@Mcost61 @darthNihilus Not sure,  this is the definition:"Turnover plus-minus is the difference between the number of takeaways (player gains control of the puck from opponents) and giveaways (player gives up control of the puck to opponents)"

To be fair to Phaneuf while he led the league last year in giveaways this year Karlsson (who everybody loves) leads with 115 and Dion only has 60 (for the 39th worst in the league). Kessel by the way is top 10 worst in the league but no one complains because he is a pure goal scorer and is not supposed to be defensively responsible.

@Jordan29 @darthNihilus @Belfour20/JB-45  I dont think anyone hates anyone on this team. I think we'd like to see some upgrades and that is all. Franson sucks by the way - and I loved the guy since we got him, but this year......man he blows

@Belfour20/JB-45  he cannot ban you since you have not broken any rules. You dont ban people because they dislike Dion Phaneuf (unless you're on ppp)

@loomx @Greg Fenton @Belfour20/JB-45  The he should have gone to the coach and taken himself out of the game. He could have gone to management and said "look I'm in a lot of pain and its effecting the way I play. I think I will hurt the team more by being in the lineup than being out of it. Obviously no player does that so lets not use the injury excuse unless all the players playing like shit were injured too (which is oddly what we are hearing about Franson, Gunner and who knows who else)

@Belfour20/JB-45 @darthNihilus @Alec Brownscombe  Is there a stat that shows his giveaways and takeaways? How about failed attempts to clear? I ask because some people say you cannot tell anything by watching the game.

@loomx @Greg Fenton @Belfour20/JB-45  maybe so was everyone else on the team who was playing poorly 

13 hours, 51 minutes ago on NHL Playoffs Round 1 – Open Thread

Reply

@Greg Fenton @Belfour20/JB-45 @loomx  No he did not. When he is counted on for either offense or defense he can usually deliver as long as his ice time does not become too high, but he cannot do both. He also cannot play like when he was 22 and had his career year. I am ok with Dion not scoring as long as he is good defending, because the real weakness is overall team defense. Let someone else score the goals as long as Dion prevents them.

@Belfour20/JB-45  I'd rather have Kaberle over Dion Phaneuf any day (or Sylvain Lefebvre who could not score or even Dave Ellett who was also a 40-50pt D that could also defend)

@Bobsyouruncle @darthNihilus  Why don't you just spit out what it is you are trying to say? Yes its a BS comparison to lump Kadri with the best centers in the league but he's alright and as Leaf fans we want him to improve. 

17 hours, 14 minutes ago on NHL Playoffs Round 1 – Open Thread

Reply

@Bobsyouruncle @Burtonboy  I think it represents that Kadri scored 50 points as a 23 year old and thereby Leaf's fans anticipate him putting up 100 points as a 24 year old, I mean Crosby did it-why can't he?

@loomx @Darkside Beleafer @Mcost61 @darthNihilus @Burtonboy  Nonsense. Clarkson sucks and people have been saying it all year. No one is saying Kadri sucks people just want the same Kadri as we had for the first 20 games of his career rather than the stay to outside guy he was for long stretches this season.

@deedrag @Mcost61 @Jmessih  I think he threw Clarkson/Kuli/coach under the bus during his exit interview when they asked if his lack of consistency had anything to do with the changing linemates. He said it was hard to develop chemistry when one guy on your line is constantly changing. (since loops has been with him all season it can only mean right side and coach lol)
