@Pent_House @wiski @Burtonboy @The_Polish_Cannon @rustynail  Never felt they were entirely useless . Mostly i found the way the disciples of this stuff deliver the message as useless . Fuckin arrogant and annoying . Thats a very poor way to sell anything

@The_Polish_Cannon @rustynail @Burtonboy  I've always been of the opinion most teams use some sort of propritory  analytics . Probably systems developed in house.  I've always wondered if Corsi and Fenwick are really sophisticated enough to meet a teams needs . I'm now really wondering exactly what the Leafs are doing in this regard. Maybe they are way behind the curve on this stuff after all

@ingy56 @Burtonboy  I think its deliberate . Kessel refused to answer . JVR was vague and Phaneuf wouldn't say either . The only one was Bernier

Question I would love to have answered is what happened to Phaneuf after the Olympic break. Prior to that he was playing the best hockey I've seen him play since he came here . The obvious answer is an injury of some sort but I doubt I will ever get an answer. If the Leafs or Phaneuf came out and revealed what was wrong with him they would be accused of making excuses . Dammed if you do and dammed if you don't in this market.

@CanuckUKinToronto @Burtonboy  Most fans and media alike are short sighted . They simply can't see the bigger picture. Someone like Nonis and Shanahan are thinking in term of 2 -3 down the road not the 5 weeks we sucked at the end of this season that everyone is focused on.Yes its concerning and sucks for everyone but there's no sense crying about it all day long all night long . Roll up your sleeves, go to work and find out what happened. Whats broken can usually be fixed with the right parts

Frankly I sometimes wish that Kadri and Gardiner would both get traded and go on to reach the're full potential somewhere else.  It would be dammed interesting to hear what Leafs nation has to say then

@Belfour20/JB-45 @CanuckUKinToronto  The numbers on Gardiner were not any kind of comparison to Phaneuf or anyone else for that matter . They are simply pointing out he's not as bad as many make him out to be . Same with Kadri . He's not nor likely ever will be an elite # 1 C  but he doing pretty well for a 23 yrs old 2nd line center

Kadri also has posted more points between age 18-23 than Pacioretty and Neal did.

@Anthony Petrielli  I'd be willing to bet money that whole philosophy is about to change in a big way. The direction this team takes is being decided by a different guy now

@Mind Bomb @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy  That was true in the past with the teachers and the like . I think the present owners want a winner badly . Makes sense given the business the're in . Massive profits if this team goes deep and wins a cup.

@Anthony Petrielli  Yep it leaves a real sour taste in your mouth for sure . I keep trying to to convince myself its for the best though Anthony. Changes were needed if we are ever to be a contender and this collapse will ensure those changes will be made .

So there's a good possibility Mitch Korn will be leaving the Preds . Hope the Leafs make him an offer . Arguably the best goalie coach in the League

@CanuckUKinToronto @Burtonboy  Wasn't very successful as coach as far as I know  . Spent most of his time in recent yrs as a front office guy . I can see him in player development or something like that . For the contract stuff you need a lawyer . I nominate Elliot lol

@CanuckUKinToronto @Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe  Depends on how Shanny and company decide they want to build this team going forward . IMO small skill guys are easier to find then the big skill guys . I think we need more size with talent myself

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy @CanuckUKinToronto  I definetly see a lot of shake up in the Leafs front office for sure . Most likely Poulin and Loiselle are gone along with a shakeup with the pro scouting division . Morrison is doing a good job as Head of amateur scouting so I hope he stays. Who knows how long Nonis sticks so we wait and see on that one. Little doubt in my mind Shanny will have a very different management group within 6 months to a yr
