General NHL News & Views / NHL.TV

Hey, I live in the US and want to watch Leaf games via my apple TV + sometimes ipad when I travel.

Is buying NHL.TV the right way to do this?

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Leafs Stats
August 17, 2011, 11:53:54 PM
I've always thought it would be nice to have a thread were we can discuss various Leafs stats, including advanced stats such as Corsi, Zone Starts, Quality of Competition and others... so here it is.   

One recent post I found quite interesting was from Pension Plan Puppets which summarized Leafs shot locations visually.  See here:


One interesting thing you can observe is the effectiveness and discipline of the Kulemin-Grabbo-MacCarthur line.  They never shoot from bad angles and rarely at any significant distance.  Kulemin's shots form the most dramatic picture.  You can take a ruler and measure the maximum angle at which he will take a shot completely cleanly.

I also found Bozak's shot distribution interesting.  He got quite a lot of shots from the good areas right in front of the net.  Maybe he was a little unlucky not to have scored more last year.

Kessel on the other hand, just blankets the O-Zone with his shooting.  I think when he goes on those long droughts it's because he's not getting his shots from in close.

Here's the overall team shot chart -- not as interesting as the individual break downs.

What is Sundin doing these days?  I would love to have him back to comment on the leafs now and then.
