The Toronto Maple Leafs were amongst leaders in 2009 for all the wrong categories. The Buds were the most scored upon team in 2009, playing an NHL leading 13 overtime games (2-11) record, and NHL trailing overtime winning percentage (.154).

Broken down after the jump is how the Leafs fared in the calendar year 2009.

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year to everyone!

Easy to think of the 2008-09 President’s Trophy Winner, San Jose, Washington, Chicago or Pittsburgh amassed the most points in the calendar year 2009 .. right?

Wrong. The Devils ran the table in 2009, with a remarkable set of leading numbers … yet they won only three playoff games. Something to consider how good a team has to be to succeed in the NHL.
