At least the goal seems to have gone to the legs of the top line

And more good PK'ing from Winnik, Komarov and Holland

@Leafs_17 @Alec Brownscombe @Cameron19 @DeclanK Really obvious the team's only hope is to roll 4 lines with some speed and skill on each. This is garbage roster management.

@Cameron19 @Alec Brownscombe @DeclanK  Obsessed with line matching without a line that can match up with top lines. Interesting.

@Bruffins That's the number one thing that chart from MimicoHero tells me.

They have to do a dramatic mix up of the top line and top 6. Time to get creative, we've seen for long enough, dating back to last season, that this isn't going to produce winning hockey.

@Mcost61 @vinoa @newkb Not so much "defensive guys" per se, just good two-way possession players.

@mr_hanie Typical in the sense that Leafs fans always do this to their top talent -- team's flawed? start with obsessing over the weaknesses of the best parts of the team! Yes, those are what's holding us back.. definitely.


Kessel hasn't been good enough in the first 6 games, absolutely. But this shit is ridiculous. 

17 hours, 18 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Taking on the toughs

@mr_hanie K, this is getting stupid.

Kessel has his flaws, no doubt. 

But he needs to have a better defensive center or a winger on the other side who isn't just as weak defensively as he is.
Only they can't put up 35-40 goals, 80 points year in, year out.

To compare him to Yakupov is a joke and typical of this fan base.

@ninepaces Just chatting with AP and Declan and these lines came up


Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
JVR-Kadri-Clarkson
Komarov-Santo-Winnik
Ashton-Holland-Frattin


Takes Clarkson out of the only situation he's looked half decent in, but that's nice looking overall.

@loomx Yeah, that's the more realistic scenario. I just enjoy the thought of Carrick being on the team because he deserved it out of camp.

@Whalz Yeah, not sure what your point is here. How a team performs comes out in the wash with these numbers. It's not like the Leafs' corsi or fenwick numbers are good right now even if they're marginally improved. 

It's true there's more than shot attempts that go into winning and losing games, if that's your point.

@mtommy  Winnik and Santorelli will be effective possession players, too.

It's both good and kind of sad just how much Santorelli stands out in a good away among our C group right now.

Individual games when it comes to Corsi mean little but still couldn't help but notice Phaneuf with 20% ZS finished with 67% CF. Looked like he did reasonably well scoring chance wise too.
