I think we are going to see that shift. Kadri's shot suppression is terrible. It's not a disaster like Bozak, but still shit.

Matthews and Kadri's shot supression numbers are very similar, according to Own the Puck. However Kadri starts 63% of shifts in the defensive zone, while Matthews only 37%.

Guess how big of a factor zone starts have on shot supression.

Shot generation rate is how good a player is at producing shots. Shot suppression is measuring how many shots the opposition gets with that player on the ice. It's a measure of a players impact on defence.

Someone who was good at intercepting passes, boxing out players, and blocking shots should have a good shot suppression numbers.

Surprised there hasnt been much said about a Nylander extension. I'd love to get him locked up this offseason.

I'm sure the Leafs would love to. He's probably hoping for 25-30 goals this year. So it's to his benefit not to talk right now.

It's in his best interest.... barring injury, offensive decline, etc.

There's risk both ways...but yes, my gut is telilng me that Willie Nye is going to have a big season.  And when I say big, I'm talking Top 15 in scoring big (Matthews was #20 in scoring last season).

What would you do if you were in Nylander's position?

I would have discussions (which I'm sure they have) and gauge what kind of dollar figure the Leafs are willing to offer...and I wouldn't settle on anything unless it was an overpayment ($8M+/yr)...which they won't.  So basically, I'd play it out.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if Nylander had a Leon Draisaitl type of season next season (numbers wise).

I'm very risk-adverse and like guaranteed things. You'd have to give me exact numbers and terms, but I'd probably end up playing out the season to go for the big money. That being said... if I signed now and could earn $6M versus earning $8M with a good season and $4M with a bad season, I take the $6M.... but those exact numbers/term would play a big factor in my decision.

Goalie Cal Heeter signed to AHL deal, likely to do the AHL - ECHL yo-yo.
