Michael Langlois of Vintage Leaf Memories has put together a quick review of each former Leaf's performance so far in this season's playoffs. Here's a sample:
The Coyotes were gone in four against the Red Wings. Ex-Leaf winger Lee Stempniak went pointless in the series, averaging about 12+ minutes a game. He finished the series a minus 3.We all remember he was on a roll when he joined the Coyotes and put up a lot of points in their playoff push last season. While he certainly has contributed, he wasn’t a major point-producer this past season, though he did net 19 goals.
