@DeclanK @mbails @wiski @MaxwellHowe Fully agree. Its not often he gets walked like that. But if he can make the adjustment and defend as well on the left I do like the benefit of him being on his forehand when breaking out of the zone.

@DeclanK @mbails think its possible to come up with a single grading system given the different styles of Dmen?

@wiski @MaxwellHowe @mbails his breakout will come along much quicker on the left side than his adjustment to defending the rush on the left side. Easily the toughest part of switching sides IMO

All of this Dion bashing drives me nuts. And every article I read (positive or negative) seems to be written after the author has found some form of stats that coincide with his personal view. 

Id like to ask/challenge the writers here at MLHS to do what might be the most in depth statistical analysis of any player thats ever been done. 

It would be awesome to see all available data/statistical information used in 1 definitive article. Maybe even come up with a way to weight all of the stats according to importance and providing an overall score that could be used to rate all defensmen. 

I realize that i haven't the first clue of how much work this would actually be but I've seen some amazingly in depth articles from you guys.  

1 definitive grading system for all Dmen to be measured against.

Lead the way boys :)

I think you have to take this with a grain of salt. 

He plays a lot of minutes.

He starts the majority of his shifts in his own end.

Against the leagues very best.

His best long term partner has been Gunnar who is at very best a decent #4 Dman

His centres are terrible defensively for the most part.

His coach has his head up his ass.


There is not 1 single Dman in the league who would have a positive corsi under these circumstances.


I would argue without Dion for Carlyl to lean on this team would have finished in the basement...


You can look at the numbers above and make your conclusions based solely on those but you could also paint the picture that considering the circumstances Dion does better than most with few who would be able to do significantly better.

Not to mention while while dealing with all of this he still produces offensively!

@Burtonboy not a bad idea to keep jakemo (TM?) together and give percy frontons spot until he is back. the kid is probably beside himself that he is still with the team. He may end up being sent back down but will have all the motivation he needs to work hard and make the final jump to the big club.

@DeclanK hope he pulls it together. him at a 40 point pace would be a big boost

can kozun play centre? call me crazy but i dont think there are many lines (if any) in the league that would stand a chance of keeping up with him phil and jvr.

Kozun is like a super high drive german shepherd who's only mission in life is a rubber disc. super impressed with him. ill say right now that he's got a faster first 3 steps than phil. dont think he'd win flat out but he is fast fast fast! if he isn't on the opening night roster to make room for a face puncher ( or any reason really) I'm not watching a game till he is!


(i know he isn't playing the 1c fyi would just be a fun experiment)

so many questions about our lineup. Some with more obvious answers. 

Any concensus on kontiola? 

crazy to think he could play with lups and kadri?? 

Ive watched every bit of video i can on the guy and he sees the game like a top 6 forward unquestionably. 

i also like the idea of leo and clarkson being 2/3 of a very useful grinding 3rd line with the potential to finish. 

so many possibilities!

What a shitty way to end the season. I had some pretty high hopes for this year... hopefully No-No gets his head out of his ass and makes some good moves. Not necessarily feasible but heres what id like to see.

A new Coach! Gunnar-Gone, Gleason-Gone, Franson-Gone


Dion - A legit #2 shutdown Dman please!

Gardiner - A capable stay at home guy (gunnar 2.0)

Rielly- Ranger

(one of the marlies)


1st line stays the same for better or worse

Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson(he gets 20 games next year before i write him off)

?-bolland-Kulimen

marlie-mcclement-marlie


I like kadri and i dont like trading young players with his skill but if he landed us kesler id make that deal.

Lupul-Kesler-clarkson could be a dominant 2nd line on just about any team in the league (assuming clarkson becomes himself again).

It would be nice to upgrade bozak but i just dont see it happening.


anyways time to dust off the clubs!

The amount of shit Dion takes is insane... heres a scenario

A defenceman plays 24 minutes a night. Starts 2 out of every 3 shifts in the defensive zone against the very best players in the league. (top in the league in REL QoC last two seasons) He leads his team in PK time.  This defenceman is a +5. His team is 28th in goals against. And he chips in aprox 35 points.....that team should definitely trade him, said nobody who knows anything about the game.

@Jon5200 @mbails  yup. is he killing penalties with the marlies? i think he's got potential there to be PK2 guy. no reason he can't put 8-10 minutes a game in next season. Hopefully this season is extra motivation for him to train even harder to  make the next step and be a full time NHLer

@Burtonboy @mbails  maybe i have some bias having watched him play in van many times over a 4 year span while i lived there. he's a kind of player who can pick an entire team up. not going to happen anyways though.

@Burtonboy @mbails  i definitely get what your saying. but kesler is a horse, lots of playoff experience, solid production through his career and still has enough in the tank to be part f a rebuild... not a huge fan of trading prospects and picks for vets but i think kesler would be a solid addition and worth it. but not for both kadri and gardiner

@Burtonboy @mbails thats steep. theres quite a bit id give for kesler including one of kadri or gardiner (not rielly) with 2 prospects and a 2nd (which i dont think we have)...one can dream i guess
