Is getting mumps from Sidney Crosby one of those cool things to do? Yeah, I got Crosby mumps biatch.

I always thought it got shaved down from 60 if the goalie got to the bench for a delayed penalty.
5 days, 3 hours ago on Game 29 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Red Wings 1
The biggest test for the Leafs is just around the corner now... Not just the road games and back to backs, but the challenge of following up a great stretch with more and more consistency. I've doubted the leadership on the team as others have, but the team has been awesome since they didn't salute the fans that one night (as silly as it seemed at the time).
Maybe they were onto something. It now almost reminds me of Gretzky's us against the world press conference at the Olympics.

I don't think this one would have made the cut for ESPNs nude "body issue"

Totally... And he doesn't get too pleased with himself. I swear he won't even smile until they win it all.

Hey I'm a huge Leafs fan. I just wish I could reincarnate Kyle Lowry as our #1 centre.
I don't think you'd see too many tweets of pictures of this Raptors team in cheesy Xmas sweaters.

I don't mind the extracurricular stuff, but couldn't they be be doing something that would compliment their game preparation more? Wrestle alligators? Play catch with cement blocks? Walk on fire?
Kessel and Kadri for Clark and Gilmour?

Whenever I see something like this I think every moment spent in a team love-in is a moment that could have been spent in the gym/pounding meat Rocky-style. These guys need to get meaner. What a bunch of clowns. Love the team, but I only love a few players.

10 cups you mean. Plus 7 as an executive. The Leafs have no one close to comparable, so it's not surprising, I guess, that some of us don't understand.

Is there a stat that tracks the percentage of goals a team scores off the rush?
I like goals off the rush, but lots of excitement for fans can be generated by sustaining pressure as well.
1 week, 1 day ago on GDT: Game #28, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m., SN)
I'd bet that if the team could start having that killer instinct (see Gilmour, Clark), their Fenwick would go up. So it's not that they need to improve their Fenwick. It's that they need to improve their killer instinct.
It reminds me of the question of what's worse: losing or not winning. I think our team has too many players who just like to win and not enough of those who hate to lose.
1 week, 2 days ago on Game Review: Game #27, Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. Calgary Flames 1
Nice. That sucks.
So where do we sit with our Fenwick rating?
i think you catch my drift. I'm just curious if anyone has ever figured out which stat is truly most representative of success. There must be a way to rank them in order of their being "consistently most representative."
I'm just asking because I heard a story about Babcock pointing to the teams with the best goals f/a differential when asked which are the best teams. It would be cool if it could be that simple.
Fancy stat request: which team stat (fancy or otherwise) has the highest correlation to wins and/or Stanley Cups?
If I could have one ex leaf back (notwithstanding my namesake) it would be sundin.

One ball and lots of ice cream cake.
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #26, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks (7 p.m., CBC)
It's hard to know without knowing the players personally or having good inside info. All I know FOR SURE is that Kessel loves Dairy Queen ice cream cake.

I haven't been following but are people not choked about Ovechkin's hit on Komarov? That was bullshit.
Bozak is ok.

I wish Ovechkin got drilled after cheap shoting Komarov last night. What a joke.

I'd kill three chickens to have the leafs where the habs are now.
I'm sure it was nothing intentional, but still, it's a pretty clueless headline.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on All Of Phil Kessel’s 37 Goals – 2013/2014
Did anyone see the tsn headline after the habs/bruins game? It showed a picture of Subban getting hit by Chara with another bruin in the background with "Back in Black" as the headline. What the hell was that supposed to mean? They changed it a few minutes later.
Crosby had a lot of pressure put on him to save the league... I don't know if that hurt him at all, but you could say the concussions did at least. If MacKinnon stays healthy, he could turn out to be better.
8 months ago on Morning Mashup
If Kadri is special for getting 20 goals and 50 points at 23 yrs of age, what is MacKinnon for getting over 60 points and being a playoff force at 18?
Hilarious... I was just thinking
Say goodnight... Corsi is right

I may have missed this in an earlier thread, but is it possible that Komarov could return to the Leafs this season?

Wake and crack.
@JMAC17 @17Forever @vinoa He looks like a warrior now, but it also looks like he took the trade to the leafs pretty hard in his first picture in the blue and white. He looks pretty pale, don't you think? Strung out. Definitely his latest photo is the most menacing and least crack-heady of the bunch.

@rustynail @Dougie Wraparound I'd say. There's a way different feel this year. I'm happy with 82 pts for Phil, but it would be so great to see him get to 40 goals, or better yet, 100 pts.
1 year, 1 month ago on What’s Dion Phaneuf Worth?
Two years ago, Kessel had 21 pts. (10 g, 11 a) in his first 13 games. He ended the year with 82 pts. (37 + 45). Let's hope he keeps this going a while longer, then, and gets to 40 this year.
It looks like McQuaid intentionally pulled Scott down in order to make him hit his head on the ice a la Parros... And after Scott gets up, he sure does look groggy. This type of play has no place in the game, except in this case, of course.

This is a funny link I saw years ago and now I always sing the Kessel rap when he kicks ass. "Kessel... Phil Kessel WHAT? Hat tricks... Got hat tricks WHAT?" was in full force tonight.

Welcome back buddy.

I like how you're positive and people respond to you with positive remarks. If you have a personal conflict with traditional watching vs analytics, it's probably best to sit back. What do you expect will happen at the end of this life quest? Return to MLHS with the post to end all posts: "folks, I've figured it out...(x + y)b/99 - 66(2x) = Stanley cup?"

Wow. Just amazing. To think of the mind behind it all.

I for one have never been able to finish reading any article posted on this site that is focused on corsi or any other advanced stat. It has a weird cult-like following and some people may get enjoyment out of it, but it makes me want to scratch my eyes out.
It's ironic that I'm even posting here but I just felt like making it known that I think the stat sucks ass.

Lunches would be way easier if peanut butter was allowed. Skippy must be choked.
I really just wanted to compliment Rielly, not criticize Kadri. Rielly has maturity beyond his years. Kadri acts his age.
1 year, 2 months ago on Morning Mashup: A Contender’s Core?
I was exaggerating a bit, but he was asked what kind of car he'd want to buy a year or two ago and he actually answered the question. Rielly just doesn't ooze cockiness. What, you think Kadri is a picture of humility?
I love Kadri and his confidence, but Rielly makes me so comfortable when he's interviewed just because he has such a level head. When he was asked about Fraser's injury presenting him an opportunity, he just said "I'm not taking anything for granted, there could be a trade..." If that was Kadri, he would have talked about how awesome he is and how much he deserves a chance and how he is looking forward to buying a fast car once he inevitably dominates in the nhl. Don't get me wrong, I love Kadri and we need a guy like that on our team if only because his confidence leads to feistiness on the ice. But Rielly already has the attitude of a veteran and he's never even played a game in the nhl.
Anyway, I'm glad we have both of them!
