Your Enemy: Nucks Misconduct

Complete Coverage >


Will Carlyle bring Sexy back? Probably not, but one look at the feather haired man in the video below told you that much. Carlyle circa 1980 is preaching consistency, and Carlyle thirty years later is preaching consistency to Sexton. Has anyone been preaching it to this Ducks squad?

The same team that suffered losing streaks while completely healthy is now experiencing success without Getzlaf, Hiller or Wisniewski (let's pretend I said that last name with a straight face). Maybe a little youth in lieu of some tired Olympians would have served this team better in the month of March. It's a coaching call.

Carlyle's job will stay on the line down the stretch, if he hasn't lost it already. The decision to reinsert Wisniewski is immediate, but the decision to put back Getzlaf and Hiller can probably wait until fan appreciation night. It doesn't take much to lose your spot in this league, one bad game, one turnover, one too many nights when your star players aren't listening to you. You've got to be consistent in this league.

Post any game info and lineup changes in the comments.
