Id rather keep Polak.
That should tell you my opinion of Marty "advanced stats" Marincin.
nothing about him is quick
Just his giveaways in the defensive zone and his lightning fast clearing attempts that sail clean over the glaas for a delay of game penalty
True. and I guess how quickly his man scored after the faceoff in game 6 OT
Dude Game 1 overtime was on Freddie. How can you just blame Marincin; because he failed to clear?
Game 6: Blame Babcock for a little as well. His LOVE for the 4th line also is to be blamed; Marcin could have tied up Williams a bit better but a lot of Leafs were out of position to begin with on the series winner for the caps
Marincin also played fine in the games Leafs won including a double overtime. It is not like whenever Marincin was on ice Leafs were getting scored on
Marty Marincin is the defining example of why the eye test should never be fully abandoned.
Looking at a spreadsheet does not show you the trainwreck that is Marty Marincin.
Fine. Hes great the majority of the time, but when he makes a mistake it is CATASTROPHIC.
Exactly, always remember the eyes too. That guy stinks, I don’t care what any stat says, not an NHL D man.
Get him out of here. He may be too good for the AHL, but he is not an NHL player. He is the poster child for analytics being imperfect. Plus he only really had one good season in analytics, he's been below average since then IIRC. He sucks and I wish him all the best somewhere else.
So he can take away a development spot? Kick his ass out the door!
I'm ok with him grooming our prospects in the AHL as well.
Seems like an elite AHL kinds guy
Our prospects need to take their spots and minutes not be given them.
How about giving both the boot....
I'm at the marlies game. He's had his issues staying on his skates. I noticed his laces are practically down to the ice. I wonder if that's normal for him.
