There needs to be a breakdown of the shots further. We all remember Jason Blake crossing the blue line firing a weak shot into the goalie's belly. Whistle, line change end of any threat no scoring chance but a shot on goal. I think he led the leafs in shots but struggled to score!!
Shots aren't always the best indicator of a game. They can certainly be but they can be deceiving as well.

Hi Everybody! Raining in Plam Springs and sun in TO?
Anyone know what the buyout will be for the lasy 2 years of Clarkson's contract. The middle couple of years is at 7mil per but it drops off in years 6 7 I believe. the buyout should be cheap ... a mil a year or so? If thats the case not such a bad cap contract, especially if the cap climbs ..... like it has almost every year.

@MikeGartner11 @palmspringsleafer lol egg-zackly!! he wasn't aiming!! Head down and shoot it as hard as he can! Glass score clock, team mate just as long as its hard ..... bobby orr never hit Phil Esposito once in front! Shot was never higher than your ankles and Phil got what 76 from 5 feet out?

@DWCMLHS @palmspringsleafer and Calgary gave him away for a bag of pucks and now we are shopping him .... tough minutes yes ...... pk yes ...... keep him? no problem ...... but would love others to be ahead of him on the pp ... again I do like Dion just not at his next contract and not on the pp
@MikeGartner11 @palmspringsleafer Bet Lupul would love to see him infront at the next practise!
I like Dion ...but he cant handle the puck as well as others .... and if it were Gards and franson then they would be all over franson ..... and now you have Gards leading a 4 on 3 with the puck on his stick, instead of Dion putting one in the glass or flubbing it away. When Mike Keenan was my coach if a dman put a shot higher than your shins .... next practise he had to stand in front of the net and everyone got to take slapshots at him as he tried to tip or screen. In peewee they teach you to roll your wrists over and keep it low .... Dion was sick that day i think. Get Dion his 20 mins a game but zero on the pp thanks ...... we have better now!
@DWCMLHS @palmspringsleafer completely agree with all you said but Dion is going to want 7.5 mil at least for 8 years and thats what doesnt work for me. MR will be on entry level and then 2nd contarct money .... its all about the cap and Dion is not where i want to spend long term. If our dmen were better he wouldnt see as much ice. Power play?? are you kidding me? he should never see the ice on the PP for no other reason he has no idea where his shot is going!
120 degrees here in Plam Springs today! But talking hockey and watching the draft!! then on the ice at 7:15pst PERFECT day! (other than the 120!)
Special dmen are more "special" than special forwards! Keep MR but Dion? I would package Dion
