Friday Fun with Numbers

.937Leafs team save percentage over all situations.

1 – Number of teams to ever break .930 over a full season: the Boston Bruins in 2010-11 with exactly .930. Obviously, overall save percentage has been steadily climbing in recent seasons.

32 – Total goals against through 14 games (2.29 GA/G).

43 – Total goals against if the Leafs team save percentage was .915 – a mark still good enough for 10th overall in the league (all situations). A drop from 3rd to 10th in team save percentage would take the Leafs from 6th to 23rd in goals against per game.

47 – Total goals for through 14 games (3.36 GF/G).

275 - The goals pace the Leafs are on over 82 games. If sustained, it would give the Leafs the most goals in a single season since Washington’s 313 in 2009-10. Only 2 teams have surpassed the 275 goal mark since the 2007-08 season (not including goal paces from 2013 truncated season).

187 – The Leafs current goals against pace. 187 has been good enough for a top 5 standing in the league in every season since the 2004-05 lockout.

2,958 – Current shots against pace for the Leafs (36.1/game). If sustained (surely not), it would be the highest shots against total since the 1992 Sharks, fresh off expansion, allowed 3,080 and finished 11-71-2. The worst shots against total since the turn of the millennium? Atlanta’s 2,911 in 2001-02, when they finished 19-47-11.

- 9.6 – The Leafs average shot margin. Better than only Buffalo.

8 - Wins when outshot (leads the league, 8-4, 0.66 win percentage when outshot). Best record when outshot in a majority of (>41) games? Boston’s 32-6-5 mark when outshot in the 2008-09 season.

9 - Number of assists by Cody Franson. Tied for 2nd in the NHL among defencemen.

10 - Dion Phaneuf’s plus/minus. Tied for 3rd in the league among defencemen.

(Almost) 10: Years since the Leafs last beat the Vancouver Canucks (November 24, 2003).

Bonus fun:

53 - Phil Kessel’s current goal scoring pace over 82 games.

6 - Leafs forwards on pace for 25+ goals.

Friday Morning Links:

- The Leafs have the Buffalo Sabres three times, the New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders and Nashville on the docket in the month of November. The Leafs should be able to keep it rolling with a schedule like that, and maybe even outshoot the odd team.

- Dave Bolland is a Leaf now, through and through. No fraternizing with Barack Obama and his ex teammates.

- Carter Ashton will attend a hearing for his hit on Derek Smith on Wednesday night in Calgary. Only a 2 minute boarding call was assessed on the hit.

- Coaches and GMs on the hot seat. DGB’s latest.

- Get your Keep Calm & Corsi’s Wrong T-Shirt or Long Sleeve (women’s available).

- Check out Morgan Rielly going on a rush and scoring as a novice player. If you missed it when we posted this last season, there’s also hilarious clip of Phaneuf at 9 years old launching clappers from the blueline, including one that almost takes out a parent in the stands.

I think tonight is the night the Leafs come out and play a complete game. I think they will finish their checks and the forwards will help our D. With Kulemin back in there, and Clarkson, I think it will make a difference on others. Has anyone heard if Fraser is in?

Who does Carlyle play against the Sedins tonite

I think he rotates Bolland/ Clarkson/ Lupul  and  Mclememt /kulie/Raymond

Hit them early and often

If Scott didn't get suspended for jumping Kessel I don't see how emery gets suspended for beating up Holtby. Miller didn't really want to fight Bernier but I didn't hear anyone complaining about that.

I'm not a fan of shit like this but just saying how I read the situation.

What's up with Calgary putting MacDonald on waivers?  Who replaces him?

@Jmessih 

Wish I could see how that Schenn fight started, cause it looks like the Capitals player is watching the Emery/Holtby fight and Schenn just drops his gloves.

Would be interesting to see if he just sucker punched him or waited for him to drop his gloves too.

Sorta like last Saturday against the Pens?

@Zep2 Cant wait to see the Sedin sisters handle this unsuccessfully,,Lupal  and Kadri etc should have a great night

@Zep2 You know Bolland will be licking his chops, I expect a big game from him tonight. Gotta have a win tonight to carry us through until Friday.

@Zep2 

It's a road game, so he won't always have the option of line-matching, but it'll obviously be Raymond/Bolland/Clarkson when he gets the chance.

@Zep2 I'd like to see Kulemin/Bolland/Clarkson on them, but Kulemin probably isn't going to be right up to speed for a week or two yet, so maybe not.  He hasn't skated much, so I'm expecting he'll need a grace period.

@Jay_Berg He won't get suspended.  No one is saying he will.  They're saying he should.

@Jay_Berg 

Scott didn't get suspended becuase of Kessel's stick work and the fact he got jumped by 3 guys before he could. And if Bernier was in the opposing end in the corner squaring off against a guy who had no intrest I would say suspended him as well. But for Emery to say to the press "I told him to protect himself" is above and beyond.

@JMAC17 I wonder if they might be trying to acquire Ryan Miller.  They wouldn't give up a 1st rounder, but they have some nice pieces they could move if they thought they could lock Miller up for 5 years.

@JMAC17 I guess they have decided to challenge Buffalo for last place overall

They have a young guy Ramo i think.

@JMAC17 with how awful their goaltending has been they may be better off skipping the goalie and playing 6 on 5 the whole game lol

@.JVR. @B_Leaf If they play that level tonight, I don't see how they leave without the W.

Sort of...a little more physical tonight I think...but yes

@.JVR. @rustynail totally different situation though and Scott never actually got to fight and didn;t need to go 200 ft to do it

Jantz

@theacs1966 @Jantz So much talent up front on that team. I have to assume there is no chemistry at all on that team. I noticed when we beat them that Simmonds was acting all sucky after missing a few chances....... I remember thinking that i wouldn't like that from one of our players.

I hate the Flyers.

@Cameron19

If Bozak were healthy, the ideal shutdown line would be McClement/Bolland/Kulemin, but that means one of Raymond, Clarkson or Lupul would have to play on the fourth line.

Zep2

@Cameron19 @Zep2 That would be  great line, but Torts is playing the Sedins 25 minutes a nite.

Im just wondering won't spread the responsibility around a bit

Exactly. If kuli not up to speed, put in Raymond, who is quick enough and should be familiar with their habits

Splitting hairs in the eyes of the league. End result was two guys dropping their gloves. Again fully agree it was bullshit

@Cameron19 @Jay_Berg 

The funny thing is this is overshadowing what happened in FLA. Where Jonthan Herbeadeau hit barret jackman from behind and got 2 mins for boarding. Same thing as Ashton i'm waiting to see the suspension on this

@Cameron19 @JMAC17 There's got to be another shoe to drop here.  I'm not so sure Mac makes it through waivers.  There are a few teams (like Carolina) that need NHL goaltending.  Nas, Edm, Rangers?

Luongo is over rated...the test will be breaking down their D.

@rustynail

It's not a totally different situation though.

Both incidents had one individual that wanted to fight and one that didn't.  

Just because Kessel managed to find him off with his stick, before his teammates could save him, doesn't mean Scott didn't intend to mess him up.

@rustynail @.JVR. 

If you watch the TSN highlight video. You can clearly see Simmonds hitting everyone and anything after the puck drop. He snapped which than set off the chain of events. 

Jantz

@Ryan @Jantz @theacs1966 Yeah I noticed that......... he finally showed up once they were down by a TD.

JMAC17

@theacs1966 @Cameron19 @JMAC17 Right, there are enough teams in need that I agree he get claimed...which is why its weird he is on waivers...they are left with Ramo...who sucks...and some no namers in the A.

Cam might be right...something has to be up
