draglikepull: People ask why I care so much about TOR's Corsi. Here's the result for every team w/ CF% <46% in an 82 game season. http://t.co/IR6znk3LnA



It's also worth mentioning that the Anaheim and Colorado teams that made the playoffs bottomed out the next season. The 07-08 Pens made it to the Cup Finals on the strength of their offence and Fleury's only really good playoff run, and are a pretty serious outlier.

Why do you even bother to watch this train wreck of a team year after year? I mean, its almost like you enjoy discussing all the negative aspects of the Leafs, more than you do watching them play. Am I right, or am I right?

I'll answer for him: same reason you do.

I highly doubt it

Miss you Kuli.

Nikolai Kulemin, N.Y. Islanders: Leaving the Leafs helps a lot of players in this department. Kulemin has gone from a 41-per-cent possession rating to 53 this year with the Isles, who are suddenly one of the top teams in this department in the league. Plenty of ice time with John Tavares has certainly been part of Kuleminís rise.

Still though, only a 32 point pace.

Not really an issue when the team is performing so well.  It's good to see he's not a drag playing with an elite player.

EDIT: And to add - a lot of it is usage/teammates of course.  But it hopefully goes to the idea that certain players can't be good possession players on the Leafs.  They can.

Mirtle also posted a list of most improved possession #'s from last season - Kulemin is 1st, Liles and Gleason also on the list.  8)

What's happening with the Flames right now could be a preview of what could happen to the Leafs.  They were riding the percentages with terrible possession numbers and now have lost 8 straight.

Matts must have showed the kid how it's done.

Backhands are actually a part of the Swedish school curriculum.

This is a better look at it.

The sad thing is I'm not even surprised.   Was fully expecting a crash after that long winning streak.  Life of a Leafs fan.

Bow down before your PDO gods.

What was the Kadri quote?

Something along the lines of "we can beat any team in the league"?

Followed by losses to CAR (worst), PHI (bad) and CHI (best).

Yeah, ok then.

He's not wrong.

Someone tell Bob Cole that it's not "David Winnik".

12
Get Clarkson off the PP.

13

JVR-Bozak-Kessel back together already.

Kadri had his chance with Kessel!

14

Strombo has his tie tucked into his shirt.

Is that a thing?

I'm still scarred from Damien Cox' leg cross.

Bozak floating on the backcheck again.

Yuppp. Obviously he's not the only one who does it, but not everyone gets touted as responsible defensively in some quarters like he does.
