Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Leafs Playoffs - Casual Fan Edition
« on: April 14, 2018, 12:20:56 AM »
Hi,

I'm a longtime member (since 1999, I think) and I noticed a post in the gameday thread for Game 1 about how it was a pretty slow day for a Leafs playoff game.

I think it's because of those who enjoy advanced stats shouting opinions down with "Corsi, Corsi, Corsi, math, math, math" whenever a new member expresses an opinion. I love the advanced stats and think they have value, but it seems to me that anyone who signs on here to voice their thoughts on the team these days just get mocked and have numbers thrown at their face. It never used to be this way.

This used to be a great community for all Leafs fans, and it seems if you post an opinion now that might go against the advanced stats, it turns hostile.

Anyway, that's my opinion (without "the numbers" to prove it), but for anyone who just wants to vent about the team, and who should or shouldn't play, based on the ol' fashioned eye test, please post here.

No "advanced stats" needed. Is that OK?

And here's the first opinion: I don't care how bad Matt Martin is at hockey, I think they need him on the fourth line against Boston.

Discuss.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Leafs at World Championships

I know most people don't care about this tournament, and I can't really argue, but I watch it every year anyway. I'm hoping the Leafs will have some representation on Team Canada - Rielly and Bozak particularly - as I feel the tournament definitely helps players develop their game. I assume Bernier would've been a lock for the starter's job, until he got hurt. Maybe Reimer goes?

Anyway, this thread is for those who care to post when Leaf players are confirmed as to be playing with any of the teams.

Not sure if this is posted anywhere else, but pretty good article. Maybe a rare diamond-in-the-rough find?

General NHL News & Views / Vladimir Krutov dead at 52
« on: June 06, 2012, 12:04:27 PM »
First I've heard of him in a long while, actually.

I was just a kid, but I still remember hearing a real excitement about Krutov joining the NHL, as there were those who thought he was the best player not playing in the league at that point. He never really lived up to that billing, but he had some great international success.
