Plus ça Change, Plus c'est la Même Chose

Marianne Helm

In the Randy Carlyle Coaching Myths Part 2 post, I looked at how nothing has really changed with Carlyle at the helm compared to last season. Now that we're a few more games along, I figure it'd good to quickly revisit this premise.

Start of last season: 27gp; 32pts.

Start of this season: 27gp; 31pts

Oddly enough, each season saw a three-game winless streak in between games 24 and 27. What's that old saying? If you don't learn from history, you are doomed to repeat it?
