Has Dave Nonis secretly joined the Corsiati?

I'm not deaf to the criticisms of Dave Nonis and the Leafs front office in general but I did find it interesting that when looking at the Leafs Extra Skater page from 2013, Nonis has almost rid the organization of every negative corsi rel player save for Ashton, Lupul and Phaneuf. Orr and McLaren are still here but with the spat of signings today (Bodie, Santorelli, Petri), it's possible the Leafs are prepared to run a 4th line consisting of actual hockey players (Bodie actually had a positive corsi rel last year). I think Nonis has been spending a few minutes a day on Extra Skater.

Until public enemy number one is fired, its hard to see this team being anywhere near the red line possession-wise (unless we're talking about their own goal line) but it could be fun to see how much possession improves when Randy gets canned next January.
