pretty good team before they were ravaged by callups - you now pivot to say they started strong but fell apart. Which is it? They fell apart because in November they did not have the organization depth to replace Jerabek, Deslauriers, Froese, Lingren and Carr. I don't see how this is a reflection on Sly except if your mind is already made up.

2. You say one callup, but In a span of 2 weeks in early November, Jerabek, Deslauriers, Froese were called up never to return - Carr was called up 8 days later never to return. Also before Froese was called up, Lindgren was already gone replacing Price. He only returned at the end of the month. Again you are really trying hard to hang on to your point or you are just trolling. Either way, it's disingenuous - meant to distract from the fact that most of your ramblings are just emotional reactions to the state of the team.

And this goes on and on before your revert to the lazy 6 years blah.blah.blah....

This is what he was given. Facts

Forwards

- Chris Terry led the entire league in points.
- Cracknell/Holland combined for 35 goals and 67 points which would be a top 5 AHL scorer.
He had Scherbak, Carr, Rychel, Deslauriers on the top line... other than a few games, at least one of these guys was available. Thats a solid top line in the AHL. Heck that should be one of the best lines in the entire league and looking at Terry's points and the Centres points it produced like one.

- His job, over the last six years was to develop guys like McCarron, Audette, Gregoire, Boucher, Eischenschmidt, etc... to become his second and third line in the AHL. If he can't even develop these players to become 2nd and 3rd line AHLers, never mind NHLers, why do we want him in charge of development?


On Defence
- Matt Taormina was 3rd amongst all defencemen in points.
- Eric Gelinas is an NHL veteran who should be a very good AHL defenceman. He scored 13 goals.
- Brett Lernout was down in the AHL the majority of the season.
- After Jerabek was called up, Juulsen returned from injury.

That should be a strong top 4 at that level.


In net
- Lindgren had 37 starts.
- McNiven was a rookie, but came in as the top goalie in the OHL the last two years. Its not chopped liver, and if the defence had any semblance of structure in front of him, he should make saves. The fact that Lindgren has a higher save % in the NHL than the AHL tells you a lot about the quality of Laval's defensive structure.

But sure its acceptable that he's not developping players and he's not winning either.

This organization's motto when bergevin was hired was no excuses. All I see in your post is a bunch of excuses.

In the NHL, sure.

We are talking about the AHL, where he's pretty decent. If he wasn't good enough for the AHL, he would never have played nearly 200 NHL games (189).

I'm not saying he's an NHL defenceman, but he's more than good enough to be part of a winning AHL roster.

Just like Chris Terry is an NHL stiff, but dominates the league.

Gelinas is a stiff, AHL,ECHL, NAHL. He'll get 10-15 goals anywhere but he can't play. If they have a hardest shot comp, he's your guy though.

Gélinas was as bad as ever in the AHL this season, he was out of the line-up and was playing on the third pairing for most of the first half. Mike is right, the guy is a stiff with a slap shot.

What about Baker who says we can't debate with him because the motto of the organisation was "No excuse" at some point? What about that? Hum?

Limiting myself to only reading the previous five posts, this appears to be a thread regarding the efficacy of Martin Gelinas' play in the minor leagues with a dash of Ontario home cooking charm.

Your proof is that "he was out of the lineup and playing on the third pairing"... of course, those are coaching decisions. Also part of the reason he was scratched early in the season is the 7 player Veteran rule in the AHL and they had 8 vets and had to rotate the healthy scratches before guys like Froese got called up.

But, again ask why a good coach couldn't get a 26 year old with 189 NHL games under his belt to be able to succeed at the AHL level. He obviously did well enough in other organizations to earn long NHL looks. Why was he in the third pairing or out of the lineup in this organization? Why can't our coach get AHL calibre play out of him?

Overall for the thread though, I've read a lot of excuses as to why Lefebvres record sucks, why he isn't developing prospects, and all that.

What I'm not reading... what has he done well. What has he done that makes him worthy of a promotion? No one has answered that.

It would be an honour to have Craig beat the crap out of me. Sometimes the gift of a good beating is the best thing a man can do for another man

There seems to be one person who doesn't think Sly is shit.

Also is the part where you talk like an adult, before or after you guys started the go back to boredz stuff and go away responses to my post?

if we can go back to the interview tape and the conspiracy thingy...

They ended the interview with the Therrien "that's second guessing" clip. When they posted the interview, they left that part in. I believe when they re-posted they took that part out.

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Also of note...Deslauriers and Juulsen both said the Laval staff was instrumental in getting them ready to play in the NHL.

This is not an endorsement of Sly Lef...just an observation
