Whenever you’re a coach landing in a new job, you generally get to bring an assistant along to help you out. For Randy Carlyle in Toronto, he’s getting to do just that and is bringing in a familiar face from Anaheim.

The Leafs announced the hiring of Dave Farrish to be Carlyle’s assistant and it’s a role he’s familiar with. Farrish was Carlyle’s assistant for seven seasons in Anaheim and was part of his staff that won the Stanley Cup in 2007. Those are plaudits that Maple Leaf fans are likely to keep  an eye on as Carlyle takes over in Toronto.

Farrish joins Scott Gordon and Greg Cronin as assistants in Toronto, although those guys were on Ron Wilson’s staff previously.

    Farrish, Schmarrish !

    bringing in friends from Anaheim ain’t gonna make the slightest bit of difference, even if they included Snoopy and Tinkerbell … this fool’s “goose is cooked” man … at least until such time that Burke is “dealt with” once and for all … the fair city of Toronto deserves so much better than this “paper-mache” garbage ! … come on you guys, there has to be a better way to make things right, eh ?
