Good interview from Dubas here, video and transcribed: http://mapleleafshotstove.com/2015/07/09/kyle-dubas-on-frederik-gauthier-william-nylander-and-more/

He’s a better player in that regard [advanced statistics]. There’s a couple players in this year’s draft that were eligible and then there’s a guy like Frederik, where people who are pure analytics people would say, “he’s not the type of guy you would suggest taking in that spot,” but if you go down to the shot attempts and the possession parts of it, he’s a guy that charts out extremely well. It’s just an interesting kind of paradox with where we’re at with hockey and advanced statistics. Frederik is a guy that’s a prime example, he’s a polarizing player in that regard.

I've been down on Gauthier myself, but this is exactly what I was saying in regards to Lawson Crouse too. It is really interesting to see the largely analytics crowd get on these guys for not scoring when if we were able to better track things like corsi in the juniors they'd likely be pretty high on that list. Granted I think that applies to Crouse a little more than Gauthier, but funny to see Dubas notice the same "paradox" as he says.

Would anyone else be really in favour of Kyle Dubas showing up once a week on air to give us an update on the prospects and chatting about analytics and hockey philosophy?

Dubas says Nylander will play C for Marlies next season.

That's great news...I was really hoping for that.

He's progressive enough, maybe he could be talked into doing a weekly podcast.  Something along the lines of TSNs hockey analytics podcast.

Has Mitch not played centre on a regular basis in London?  I hope he does well enough to remain and develop into a 1st line centre for us.

The way that this Leaf season is likely to go, I think i'm going to be more interested in the Marlies than I have been.

And by have been, I mean practically zero, so do they still play at Ricoh?

I guess the bit question is will Leafs TV every broadcast a game again and if not will they milk us for Marlies TV so we see the team we know is the future?  I will cancel Leafs TV and buy the Marlie TV brand if so.

Are you discounting possible chemistry on the big team?

One of the guys that I work with was in Collingwood last week and took in some of the camp.

So not surprisingly, Nylander and Marner separate themselves from the pack.  He didn't know what the name was, but he said there was a 6'2-6'4 big defenseman that was a real standout as well.

My colleague's brother-in-law works for the town of Collingwood, and helped organize the event.  He said that not only did the Leafs change up the drills and activities, they got rid of any trainer that was out of shape.  They apparently wanted the optics to be that to be a part of the organization, you have to train and eat well.  I guess this ties in with the culture shift that Shanahan has been talking about.

My guess is Loov.

I'd guess Valiev.
