@Bruffins @SatsMundin  Corsi has been shown to correlate more to future victories than victories themselves.  They certainly aren't the be all end all but as you said, it's absurd that the Leafs didn't spend a dime of their analytics budget. In a cap league, the richesty teams have to use their resources outside of player salaries to give themselves a competitive advantage and the fact that hte leafs didnt even look into it is absolutely unbelievable.

@Bruffins @SatsMundin  LOL, I'm aware.  I said it during the last summer, to defend Grabo and Mac A, and noone had any of it. I was laughed out of the forum.  Look how that worked out.

I came back in January, predicting our demise and was again laughed out of the forum.  I think people will start to see the light soon.  Many I'm sure deny adv stats because they know the Leafs don't use them and don't want to think that what the Leafs are doing is stupid.  But with Shanahan embracing them, and (hopefully) a new coach who does too, I think people will turn around on the issue.

@Bruffins @SatsMundin  Tom Renney is certainly up there.. Rangers had great possession numbers under him, and he's been working under the very best in Babcock the last couple of years.

@Bruffins @SatsMundin  yeah, the man is clearly an idiot.  I'm really hoping McKenzie's right and he's fired in the next few days.  That is one of the 15,000 reasons he should be fired.

@lukethenuke @Bruffins @SatsMundin  this is exactly what I wanted to do.  It's looking more and more like the Biggs pick was just a wash, doesn't seem like there are gonna be too many really good players in the 5 or so picks directly behind him.  I liked our strategy of taking late-birthday guys and hope we continue that this year, and maybe bring it in to the first round.  Really hoping we go high risk/reward with this pick.

@Bruffins @SatsMundin  exactly.  I was really hoping we'd take someone with 1st/2nd line potential.  This year, I really hope we take a home run swing in the first round and avoid going after yet another lower ceiling player.  Thanks to Randy, we've got another high pick and I hope we can use it well.. Ehlers would be really nice.

@Komas Taberle @SatsMundin  Biggs looks horrible in the AHL, but you're right, Gauthier likely will be in the NHL.. However, we already have plenty of 3rd/4th line prospects, and I would have much preferred to take a higher ceiling prospect, even if it required a riskier player like Petan or Shinkaruk.

@Bruffins @SatsMundin  To be honest, I wanted to take a higher risk/reward type player.. Shinkaruk or Petan was my hope.

Wow. Great to see. Looks like Johnson can make up for the dud Gauthier pick much like Leivo hopefully will make up for the dud Biggs pick. Also good to see Nilsson was in the running, our scouting in Sweden seems to be doing well, although the jury is still out on these guys.

@theacs1966  I love that 2 of the games we got shut out so there's literally no chance you can blame either game on him.
