In Life

Two years ago, Ryan Getzlaf had a dreadful NHL season, scoring 11 goals, looking nothing like the star he was and the star he is now.

And just about everybody thought he was done as a big-time player.

This is how the Maple Leafs look at Randy Carlyle now. They see a terrific coach who had a dreadful season. They scoured the market place — both Dave Nonis and Brendan Shanahan — and kept asking the same question: Who’s better? And the answer they came up with was like one of those Mel Lastman commercials: Nooo-body.

Shanahan and Nonis, in their first major decision together, have taken a most unpopular stance.
