  1. Kadri could do it but they shortened his leash. I do think if we got a gritty player with some sandpaper who could play hockey as good as brown, Ennis, or lindholm, Hainsy it would have some value. What is important is that they dont take away any skill for added toughness.

    Why don't you like Lucic?

    hiring Hitchcock is such an old school Pete move. yuck.
  4. How is it a player's fault for wanting their market value?

    Rielly was clearly the guy before they both arrived. Honestly, probably the best person to be in front of the camera.

    Is he not a top 4 d-man?
  7. He's the perfect trade away to save a million bucks on the cap candidate. We should be able to find people on ELCs or low cost (under 1.5 million) to give the same value he's providing.
  8. He's been totally invisible since he stopped riding Matthews' coattails as a nightly linemate.

    Are the stretch passes really by design?

    Well I've worked in wilderness conservation and environmental policy for almost a decade. Professional tree hugger. Yet I still miss the open ice hits, hip checks, and face punching. Tree hugging neanderthal, I guess.

    Damn - right call keeping Sparks. If Mac looked appealing.

    Bold Prediction Premises: Gardiner begins to decline. Hainsey continues to decline. Zaitsev sucks again.

    I still love a Domi 😀
  18. Random Thoughts #2

    It's really great being a Leafs fan these days. I moved behind enemy lines into Gatineau Quebec and all the Sens and Hsbs fans are embarrassed to talk hockey. 😀
  19. Hainsey is only lovechild of Babs left. No more Komarov or Polak. It will all be direct to Ronnie

    Ewww. That's too bad.
  21. How did he get more than league minimum? #FireDUBAS
  22. Leafs sign John Tavares

    That's a good looking man right there.
  23. Defensive stats

    Advanced stats for defense 1. Shot suppression 2. Zone exits 3. Breakups of zone entries 4. Quality of competition 5. Corsi-relative 6. High danger scoring chances against 7. Zone entries against I generally look at these stats combined to get a picture of defense. You look at how many plays they break up and how well they translate that into turning the puck up ice to the forwards.
