Damn it man, I’m a metrician, not a magician!

Well, it’s been a wild ride on twitter for the past few days. If you follow the hockey analytics crowd on twitter you probably...

Goodbye Grabovski

It's days like these where you miss Brian Burke. The straight-shooting, loyalist ex-GM of the Leafs had his faults (eg. being too loyal), but...

On whether I’m an apologist or thinking rationally about the Bernier trade

So today, a trade happened. I don’t want to delve too deeply into a breakdown of the trade – mostly because I think this is...

Friday Morning Mashup: No No Norris

It must almost be the offseason, because NHL Awards have once again caused a stir regarding the voting structure and overall legitimacy of the...

Scattered Thoughts: Eakins, Marlies, Komarov, Lessons from Boston

Can’t OutBruin the Bruins

After last night there is no shortage of critics jumping on the uselessness of the likes of Mark Fraser, Mike Kostka, Colton Orr and...

Time to Tweak?

I’ve been an advocate of Randy Carlyle hockey since last season, even when the results didn’t immediately improve after he replaced Ron Wilson. It...

First Line Scoring by the Numbers

When the Leafs get a couple of days off, bloggers have a little bit of extra time to take a wider look at things....

Accepting the fact that the Leafs will always have an enforcer

It’s painful for me to admit, but as much I will continue to bitch about how useless Colton Orr, Mike Brown, and (presumably) Frazer...
