For those anxiously counting the minutes to puck drop, here is an excellent Big Read piece on Nazem Kadri ICYMI.

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/big-read-nazem-kadri-going-prove-isnt-one-season-wonder/

Quote
There wasn’t much second-guessing last season, when he finished with two more goals than McDavid, and the 19th most league-wide, while also getting under the skin of many of the guys ahead of him in the scoring race. Among players who scored 30 or more goals, none started in the defensive end more than Kadri, and it isn’t even close. He had a career-high 62.6 per cent defensive-zone starts, and the next best in that group didn’t even crack the 50 per cent mark — Cam Atkinson of Columbus came in at 49.8.

Hello everyone looking forward to the season. Great to be back. Think it's going to be an exciting season. Tonight's game I hope they don't let Laine beat them especially on the PP. Should have someone take away his shot. Can't give him any room. Go Leafs.

Very impressed with the Leafs' forward lines.  Seems balanced and scarily opportunistic.  Kudos to Freddy Andersen for backing up a gittery defence in the early going, and a job very well-done by the PK units. 

Overall very satisfying road-opening win.

So back in the Kessel days, when the Leafs would win a game like this, they were lucky.  Now they are talented.  I understand there is a difference.  Basically, they still need to clean up their work in the defensive zone.

I know you are going through withdrawal from Griffith but don't make Hyman your new obsession. 

A) I had all but promised it this off season
B) It was legitimately good forechecking by Hyman to keep a dump in viable, freeing it up for Matthews to make a play.

I'll just leave this here...

Quote
Matthews was held back offensively last year partially because of how often he played with Zach Hyman, who was either snake-bitten or seriously lacks in finishing talent, depending whom you ask. Matthews set up Hyman for more inner-slot scoring chances than any other two players combined for last season, on which Hyman cashed in just four times on 56 chances at even strength.

That 7.14 shooting percentage would be rough from that area anyway, where the average shot beats goalies 22.6 per cent of the time, but add in pre-shot movement and you’re looking at an expected shooting percentage around 30 per cent for an average player.

That essentially means the impact of Hyman’s poor shooting last season was about 13 fewer goals for while Matthews was on the ice, and likely several more primary assists.

I don't know about that. The Leafs held a pretty good edge in shot attempts until the 3rd period when score effects likely took over. And even then the possession rates were basically even at the end of the game, which doesn't usually happen with a score like this. From what I watched their penalty kill definitely wasn't the greatest and was bailed out by Andersen a lot, but at 5-on-5 they seemed fine defensively. Admittedly, I was only able to watch the 1st period.

Mike might need some work on his Canadian geography; that's a 30-hour drive.

Maybe a 30-hour bike ride. It's only 485 miles or so. 8 hours, 10 with stops.

Yep they were not driving to T.O.  Once drove from Thunder Bay to Regina and that was a 14 hour drive.

Geeze, Marleau couldn't have sprung for a couple of plane tickets?

I dunno. Driving adds a lot of extra hours away from tending to his farm. I'm assuming he has a farm.

Where do you suppose the nearest airport to Aneroid even is?

I'm assuming bullfrog was thinking the game was in Toronto, not Winnipeg.

Regina most likely.  (3 hr drive from Aneroid)  Only 5 more hours (driving time) to Winterpeg.  Flight would be 1 hr, plus check in time before, having to hail a cab after etc.  Probably would only save a few hours.

Yeah, I looked at a map and Aneroid is practically a straight line west from Winnipeg. A long drive, sure, but not a tricky one.

Remember the game day threads where it would be a bunch of lamenting about how the Leafs were going to get some top end talent, and not a discussion on how Patrick Marleau's parents got to the game?

I mean, game day threads have always had room for nonsense.

Oh it's great stuff, don't get me wrong.  This discussion is really helping me plan my trip out west next summer.

ooops... I guess I owe Mike an apology. Ya, i was thinking Toronto. Probably annoyed from a recent trip to Toronto where I have my bi-monthly conversation with a taxi driver to explain "no......not North Bay, Thunder Bay."

Last drive to BC from Collingwood, Kirkland Lake, Thunder Bay (great drive around North Superior),  Regina (that was a long drive 14 hours), Lake Louise, and the final day through the Kicking Horse and Rogers Passes (spectacular) and onto Kelowna. I love the Okanogan.
