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.

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.
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!
It depends on hrr or "hockey related revenue." Non hrr doesn't get split with players. It's probably safe to say that some of that 180 million isn't hrr. I don't know exactly what defines hrr because, to me, all nhl revenue is hockey related.
That could happen but I think Phaneuf is just too entrenched as captain and minute muncher.

I've heard Nonis say a few times "we're not done yet" when referring to roster moves. It makes me wonder what else he thinks we need. I can see a D upgrade but I don't really know who I'd want off the team. The players that screw up most are still young and we know they'll get better. And what forward out of our top 12 could you possibly want to trade?
We have a near perfect team.
Now... onto winning our third home opener of the season.
He's pretty low key which is good. You need a guy like that to lock things down in the dressing room. Mind you, behind closed doors he may be an animal. Seems like a good guy.
I can't stand the analysts on tsn projecting the leafs to be 4th in the Atlantic or a borderline playoff team. I think they're really wrong. They can be first in the Atlantic.
