Tyler Dellow has noted this before, in that the difference between Toronto's tank and other recent ones (that still haven't gotten off the ground yet, e.g. Buffalo) was that Toronto nerfed their goal results with a low shooting percentage while increasing their shot differential (CF%); i.e. they built the structure to generate chances, but actively suppressed shooting talent from their roster for the bulk of the season. Lucking into Matthews was the cherry on top.

Replacing all the bad players with good players probably helped too.

Natch.

BUT did we replace them all yet? Why did we then add some more bad players?

They added good bad players, not bad bad players.

I think Mitch Marner is going to have his coming out party tonight.

Someone on Sports Net said Mathews has a history with his back, is this true?
