Ducks coach Randy Carlyle went out of his way at his news conference in Anaheim this week to say there was no truth to suggestions that he didn't like defenseman Jake Gardiner when he coached the Toronto Maple Leafs.
"There was always this myth that I didn’t like him," Carlyle volunteered to reporters Tuesday when the Ducks formally announced that he was returning as Anaheim coach. "It was the furthest thing from the truth. A decision on a young player like that should be made after 300 games to find out what kind of player that player really is. There are a lot of young defensemen that come into the league and get spurned by one hockey club and get another opportunity some place else and develop into an everyday player or sometimes better than an everyday player. You have to show patience with young players. They are a big part of today’s game. In the salary cap era, every team is going to add two or three young players. That’s the reality of the business."
