Just something to remember from time to time.

Good lord.

It landed us Matthews.

No forwards remain from that particular lineup...only 2 defensemen...Marincin of all people!!!

No Marincin AND no Ceci???

Stuff's about to get real better....

I took the liberty of fixing that for you.  ;)

keeping the word real works as well!

Let's not forget that the Leafs are expending valuable assets to fix the backup goalie problem, and have lost valuable points in the standings this year and last year, when the Leafs already had a passable/acceptable solution.
This is a horse that needs to die already. The logic behind keeping Sparks was sound, and it made no sense to let the AHL Goaltender of the year leave for nothing vs an aging career backup potentially in decline. It didn't work out. That's it.

I agree this decision has been debated - but you and I disagree about the consequences of that decision.  That sound decision has ultimately led us to where we are today - expending assets to fix that "sound" and "logical" decision.   

Just because it doesn't fit a narrative, you just can't conclude that "It didn't work out. Thats it". 
It didn't work out as Sparks (and subsequently free asset Hutchinson) were not the answer, and we are now expending our limited assets to fix those decisions.

this is mostly speculation.

feel free to poke holes in my theory...

but  Maybe Mookie Betts  won't be that good a hitter
if he doesn't know what pitch is coming ahead of time?

This line of thinking is exactly where my mind went ...

Definitely one of the greatest of all time.

Gonna be a bit peeved if they win the lottery as a result.

No way they'll still be fine*.

Let me try another way.

Stacked PP1 has a 20% chance of scoring. 
Not so stacked PP2 has a 10% chance of scoring. 

If PP1 gets off the ice around 1 minute if they don't score, then the coach is inherently giving them about 50/50 split in ice time.  That is my issue...you are giving PP1 and PP2 equal opportunity to score in terms of ice time, yet there is a significant difference in skill.  My solve is that you either have to balance the skill OR over weight on the ice time allocations to PP1 (i.e. they don't get off at 1 minute...they get off at 1:30 or so).

The numbers you are looking at are absolute and will be different because of either the PP1 or PP2 scoring (which of course will happen).  Its inherent in those numbers that PP1 will have more time on the ice (as I showed above).
