At some point you have to take the shooting percentage as a reason to break them up not keep them together in that regard I do also point at coaching.

This season Marner and Matthews combined for 1 goal on 54 shots and last season it was 2 for 41. Playoffs are too short to not switch them up with that kinda shooting percentage at the least if you break them up one of them will get some time away from the top shut down guys.

I think it's a tad worrisome that the guy getting the best looks by far on that Matthews/Marner line was Zach Hyman, and if you're Price and the Habs, you take that all day.


A smarter person will have to explain to me exactly how this works, but it's been suggested that this was by design, that the Habs left Hyman alone to make him an attractive target and Matthews/Marner fell for it every time.

I think Dubas and the Leafs outsmarted themselves playing the expansion draft game.

They gave up little for McCann (Hallander and a 7th), which is good, and used him as cannon fodder so they can keep Kerfoot and Holl. Seattle bit and took McCann. But was it worth it? No guarantee Holl would've been taken, and McCann would've been a nice add to the forward corps.

Makes no sense to me whatsoever. Just risk losing Holl then. It isn't worth this.

If I didn't know better - and I usually don't :fry: - I would get the impression that Dubas realizes he's stuck himself in a corner wrt to the cap, and is at a loss with how to improve the team while keeping the top 4. So he's taken on the tried and tested trick of "looking busy" and hope the core figures it out..

I don't know if anyone bothers with Steve Dangle et co here, but he made an interesting observation that during the Matthews era, the Leafs have led in the 1st round almost each year, only to lose.

I'm reading the Leafs finally did away with the last of the "Hunter picks" on defense, trading the guy's rights to Boston for future considerations.
