The Expendables

Expendables

Yesterday Kypreos passed along a nugget that the Leafs were aggressively investigating trades save for a group of untouchables that kind of made sense until you realized that Bozak was included and some high-profile players were not. Thanks to @mottysco, we now have The Expendables. These are those that Leafs brass has at various times either purged or been interested in purging. Not a bad squad.

The Flames Are Sh*t: Exhibit A

Sometimes a picture says a thousand words and sometimes it sums up an entire franchise with just one. A big glove tap to Mark Hulholland for capturing le mot juste to describe the Calgary Flames.

Another Pitiful Maple Leafs Stat

+

Not one Maple Leaf who played at least 8 games (10% of the season) started the majority of their shifts in the offensive zone. Not even one. By comparison, the Florida Panthers (my home team that's been pretty pitiful this season) have 18 players who have played at least 8 games and started the majority of their shifts in the offensive zone. I don't know about you, but to me, that sounds like a ridiculously pathetic stat that was definitely worth sharing with you guys.

Shot Volume Matters

Here is a simple table of five teams that have the same save percentage this season as well as the goals allowed by each. Approximately every 5.8 goals represents one win. That means that only based on shot volume the Leafs gave up 10 wins or 20 points compared to the Minnesota Wild.

Leafs' Season In A Nutshell

2

When things are going poorly sometimes you have to find a way to lighten the mood. These Leafs fans, watching their team drop an 8th straight game, decide to have a little fun with one of their friends by first making him stay in the bathroom for good luck and then pretending that the Leafs tied the game up. The fake goal is a favourite gag of mine but the look on the poor bastard's face is priceless. Via @josiahcyoung

Hey, you know that 2048 game that I'm always tweeting about? The one that has the stupid variations on it? Well, this one is amazing: All Phil Kessel. Via @D8rlene via Reddit

Oh good, in case you were wondering how Randy Carlyle's comments about James Reimer being "ok, just ok" went over in the Reimer camp... The good news? He's an RFA this summer. Ha! You're trapped sucker!
