It’s all Willy’s fault!  No, the problem with the Leafs lies much deeper than Willy Ny.  Mirtle puts it in perspective:

Quote
...What’s interesting about Toronto’s slump, however, is it is probably more goals against driven than goals for.

The power play is struggling, sure, and Nylander has rarely hit the scoresheet, but the Leafs’ goal scoring is only down 0.34 per game over the past 20 games. Their goals against, meanwhile, are up 0.59 per game.

That's pretty cool.

Not sure what it's showing me, but it's pretty cool. Odd that his only goal is a short side shot, top shelf. I assume that's what the green one is showing.

I'm not sure either. I think it's perhaps proving that he doesn't always miss the net.

I think it’s a proprietary tool (Stathletes) that visualizes shot locations and trajectories overlaid together. Similar to the heat maps for locations, but 3D and unsmeared. Meghan’s brother is John Chayka of the Coyotes.

Further down thread she explains that the missed shots were filtered out because it would be very cluttered. The green line is indeed the goal, which she highlights further in the thread.

Here’s a recent sampling of Matthews’ locations and trajectories.

Always great to see a woman reduced to her looks but beyond that wouldn't a babeaholic be someone addicted to Babes as opposed to one herself?

She started a stats tracking company and has a pretty good handle on how the game is played and analyzed and would probably be a better front office pick than many incumbent hockey men.

I'd say Edmonton probably wouldn't do this trade, which when you think about it is probably a good enough reason for the Leafs to not want to make it either.

Oilers are up against the cap so they couldn't afford him anyway.

I kinda like Nurse but he's more Kapanen in value than Nylander IMO.
