Guilt Trip:

--- Quote from: hobarth on March 14, 2022, 02:51:58 PM ---Simmonds and Spezza aren't decent enough for even 4th line duty anymore, the puck lives in TO zone when they're on the ice together.

Simmonds and Spezza have a CF% of 51.84%. 177 SCF, 157 SCA in all scenarios. Anytime your 4th line guys are on the plus side of 50%, it's a good thing.

TO had one of the best goalies in the NHL, TO's defensive #s were awesome earlier in the year, that's the past, what's also in the past is that TO hasn't progressed beyond the 1st round of the playoffs in eons. Simmonds and Spezza aren't living up to the possession figures they have now because their best numbers were from earlier in the season, not how they've been playing now. Load management problem, maybe, but who can afford to have 2 or any players that can't play everyday when healthy. I'd rather see Robertson and Anderson playing and learning now.
