  1. And people say HFboard is a cesspool.
  2. Bo watch: 2-4, with 2HR bumping his hitting average to .309.
  3. I don’t know why you would bring up Leivo’s advance numbers as “pure” stats, when he was playing heavily sheltered minutes, on the 4th line in Toronto. The only thing Leivo got going over Lucic is his age and the structure of his contract. I think his lack of production is overemphasize. Yes, his offensive numbers has fallen off the face of the earth, but you just can’t look at goals and points as the whole story. Creating chances for your team is also important and he’s actually one of the best on his teams in doing so. He’s ranked second on the team (only behind McDavid) in scoring chance created at even strength with 50%, and leads the team with high-danger scoring chance, with 49%. His on-ice save percentage is pretty decent as well (.916), considering the team he plays on. That ranks him 2nd on the team behind Chiasson. As for, Brodziak inflated Lucic possessions numbers......I don’t know what exactly you mean by that? How can someone inflate someone’s possession numbers, when they’re playing defense; playing in the defensive zone, as a line? If you ask me, the reason why Lucic numbers are so low, is because he’s being dragged down by Brodizak’s low shooting percentage, despite being the driving force on his line. Lucic has shown, he can be an effective player, playing in a grinder role with other like his kind. If he can have good chemistry with Brodizak and Kassian. I’m almost certain he can create the same chemistry with Sutter and Virtanen. Not saying I would particularly trade for Lucic (maybe three weeks ago I would have), with our logjam of forwards, but if Benning were to acquire him (with other being shipped out). I think he has a place on our team, despite what others think. Playing in a different system and playing at home could really motivate him as a player. Also, I think you took it literally, when I said Lucic is a better defensive player than Leivo. Let’s be honest here, none of the two are defensive strong.
  4. I’m not sure Leivo is a “better” player or better two-way player, for that matter, than Lucic. As I posted in the Lucic thread, which you seemingly ignored, but let me refresh your memory. Now compare that to Leivo’s 61% offensive zone start time, and his 54% corsi; playing on the top PP unit, with our top offensive players, with over 20+ minutes of more PP time than Lucic. So, let me ask you whose actually the better defensive forward out of the two? Leivo has shown some promising shifts, but he’s way too inconsistent with them. Beside those glimpse of brilliance, he’s been pretty unnoticeable more often than not when he’s on the ice. He just kind of coasts around. I do agree on your assessment that a Eriksson for Lucic swap is probably improbable for both teams as both players have negative value and I highly doubt Lucic “sweetener” is anything more than a second round pick or a B level prospect. If we were to trade for Lucic, I’ll ask Holland to retain 25% of his caphit for Goldobin and a 3rd. Then ship out Eriksson in a different trade for whatever we can get without retaining any salary back.

    Federer blew his chance to win his 21 major when he was up 9-8 in the final set, with two Championship points. Joker came back, and it was all downhill from there for Feds.
  6. The 2011 team made it all the way to the final game of the 2011 season. The 2019 team haven’t even played a single game together.
  7. That’s the one thing I hate about CDC. You can never have an opposite/negative opinion about our team without being targeted as a troll or as a hater. It’s like everything Benning does is perfect, and he cannot do any wrong. If Benning re-sign Eriksson at the end of his deal. Watch CDC spin that negative into a positive move.

    Don’t sleep on Dallas as well with Luka and Porzingis. I think the Jazz are the ones to beat, quite honestly. Despite having no big name superstars, they have amazing depth much like the Sixers in the East.

    I think it’s the other way around, that he never intend on staying. He used the Raptors as leverage, and forced OKC in trading PG. Also, there are reports that he’s been trying to recruit PG to join him since FA started.
  10. His father committed suicide before he went to the Oilers.

    I just hope Raptors fans’ have common sense and don’t boo him when he returns to TO next season as a Clipper.
  12. For the record, I think he can still play if given the opportunity in a different system (read my prior post). I already stated, in this thread, that carrying the NMC, isn’t a big issue for me. Pettersson, Horvat, Boeser, and Miller are the main protection players that we need to worry about. That’s only 4 out of the 7 protection slots used (5 if you count Lucic), with 2 slots available.

    I’m cool with him going to the Clippers, if all he wanted was to be closer to family. Mad respect for him not taking the easy way and joining Lebron and AD.
  14. Hello minister advance stats guy. Lucic was primarily used as a “shutdown” unit along side Brodizak, Kassian, and the Nuge. 55% defensive start time, tied for 2nd amongst forwards on the team with 70+ games played with a corsi percentage of 51%. Which led his team (70+ games played). Now, you can stay, his advance stats are highly skewed because he plays 3rd line minutes and has a ton of power play minutes, but you can’t defend a player like Pouliot on our team, last year and say Lucic is as worthless as our 12th/13th forward with those numbers. We just need to ask ourselves do the pros outweight the cons......probably not, but Lucic does give us a certain element to our team that we sorely lack. What does Eriksson give us that we don’t already have?
