I hate basketball, but i will tune in. Mainly because I like the,aggressive almost hostile attitude I hear from Ujeiri (sp?) and Casey.

Sorry, I took it the wrong way. I figured that out after I replied. My bad. I agree with you, it's very difficult to take every factor into account so I just went with pure numbers.

@Knights2Leafs @darthNihilus @WendelGilmour  

Meaning what? I simply took a list and broke it down by TOI. It does not account for anything other than what I said it did, nor am I inferring anything. Interpret it as you will, I couldn't care less.

I'm not comparing him to anyone, just the facts. Pts/60mins takes TOI into account, ppg doesn't.

Bboy posted a twitter link to a list yesterday of player points between the ages of 18 - 23 which some folks were poking holes in as slanted towards making Kadri look good. If you take the same names over the last 3 seasons, and calculate points per 60 minutes TOI here's what it looks like. Either way you look at it, he's a very effective points generator;



Player                    TOI           60 Mins         Pts          Pts/60 Mins

Crosby                 2677          44.62            175                   3.92

N. Bakkstrom     3263          54.38            166                   3.05

C. Stewart           2370          39.50            117                   2.96

Ryan                    3153          52.55            155                   2.95

Kopitar                3405           56.75           154                    2.71

Kadri                    2424          40.40            101                   2.50

Giroux                  2953          49.22            123                   2.50

Kessel                2979           49.65            119                   2.40

Pacioretty           2692           44.87            103                   2.30

Neal                    2801           46.68            100                   2.14

I think we're about to find out anyway. I expect we'll see some player turnover, but mainly peripheral players. By some of Shanny's comments it looks like he feels the same way as you do. 

I'm afraid if we keep the same core we're going to get the same results. Many on this board mock character and leadership, yet if you don't have it along with skill you're simply not going to be competitive. Based on the weak (being generous) efforts in some of the biggest games I don't believe this group has the will to claw and scratch to get points. Too many guys who do the easy things well, and refuse to do the hard things.

Good point, I hadn't thought of Muller, but he has known Shanny for years.

No doubt RC is part of the problem, but for sure IMO the players own most of this.

I can't argue any of that. Some of the biggest games were the worst no show efforts.

I hope you're right Bboy, but some of the habits of these guys are just basic traits players should have. I hate RC's system, and the way he allows vets to do as they please without consequence. Other things are completely on the players. Little fight on the boards, don't stand up for each other, and fly bys on the forecheck, zero backchecking pressure.


They need a coach who demands they play a certain way and if you don't you sit, regardless of who you are. I have little confidence many of these guys will change.

I wonder why guys who are so aggressive playing for the Marlies are less so after going up to the Leafs.

I have no clue what goes on in the room, but that's a flag for me.

Players know better than anyone else who is not doing their job, I see it as worse that RC didn't address it through benching. Then you get the "why should I do it if he doesn't have to" attitude.

Gilmour actually mentioned having a single poor defensive shift on the first shift of the night, Burns sat him until into the 2nd period.

Not a lot, Bboy, but what I have seen made these things fairly obvious. I hear a lot about Virtanen being similar.

I haven't seen a lot of the prospects, but I have seen enough to know comparing Richie to Biggs is not a good comparison. The only commonality is size. Richie has great hands, quick accurate shot.
