Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle finally caved in.
Check the odd video below.
The nomination was somewhat sinister.
Kulemin and Grabovski were both dispatched from the Toronto Maple Leafs roster during the past couple of seasons. Neither enjoyed quality minutes during Carlyle’s tenure as Leafs coach.
Coming from this pair, the nomination was definitely odd.
But, Randy Carlyle has become used to “odd” with the Toronto Maple Leafs. So, he showed he was a good sport and took the plunge.

Randy Carlyle demonstrated some steely nerves too. He was iced by a zamboni and an extra ice bucket carried by Kadri. As Kevin McGran reported for the Toronto Star, neither player seemed sad about soaking their coach.
For Carlyle, the ALS awareness campaign strikes close to home. Carlyle’s brother-in-law was recently diagnosed with ALS.
As for Kulemin and Grabovski, their nomination of Carlyle and Nonis raises some interesting questions…
Was this nomination good-natured or were the pair looking to extract a little revenge on their former coach?
Will Dave Nonis take a break from his icy demeanor and accept the Challenge?
Did Grabo and Kule nominate Carlyle and Nonis, knowing that the Leafs coach and GM are soon to join them as ex-Toronto Maple Leafs?
How do feel about this nomination, Leafs fans? Let us know in the comments below.
