So apart from the games he's produced in he hasn't produced. Got it.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

thank you, Arn. It was just too hard for me to figure out.

If Matthews hadn't scored all those goals, he wouldn't be leading the league in goals.

Great quote. Clueless.

It's like a lot of people don't even watch the games.

Bottom line is the 2nd unit is not producing plain and simple. You've got 18 million dollars tied up into it for Nylander and Tavares so more is expected. Do I hate Willy? No but he just needs to elevate his game and again get engaged more. Two goals in game #1. Two goals in the next 14 games and as I read on another forum he's producing at his rookie pace. It's not just him JT has been average. Montreal as much as I hate them have a tough D and are physical in front of the net. Doesn't bode well for Willy's game. Hopefully he gets it going tonight which I wouldn't be surprised if he does. A 3 game series against Ottawa is maybe what's needed.

1: The second line isn't producing

2: Their point totals are pretty good

1: It's not about point totals, it's about their play when not scoring!

2: Their underlying possession numbers are pretty good

1: It's not about possession numbers, their point totals aren't spread out enough!

2: Why is it better to have more spread out point totals?

1: THEY'RE NOT PRODUCING. I WATCH THE GAMES AND YOU DON'T! WAHHHHHHHH!

Just for fun, I charted CFrel% vs oiSV% over the weekend (since it's the 1/4 point of the season), and Tavares and Nylander score well in both categories:



As an aside, sheltered minutes and limited games, but when Travis Dermott is on the ice 5v5, Leaf goalies stop 98% of the shots they face...5.5 points higher than the team average!

No I'm not. Guess other posts and other sites a lot must be as dumb as me. Keep living in your fantasy world boys. Maybe you're ok with mediocrity but I'm not.

No worries man. I totally understand the club has been under-performing vs expectations for what seems like forever; so the frustration is understandable; it's just that the team is doing pretty well this year, and a loss here and there is expected, especially with the tight schedule, so cherry picking those doesn't seem appropriate. How about once they lose 5 straight, we'll vent a little. Deal?

Really I swear this isn?t me, though I wish it were

I do have a theory about Willy softness (phrasing).

He has played underage and undersized for pretty much his entire development career, so of course he isn?t going to naturally play the body on puck retrievals or stop ups ? it never worked for him as a 15 year old against 18 year olds, or as a 17 year old in the SEL alongside his dad. What he did do a lot of was zip around the ice with the puck glued to his stick and setting up teammates for tap ins.

In the past two offseasons, Willy has bulked up quite a bit and lost some speed. He has converted it into resilience in receiving physical pressure on the boards to come away with pucks when most players would turn it over. So he won?t necessarily initiate a hit the way Hyman always does and Matthews has started to, but he can definitely shrug off most of what defensemen are trying to do to him when he is carrying it in.

I'm not going to lie losses tick me off. Is that the case here no. We are #1 in the league no-one more happy about than me. What I do hate is a lack of effort and some aren't cutting it right now. I don't expect a lot from some of your fringe players because that's what they are. But when you're paid handsomely then I expect a little more. Everyone has an off game but at some point you have to start questioning production.
