No trashing of "analytics weenies" in both the game blog and the ALN? Feels strange on this site.

He has super under-rated two-way play. Pacioretty is a monster with or without the puck. Long live the Subban-Price-Pacioretty trifecta, and may we soon make it a dominant quartet with Galchenyuk.

Me too, mate.

No, Dale Weise is NOT a top-6 forward. He has shown that he CAN play with Pacioretty, who served him the first goal on the platter and beautifully finished his pass. Yes, his size and nose for the net do help in some situations. And yes, they were good in the last 2 games together. However, as a long-term solution, putting a 4th-liner on the first line will not make help us. Ride them as long as they are hot, but once Dale cools off let's look for a different setup.

Bit worried about that Leafs skid. Hopefully they'll draft another Luke Schenn, not a new Sundin. They are pretty much a lock to draft top 10

I am not following your logic. It's not like Eric Staal is 5'7 twenty-year-old rookie that didn't want to fight. It was a consensual fight.

He has been good. But why did the coach start him back to back? It very rarely works. The research has shown that backups have better save % than starters in back to backs. And why did I start him - I was leading comfortably. Oh man...

Jaro Halak (yesterday) and Petr Mrazek (today) just clearly prove that you should NEVER start an eastern European goalie on back-to-back games. Especially on my freakin fantasy team!!! Mrazek cost me the round this week.

One more scorer like Pacioretty, with healthy Subban and Price, puts us to the top-5 category in the league, mate. However, Pacioretty himself is one of the best scorers in the league at the moment. Players like him are not easy to find.

The problem is that MT's system is a very, very poor system.
